Artwork in Progress: God’s Halo

I have been working on a Halo for God in my artwork. I had originally given God a Halo of light for this artwork, however, I was inspired to change this and give God a different Halo by an image I saw in my mind’s eye, whilst at Church. In my mind’s eye, I saw Jesus, but he did not have a glowing Halo, I saw fire shooting out from around his head, and the flames were continually moving, it was like a combination of fire and energy. Now painting fire and energy is a really difficult with traditional paint; it’s hard to get it to glow like real fire and light. It’s not impossible, but it’s a huge challenge. So I had a go at using my digital software to create a glowing halo of fire and energy and here is the result.

The Scripture inspiring this is:

Hebrews 12:29

“for indeed our God is a consuming fire.”
