• In the Beginning • Art by Diana Castillo • Mixed media on canvas • Mediums include: acrylic paint, modeling paste, glitter, mica flakes, Swaroski Crystals • 20"x24" I'm very excited to introduce one of my latest completed works "In the Beginning". Lions are such beautiful creatures and are often mentioned in the bible. The dove represents Jesus Christ and the waterfall represents His everlasting fountain of eternal life in Him. Whomever comes to drink from His well, will be filled. The fish in the water reminds me of Peter and the disciples, fisher of men. This painting is inspired by several different scritpures in the bible. God sent His only begotten Son as Lord and Savior. In the beginning, God was the Word and this scripture is mentioned in the bible to remind us of God's promises for all living beings. Some people have mentioned, while observing the lion couple, the symbolism of a God ordained marraige. The glistening glitter gives this painting a majestic and wonderous feeling.

And the evening and the morning were the fifth day. And God said, Let the earth bring forth the living creature after his kind, cattle, and creeping thing, and beast of the earth after his kind: and it was so. And God made the beast of the earth after his kind, and cattle after their kind, and every thing that creepeth upon the earth after his kind and God saw that it was good.
Whoever drinks the water I give them will never thirst. Indeed, the water I give them will become in them a spring of water welling up to eternal life.
Jesus said to them, "Follow me and I will make you fishers of men.
