This a a painting of the first image I saw from the James Webb Space Telescope. One of my thoughts was that we can keep looking farther and farther into space, but God is farther still. We can’t ever get to the end of God.

Psalm 139:8 If I ascend to heaven, You are there If I make my bed in Sheol, behold, You are there.

Corrie Ten Boom - There is no pit so deep that God’s love is not deeper still.

It is amazing to me that such a big God would want to make and have a relationship with each one of us. He made this little sphere we call home and put us on it, as well as all we would need to live here. For those of us going to heaven, eternity will not be long enough to explore all of Who God is. What an awesome God!

In reading Genesis again, chapter 4 verse 22 popped out at me. It says that Tubal-Cain was a forger of all implements of bronze and iron. This was just seven generations after Adam. Very early on people were making and using tools out of metals, not just wood and rock.

When I came up with doing this painting, the cloud was going to be the main thought. I had struggles getting it right, so now the focus is the process.

For the sunset of the year 2021, here is a sunset painting.

As we reflect on this past year, we can be reminded that the God Who makes the sun set also makes it rise on a new day. The footsteps in the sand can remind us of the people who have come into and gone out of our lives this year, and be thankful for the impact each has made.

Looking forward to the sunrise!

This is another new technique for me, poured watercolor.
