Secret #3


02/09/2012 by the revelation painting

This is a true revelation about The Revelation Painting. Throughout history it has been missed and will change religion, as well as history as we know it to be regarding Revelation in the bible. After working on this painting for the past 13 years I realize exactly how something of this magnitude was missed. Upon crushing stones for the painting I began to see how the colors created something very familiar although it was not fully apparent at first. Initially I saw the stones of the twelve foundations just as anyone else but then started to see a pattern. Intermittently within the pattern some stones seemed out of place. I began to research the origins of the stones, ancient known colors, their original names, ancient descriptions and then I realized what the stones meant. A story unfolded before my eyes!
The first stone of the twelve foundations is Jasper (please see the blog on Jasper and subsequent stones). I imagined a “New City” in the sky; the heavens and thought the correct stone was Ocean Jasper; a blue stone. I began requesting Ocean Jasper from all over the world. It was through a dream that I realized my mistake only 10 years later. A dream lead to the discovery and it was as though a tape recorder played the sentence: “His face shone like the sun, as a precious gemstone as clear as crystal; a Jasper stone.” Day and night the words taunted me. I researched Jasper; a quartz and realized that it was the clear, brilliance of quartz crystal which reflects small rainbows within it similar to a diamond effect! What better a stone to signify the pure cleanliness, shine and glory of God himself? A city which “shines like the sun”.
Sapphire followed but the common blue sapphire was not correct either. Upon researching the colors of Sapphire, I was in awe to realize that red Sapphire is a Ruby! I placed a Ruby for the second stone of the foundations and threw caution to the wind. It was a very expense risk and the first time I smashed a ruby into shards I thought I would pass out but interestingly enough, it was comfortable and extremely natural. Mingling ruby with the quartz began to create a fading effect, like dry pigments; the richer the mixing the darker the color, so a small amount caused a pink effect fading to a rich, translucent red-the hallmark of the brilliance only Ruby has. Little did I realize at that time the translucency also played a significant role in the meaning of the New City and the twelve foundation stones.
The third stone, Chalcedony was also known for its sky blue, heavenly color. Now, against the red and clear it was obvious that the blue was incorrect. According to the pattern of color I was trying to discover, it was apparent the Chalcedony was minimally red-orange, if not solidly red. I researched Chalcedony and once again was surprised to find that red is a rare color of the stone. The red of Chalcedony is more opaque that the Ruby. When I looked at the red color it reminded me of blood; the red-orange color of blood and it was like the brilliance of God was bleeding, fading like a slow bleed. It was only destiny that the next stone-Emerald was red. I battled over my theory and knew that at one time Emerald had to have been a red stone. I started from the beginning.
Emerald is a Beryl. Beryl’s come in all colors, including red. After intermittently learning about stones, it was when the economic crisis in the United States prompted me to start collecting a “nest egg”, something that would always have value throughout time like gold, platinum, precious gemstones… I looked for the rarest gemstone in the world and found beyond my wildest imagination red Beryl, a red “Emerald” or Bixbite! I still faced the dilemma of why the only Emerald I had ever known was green. I found that in the 1800s green Beryl was separated from the family and man called it Emerald! I had found the discrepancy amongst the stones and within the fade from translucency to opaque, the deepest red of Bixbite is the color of blood! My New City was bleeding!
What is the most powerful sacrifice made for humanity in the bible? Jesus shed his blood and died for our sins so that we will have everlasting life. Everlasting life in God’s New City! How appropriate for a New City-God’s New City, a new and pure beginning to shine in his image first and foremost. Secondly, to never let us forget the sacrifice which was made-Jesus’ blood and ultimately his life? The first six foundations show glory, a slow bleed, a vanishing bleed through Sardonyx and Sardius (Carnelian) turning red-orange to orange, and the seventh stone (a division stone from one message to another yet overlapping to connect the meanings of a promise), is Chrysolite-gold, like the streets of the New City shiny like glass.
The following colors after Chrysolite are the seven colors of the rainbow in their correct order. A rainbow signifies a “promise” as noted in the story of Noah’s Arch. Personally I would imagine that within the New City there would include a promise of purity, overall good and God’s plan. As I have stated before: I am not religious but I am learning to make my own decisions. If I were God I suppose I would have hidden astounding clues within my work which is what prompted the many mysteries within The Revelation Painting. It is an exciting time and Revelation is rising!

Revelation is about sevens and mysteries. There are seven colors in a rainbow. The seventh stone from top to bottom in the mentioned in the foundations is Chrysolite which signifies a division line within the foundation stones between two messages.

Rev. 21:11 …“It shone with the glory of God, and its brilliance was like that of a very precious jewel, like Jasper, clear as crystal.”

