This piece shows the many elements that go into the process of being filled.
The green vine represents that which is growing and filling---life.
The background of vertical gray lines shows the space yet to be filled. Each line divides the space into sections of time, similar to notches on a timeline.
The white and gold plants point toward an eternal perspective. Similar to the green vine, they are living and growing, but contrasted to the vine, they operate on a different plane. They are not tied to the background of time but rather supersede it---a future glory layered over a time-bound reality.
Let’s think of it this way: what we are growing and becoming now has a direct correlation to what we will become in the fullness of time. When time ends and we enter into eternity, the decisions and investments we have made will carry over. “Reaching Fullness” reminds us that as we move toward fullness, it is imperative that we remember what comes next. Eternity. Are we living in light of this future reality?
This is a mixed media piece which includes gallery wrapped canvas (36x24x1.5"), oil paint, metallic oil paint, cold-pressed watercolor paper, graphite, gel medium, and varnish. This style of collage painting helps express the layers, textures and varying elements that come together to tell the story with more depth and interest than paint and canvas alone.
The painting comes unframed unless you purchase a framing option but is painted on all sides if you choose to display it unframed.
Paintings usually ship within 1-2 weeks unframed, 2-3 if you choose the framing option. Shipping costs are included (approx. $100 value) and additional shipping costs of the frame are wrapped into that price.
About this collection:
The Fullness of Time Collection explores what it means to live within the bounds of time. What is the purpose of time? What are we filling our time with? What is time moving towards? When we better understand these concepts we are able to move through life in agreement with time. We start to understand right moments, proper perspective, and future fulfillment. This collection highlights different aspects of the fullness of time.
