A colourful rainbow emerges from the 2D, black-and-white coloured earth which brings the painting to life. The white silhouette cutout represents God speaking the words of Genesis 9:11. This brings to focus the centrepiece of God’s amazing promise, represented by the rainbow.
I made this piece to remind us of God’s promise that His mercies and compassion are new every morning. The felt spring blossoms are meant to bring to mind a new season. God is faithful. After the flood, He promised that as long as the earth remains, the cycles would continue predictably. This is God’s grace towards His creation. The birds, small as they are, which sing at the dawn of each new day, are also under God’s care. Because God is so merciful, faithful and loving, we can place our trust and hope in Him!
