palatable nightscape of varying bluntness

Painted oils on canvas in 2011, though there are are older fully finished paintings below the surface. And "painted" is the wrong word -- I used two palette knifes, one sharper than the other. It's 40.5 x 30.5 cm.

untitled but maybe BLUE NIGHTSCAPE by srs

The painting in the photo is not the final version. On the left hand side, I painted over the small green rectangle about 10 cm up from the bottom. On the right hand side, about 20 cm up from the bottom I removed the grid element -- the part that looks a bit like an array of eggs, but with the top right hand corner missing. I also removed the part where four horizontal stripes meet five vertical stripes, with some stripes partially obliterated. And then I painted something on top of that part, but I can't remember what. Then I gave the painting away to aa* without taking a photo of the final version. Silly me!

satan comes in the physically disguised (anti in greek) as Christ bringing peace and prosperity. True Christ comes in the full glory of GOD and with the brightness of HIS coming the elements will burn , heaven and earth will be on fire with vengence. CHRIST plainly warns us in Matt 24, Luke 21, Mark 13 that HE returns AFTER the great tribulation and AFTER satan antiChrist sits in the temple proclaiming to be GOD.

There's 2 white horse riders in Rev 6:1 and Rev 19:11 which one will you believe in?

The tares fly away the wheat remains. the tares are the ones taken and fly away. FATHER tells exactly what HE thinks about those who teach false rapture in Eze 13. Have you read it?

II thess Christ comes AFTER the great falling away, and those who are harvested out of season (have their flight in winter).they believe and receive satan to be Christ thus are marked as satans tare in the forehead ,the mind,belief in satan. they reject this oil of truth and will lose their spiritual virginity (those with child who give suck are pregnant by belief in the false one) Paul says he wants to present us as spiritual chaste virgins unlike eve was in the garden. The tares are the "children" of satan. If the angels who willingly left their place (Jude)and came down to make giants and such can make children is it a surprise satan did it first?

II thess 4 talks about the dead in Christ resurrect at death (and those in the grave are the unsaved ,see the story of Lazarus and the rich man). The graves will open up but it's not the saved in the grave but the unsaved. The gathering together of Fathers children and the gathering of satan's children the tares are SEPARATE events!!!!

DO NOT BE FOOLED BY satan!!!!!!!!!
Father will let the fake servants be fooled Great delusion and fall away. HE SAID SO.

there's a test coming, satan is the tester and FATHER sent us the answer book, I hope you've studied or maybe you just don't have time?
Good luck with that.

Thanks for your comment, Anonymous. It's interesting but doesn't seem to relate directly to the contents of the post. BTW I'm also interested in those times when angels knew the daughters of men.


By Jove! The comment earlier goes tangent. Some people are too much into Satan and Angel things as if those are from some fantasy flicks. We are both Satan and Angels..

Anyways, I can't understand the knife work you can make such a beautiful illustration with knives? Those color comibination is exotic...

Hi Shubhajit, re the tangential comment: I agree. The truth is always in the middle, not black or white but grey.

Re the painting, the different edges and points of the knives are used for different things. The long edges for example are used to create straight lines. The points can be used to "draw" with, as long as there is a big contrast between the layer on top and the layer below

But to be honest, there is some brushwork in the painting, it's not entirely knives./

Thanks for stopping by --- good to hear from you again.
