...And then there was Light!

Hexaemeron© (Day 1) signifies a term of six days, or, technically, the history of the six days' work of creation, as contained in the first chapter of Genesis.

In the beams from the upper left Left to under Right (which separate the light from the dark) is written in Latin:

Genesis 1:
1:3. Dixitque Deus fiat lux et facta est lux

(And God said: Be light made. And light was made.)

1:4. Et vidit Deus lucem quod esset bona et divisit lucem ac tenebras
(And God saw the light that it was good; and he divided the light from the darkness.)

1:5. Appellavitque lucem diem et tenebras noctem factumque est vespere et mane dies unus.
(And he called the light Day, and the darkness Night; and there was evening and morning one day)

---I think this is a beautiful text---

Just today I pulled up a blank file (what Adobe elements calls a canvas or painting surface) , and wondered how to render time. My blank canvas led to my blank mind. So I decided to see what my pals were doing at art wanted , your profound piece was the first art work my browser found. I love the description, subject, and of course the application of media of your “Hexaemeron”. It all works. Lovely art work , and congrats on the sell!
