The Creativity of God by AnimaxiomArt The Creativity of God by AnimaxiomArt
Paper, 15" x 30"

This is a piece entered to a contest at a local church. The theme for the contest is "Creation". My grampa, who is 89, wrote the poem that inspired the piece.

"The word tells us that through Him and for Him all things were created,
That we are as clay in the potter's hands.
What kind of potter possesses the power to change the seasons
And the subtlety to bring forth a radiant flower from the smallest bud
Or endows a fragile monarch butterfly with the instinct to travel thousands of miles
Or through the thunder and lightning of a panoramic storm brings life-giving rain?
Who blesses a humble grain of wheat by some miracle to germinate and produce a stalk with multiple grains at its head?
When planted in great numbers it produces food for thousands.
The Word tells us that the pinnacle of creation,
The baby conceived in a virgin's womb by the Holy Spirit
Died on a cross to pay for his workmanship's failures
That if we believe in Him we do not perish but are re-created by nail-scarred hands
Emerging as from a cocoon
Raptured souls finding rest beyond the river
Glorifying the triune Creator forever and ever!

--Jack L. Griffin"

I can't remember whether I've already posted on this, but this is beautiful.  Both your grampa's poem and your arrangement for it are absolutely gorgeous!

This is absolutely magnificent.  I love all of the layers and the spectrum of colors, and all of the spiraling forms.  It evokes both fractal designs and Art Nouveau, both of which I love.  Mucho kudos to both you and your grandfather for such an elegant collaboration.
