'He made the stars also'

'He made the Stars also' (Oil on canvas board 30x30) FOR SALE £67

I was asked by a contact on Twitter if I could paint something to help promote their campaign to reduce light pollution so we can enjoy the wonders of the sky at night! Having lived in Africa I have often been in awe at the amazing spectacle of an African sky at night in the bush, without all the light pollution which we endure in this country.

I have always loved this verse in Genesis 1 v16; 'he made the stars also'. What a wonderful example of understatement!

This was painted quickly in oils so that I could get the richness of colour in the  sky just as the sun has gone down as the light show of stars appears.
