This is a digital painting made on Corel Painter, and then adjusted on Synthetik Studio Artist 5.5. Most likely this art piece will keep evolving, which is why I titled it, “Golden Promise, Version 1.”
I’ve been thinking about the promises of God and the color gold, which can represent the riches and glory of the Lord, but it also reminds me of the Japanese Kintsugi process which repairs broken pottery with powdered gold, which makes it stronger and more beautiful. This has been a theme that God has shown me about how He collects our broken pieces and and fastens them together in a more beautiful version then they were before, for ultimate healing. He leaves the story of brokenness visible, but creates a new story of repair, redemption, and restoration. He makes us stronger and more beautiful then we ever were before once the healing process is complete.
As usual in my intuitive, spontaneous approach, I start very loose, with lots of scribbles and free flowing forms, then gradually tighten up the image with fine details. This image barely got past the scribble stage, but I still like it, and it might be fun to keep adding to this post as it evolves.
