The imagery in the book of Ezekial in the Bible has always fascinated me. How he saw all that and didn't lose his mind had to be the grace of God!! Sometime in the 80's I got the courage to attempt to depict part of Ezekial's vision in a painting. I tried to keep it very bright, very orange to reflect how he described what he saw. I'm sure he had to describe it in relation to what he knew on earth. The face of the man in this painting is based on a photo I took of my Dad.
I'm not sure I would label this painting a success, but certainly an attempt. It would be interesting to try this one again, twenty years later.
