Immortal Diamond // Unbreakable

When I think about the beauty to which I am so attracted, I think of...Diamonds! What are they? They are just dirty rocks, yet, rare and hard to come by. Yet in the hands of the master artist, the hardest substance can be cut into splendid objects that capture and refract light. I can’t help but think of Jesus- my rock, when I think of what a diamond does- it sparkles, it allows light to flow through it. Jesus came into the world, humbly, yet was God. He came into the human world, hidden, rough, without Glory, yet through his death, he was cut down, into the splendor of the resurrection. The diamond is held down in a setting; it is constrained but it’s light is not contained. It is designed but it’s potential for beauty is not defined-its colors change and flux depending on the light and chroma set before it.

These images are for indulging in the pleasure of looking at the many colors and geometric patterns and shapes. Yes, these paintings are about desire. I bring beautiful. These works are also an analogy of the process we can go through in life: from rough to splendid, if we allow ourselves to be cut under the hand of the creative, master Artist and shaped by His plan of transformation and redemption.

The simple rose cut of a diamond—parallel to the starting place of the soul—childhood. It’s birthday parties, dancing, friends. It’s freshly cut grass. It’s jumping in the cool waters of the neighborhood swimming pool, on a hot day. It’s roller skates. It’s sisterhood. After a careful application of the Portland-cloud-cover-winter-is-never-over-actually-it’s-only-fall, grayed-out color in the geometric rose-cut diamond central section of the painting, I swept my flat brush through the luxurious white oil paint. I smiled the whole time as I painted the background, because I loved the bend in the bristles as I drug it through the buttery texture of the paint. It was moments full of pleasure. As I painted, I became self-conscious of the perception that maybe the rainbow flecks were a little excessive, but then I remembered that the canvas is exactly where I can go overboard. I don’t have to be measured, I don’t have to be calculated. Each rainbow fleck is a back flip from my painting chair. I am unashamed of rainbows. Each brush of color is a hoop and a holler.
