Ned Bustard

"For since the creation of the world God's invisible qualities his eternal power and divine nature have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse." This painting shows a person doing all they can to not see God in his handiwork like the dwarves in C.S. Lewis' The Last Battle resist seeing Aslan's country. The blue and green show the created earth and sky with handprints in the texture of the paint to show the mark of the creator. The yellow box harkens to medieval art where the sky would be in gold to show the nearness of heaven the spiritual is all around the figure in the center. This piece addresses why God would send people to Hell. In this painting we see this person chooses to go there willingly.