JASPER-QUARTZ “As clear as crystal”

Every color of the stone Corundum is considered a ”Sapphire” except for red. The red Sapphire is a Ruby.
Translucent red fading from the clear…starting to bleed…


More opaque, a richer red-a rare color…heavier bleeding…


A Beryl. In the 1800’s, man removed the green Beryl from the Beryl group and called it an Emerald. Is this the Emerald mentioned in the foundations of the New City? It fits perfectly into the scheme of color and meaning.
RED Beryl-Bixbite, the rarest gemstone in the world!
The feedback about this stone is amazing, many people are attracted to it compared to other stones of the painting and ask constantly what kind of stone it is. Why would that be?Why does the stone fall in this position within the foundations? Does it symbolize the rarity of Jesus’ blood? Only 60 pounds of this rare stone was ever mined!
(This gem is typically heavily included, opaque, and the faceted Gem is very expensive. You could expect to pay $20,000 to $25,000 for a one (1) carat Red Beryl; RED EMERALD!)


Blood (red blood cells and yellow plasma)
The blood is now fading from red to orange.

SARDONYX (Red Orange Transition)

Carnelian-pure ORANGE transitional stone into the remaining rainbow. The second color of the rainbow.



CHRYSOLITE-Beryl. Heliodor-golden, the streets of the New City are also gold like glass. This is the separation line between two messages.

CHRYSOLITE (Beryl-Golden)









Chrysoprase BLUE…rainbow blue (teal) reference the rainbow.

Chrysoprasus-Chrysoprase Blue

Hyacinth in ancient times and Hyacinth is Sapphire.
Sapphire or mixed Zircon (red/blue) INDIGO





The New City built by GOD will (1.) shine in the image of God’s glory (as noted above-the “shine”) as Jesus’ blood flows to let us (2.) never forget the sacrifice he made. The blood separated by the golden division line from blood to the seven (remaining five) rainbow colors in their correct order, of (3.) a promise of God’s love.

RAINBOW-A promise!


Please note the most of the stones mentioned have a spectrum of colors, which exhibit fading and transitional properties from one stone to another, therefore one color of the rainbow to the next, e.g. A Ruby may be represented in pink to red in various shades and a Topaz can range in the green-blues, among other colors. Amethyst can be seen in darkest purple to violet to an almost clear (among other colors), which could be considered blending with the clear Jasper and starting the process all over again.


The Journal of Dreams 01/31/2010 Experiment

Today has been filled with crushing rainbow quartz.  It has been a hard job but very good for anger management!  There is a lot of white powder residual I will have to sift out.  The goal is to leave only the sparkling shards.  Remarkably I have not received any cuts on my fingers yet which was an expectation since it is like glass once it is broken up.


The effect is not what I imagined.  I wanted all the colors of the rainbow to easily be seen.  This is not astounding and dramatic.  By adding hologram glitter, the effect is almost there but if I have to use the hologram glitter to get the effect, what is the point of crushing the rainbow quartz?  The effect of rainbow quartz is definitely best see by leaving it intact.

Ideally I need a sheet of rainbow quartz fiber optically lit from the back illuminating the rainbow by movement of the lights.  The sheet of quartz would have to be so thin that the weight of itself would break it.  I wonder what the price of a 48″ x 48″ piece would be?  I am still unsure if that would be the effect I am dreaming of.  I think I will look for hologram flakes, if there is such a thing.

I have to sit down and quietly imagine how to separate the sparkle of God from the “sea of glass-like fine crystal” in front of the throne since both are similar in appearance.  This is going to be another hard section to create.  Even though I anticipated glitches here and there, this section of the painting is extremely complicated and requires true imagination.

I was awake 24 hours trying to work and research the faces of the creatures connected to me since childhood.  I dreamt of them for a long, long time but never understood why.  Researching them and looking into their eyes, may help me to understand.  During my research time, I unburied my colored pencils knowing I would need them for the eyes of the creatures.  I sat sharpening hundreds of colored pencils getting them ready.  It’s been too long since I used them and I missed them.

What I have come up with so far is that the six wings of each creature will have multicoloured eyes representing every race and nationality.  There maybe eyes of every color of the rainbow-natural or not.  To relieve wasting paint, I think I will mix colors into colors until I get to “mud” which is a term used when mud color results from many colors mixed together.  It is a tragedy in painting unless you are looking for it.  In this case I will need the browns.

I also went to look at feathers today.  There are some magnificent feathers out there!  I was draw to the peacock of course but the eyes at the ends will clash with the humanistic eyes I am striving to create.  The fancy feathers also appealed to me, like the ones which sit on top of the head like a mohawk, but they would be difficult to place as they are meant to stand straight up.  I will look on Ebay for feather sellers and see what is there.

The four wooden canvases are up and ready for the creation of God!  This is a dangerous project.  Since I live in an apartment, I really cannot hammer big nails in the walls to hold these wooden canvases so I had to be creative.  Each canvas is held in place be strips of silk tape and tacked to the wall.  Every few hours, the right top one works its way forward and I have to re-tack it.  I think it is a little warped.  Hopefully in adding the moisture of paint and re-tacking it often, the minute warp will resolve.  In the interim, I have to be extremely careful not to let it fall.  Due to the weight of it, it would cause damage to itself and/or the environment.

