One of the trickiest things for me is that I need to work on balancing a recognizable image with an abstract design. So far, my favorite paintings in this group are primarily the ones where design trumped representation.
Ezekiel 1:16 (Amplified Bible) Regarding the appearance of the wheels and their construction: they gleamed like chrysolite (beryl, olivine); and the four were made alike. Their appearance and construction were a wheel [set at a right angle] within a wheel.
Revelation 21:20 (New American Standard Bible) "the fifth, sardonyx; the sixth, sardius; the seventh, chrysolite; the eighth, beryl; the ninth, topaz; the tenth, chrysoprase; the eleventh, jacinth; the twelfth, amethyst.
