Since today is the 24th birthday of my beautiful daughter, and we are going to visit her this afternoon, this blog post will be short!

Crystal is mentioned a lot in the Bible. How do you respond to a clear, faceted stone? Yesterday reinforced the idea of design first, and representation second, and that is what steered my choices for today's painting. 

Job 28:18 “Coral and crystal are not to be mentioned; And the acquisition of wisdom is above that of pearls.
Isaiah 54:12 “Moreover, I will make your battlements of rubies, And your gates of crystal, And your entire wall of precious stones.
Ezekiel 1:22 [ Vision of Divine Glory ] Now over the heads of the living beings there was something like an expanse, like the awesome gleam of crystal, spread out over their heads.
Revelation 4:6 and before the throne there was something like a sea of glass, like crystal; and in the center and around the throne, four living creatures full of eyes in front and behind.
Revelation 22:1 Then he showed me a river of the water of life, clear as crystal, coming from the  throne of God and of the Lamb