This area is what I have dreamed about my entire life and it is exciting to think about starting it.  The upper left canvas is the core of where God will be,  Originally he was going to cover 4 canvases in a circle of light but the wood-worker brought up a good point about drilling holes through the frames and the mismatch of light.  If holes are drilled through the frames in the amounts needed from 2mm-6mm, it would destroy the integrity of the canvas.  If I tried to expand light from one canvas to the other, there would be a line of no light where the frame is.  I made the core of light on the upper left-a circle taking up nearly the entire canvas.

I searched and searched for the sparkle I imagined for this section.  Glitter which encompasses all the colors of the rainbow, although the bible mentions an “emerald” rainbow around God, I do not believe it means green.  I believe the rainbow to be reds and oranges as noted in blogs I have written about the stones of The Revelation Painting-specifically The New City.  I am looking at 6 coats of the brightest white, followed by placement of the rainbow in reds and oranges around the throne.  The throne is also a problem.  What kind of throne?  I researched in google images for pictures of thrones and am undecided.

If the light is bright and brilliant, I may be able to make only pieces of the throne visible under shadows which block the light, like from the wings of The Four Living Creatures.  I thought this would be an easy section to paint, prehaps the easiest of the entire painting but am fast learning that it may be the most complicated scene!  I had problems with the candlesticks early on and now the throne.  From my mother’s description in her story of God, she said he was the “brightest light”.  About 10 years ago I contacted NASA for a custom-made light that would insult the eyes but not harm them.  I never heard back.

It seemed as though The New City would have been the finale’ of the painting but it now seems nearly every scene is a finale’ in itself.  If I can imagine it all together, I would see the attraction for the lights and movement in Scene II (including the Hemorrhage-the bleed), but now The Four Horsemen of Scene III has become very dramatic, and Babylon will sparkle prehaps more than the crushed stones of The New CIty!  It is a magnificent work of art.  I cannot wait to see it all together myself.  I just keep imagining myself standing before it, all put together for the first time.  The news cameras are there, so many people and I bust out crying.

The snow is falling today.  When I got off work this morning there were frosted snowflakes on the windows of my car.  While I waited for the car to warm up, I took pictures of them with my cell phone.  The colors where sparkling blues, greens, yellows, oranges, just about every color of the rainbow.  Although I was freezing and tired, it wasn’t too much to sit for 10 minutes trying to capture the sparkle and magic of it all.  I think that is otherwise known as “smelling the roses”.

I studied the amazing natural designs and stunning details.  The colors were what I imagined God to be in The Revelation Painting.  The closest thing I know to that effect is hologram glitter.  It has every color of the rainbow within it.  Diamonds of course have that effect to but are not only out of my reach, I do not think I would give diamond thieves the satisfaction even if I had the money for them.  Search blood diamonds and see the stories.

I will be moving the 4 canvases down today and replacing them with 4 wooden canvases and start working on God.  I imagine this morning inspired me to start working on it.  I was going to work in the other direction since some of the work on those canvases was done long ago.  Maybe it is a better approach to work from start to finish in the direction of the painting, as I have already seen that the black horse is bigger than my original sketch and measurements in The Journal of Measures.

The need to sleep is overwhelming almost every time I try to paint.  I have set goals and am forcing myself to paint even if I do not think I can.  In effort to get relief, I built a page into the website called GIVE/TAKE where not only did I list the things needed to complete the painting, but I listed avenues for corporate sponsorship.  Hopefully someone will take an interest in the painting and support me enough to allow for restful painting instead of fatigued painting.  I am prepared either way.

The Journal of Dreams-Artist Personal Reflections

As an artist and a human being, the last thing I wanted to do was start another blog.  The Revelation Painting is a full-time job in itself, not to mention the seven accompanying journals and the current blogs on wordpress, myspace, facebook, and the social networking sites.  It was during my constant updating of these sites I realized there was no real place to put my personal perspectives about the painting, my feelings, controversies, or any other way to express myself and the measures taken to independently market the painting.

This blog is designed mainly to organize a portion of the journal-The Journal of Dreams which is not only the story of the origination of the painting, feelings and actual dreams, but the entire last year coined The Finale’, of The Revelation Painting.  Please feel free to see the blogroll to the right to see other blogs, photos and sites of the painting including www.therevelationpaintingjournals.wordpress.com where other parts of the remaining journals are showcased.  It has been a long and worthwhile journey where I learned more than I could have ever imagined.

Currently I am unsure if any pictures will be posted here since there are many other blogs for photos of work in progress and finished works.  I prefer to use this site for writing in a daily, diary-like fashion and will hopefully use entries in The Journal of Dreams which is one of seven journals to accompany the painting which most notably catalogs the last year of the making of The Revelation Painting.  It is rare that an artist life during a painting of this magnitude is cataloged, and even rarer that the audience gets a first hand look.  Welcome to The Journal of Dreams…
