This painting is highly reflective because there are many layers of iridescent paint. The mica in these paints gleams in such a way that it is almost glowing - and nearly impossible to represent with a photo! :(
The circle which represents our planet earth is textured with molding paste and looks and feels completely different from the surrounding glow. I tried to imagine God, the Creator, shrinking Himself in every way - intellectually, in power, in size, and in every other way - to enter His creation as a baby. It is completely unfathomable.
John 1:14 (AMP) And the Word (Christ) became flesh (human, incarnate) and tabernacled (fixed His tent of flesh, lived awhile) among us; and we saw His glory (His honor, His majesty), such glory as an only begotten son receives from his father, full of grace (favor, loving-kindness) and truth.
