Lenten Series 2015

Noah and the Rainbow
This post begins the self-assigned project to do a painting for each week of Lent.  From the Sunday readings I will pick a theme and then create some art that represents one or more of the ideas.

This Sunday we read that God made a covenant with Noah and all living beings that there would never again be a destructive flood to destroy all mortal beings.  The sign of this covenant is the rainbow.

This simple painting wasn't really so simple to create.  I started with the colors of the rainbow painted into the back ground,  Then I layered shapes using a gelli plate multiple times to get the block-like shapes which I made from hand-cut stencils.  After that I collaged some lightweight painted paper onto the shapes, outlined with ink, added decorative swirls and called it finished.
