Good News about the Perks for Upcoming Indiegogo Campaign

June 16th, 2014 by Admin | No Comments | Filed in Book, Inspirational Stuff, Prophecy

We are almost ready to go live!

If you have been reading my blogs you know that I hit a glitch as regarding the upcoming Indiegogo Crowd Funding Campaign for publishing the full sized Genesis book as an e book and also publishing it as a printed book using Print on Demand publishing (POD). Essentially the POD printers, including Amazon’s Create Space, will only print all in black and white or all in color. My books are color illustrated and the SHMR Activities (visual brain games for enhanced vision of SHMR/Bible Eyes) need to have images in color but these illustrations are less than half of the book. Printing every page in color makes the price too exorbitant for wide distribution as a trade book.

Since almost every perk I had for the proposed crowd funding campaign included a least one copy of a printed Genesis book based on POD printing, the campaign perks needed to completely revised. Now, if a stretch funding goal is reached, I will be available to offer printed books and donors can upgrade to include them. This way we can keep the original funding goal lower so all donors can keep their perks. Genesis e books are included as a perk at every donation support level in the revised campaign.

It turns out that the new revised perks are better for campaign supporters as now there is much more art included.  For the first and only possibly the only time original paintings of mine are being openly offered over the web.  Also for the first time there will be original prints offered. Making these perks even better is the discount since I there is no dealer or gallery to share the sale. So, some of the perks can be understood as an investor’s or flipper’s dream.

The original paintings and prints are limited. Yet, there is art, and books, and more being offered to fit anyone’s budget.

Importantly, as a supporter you will be helping to fund and bring the good news of revolutionary Post Conceptual UnGraven Image art to other people. This is important as not only can this art be actually vision changing but it seems that a new vision with “Eyes that see” in the Latter Days is prophesied in both testaments of the Bible! You will be supporting bring daily on-going inspiration (and for believers and the observant an increasing awareness of The Presence) into your life and into the lives of others through this new vision.

I know this seems amazing, even unbelievable. It took me a while (OK, a couple of years) to come to terms with what is happening via UnGraven Image Art. This is why I am currently freely giving the e book In the Beginning away. It tells the story of how this new art theory and art came to be, and also the discovery of the SHMR (pronounced like show-more, or the Hebrew word “shomer”, which means to watch or observe – think watchman on the wall) way of seeing that is also called Bible Eyes. Did you know that the “eyes that see” verse is the most repeated verse in both testaments, and that this includes prophecy for the Latter Days?

At the web page http://artofseeingthedivine.com/booklet.htm you will find In the Beginning as a free download in various formats other that PDF, for Kindle, IPad, iPhone, Androids, and Nook devices. Once the campaign ends In the Beginning e book will no longer be free. It will be slightly revised and include acknowledgement of some supporting donors. Then it will be placed on Amazon. So get your copy or copies now! And share the In the Beginning  e books or links with others — you not only have my permission, I urge you do do this even to the extent of placing links to the URLs of the downloads on your blogs or in emails. Please share the vision.

Aside from being informative and inspirational, In the Beginning is fun and even at times funny. After all, I was a comedy and scriptwriter. Plus, there are more Latter Days prophecies that seem to have come true, but not noticed by others, which are revealed in the book.

In the next email to newsletter members secret information will be included pertaining exactly when the fundraising campaign will go live. This information is valuable as it gives a head start towards funding the campaign and obtaining the limited Early Bird and Door Buster perks To sign up for the newsletter use the box in the sidebar of this blog or if you are reading this in an email or on a blog that someone kindly cut and pasted to share, then go to http://artofseeingthedivine.com/newsletter.htm

How to Upload & Read your New Free EBook PDF for Kindle Fire or Kindle Fire HD

May 9th, 2014 by Admin | No Comments | Filed in Bible, Book, Inspirational Stuff, Social Media & Media

It is now easy for you to acquire and read your free (*for a limited time) new copy of In the Beginning using your Kindle Fire or Kindle Fire HD – or even a black and white text Kindle. The color readers are preferred as this ebook includes color illustrations.  We have taken steps to make this especially stress-free for Kindle users.

Amazon has two different ways that users of Kindles can download and read PDFs.  The first method is to download to a Kindle directly from a PC. The second was is to upload a PDF to a Kindle via an email sent to a Kindle.

PC to Kindle Method

1. Download the PDF of In the Beginning to the PC. Click on the web link provided – a new window will open up. In that window you will see the ebook’s cover. In the top right corner of the screen are icons. Click on the little icon that looks like a floppy disc and has a down pointing arrow on it. The PDF of the ebook will automatically download, and will then be available to you from your download folder. You can use this link to immediately get your copy, CLICK: http://artofseeingthedivine.com/images/In%20theBeginningCrowdFunding.pdf

2.Connect your Kindle device to your computer using a USB cable. When connected to a computer,  Kindle devices  go into USB drive mode, which disconnects them from a wireless connection. This is fine, as they will reconnect once disconnected from a PC.

3.After you’ve connected your device to your computer, your Kindle will appear in the same location USB drives usually appear.

  On a Mac: Your Kindle will appear on your desktop.

  In Windows: Click Start, and then click Computer or My Computer. Click on Kindle to open the Kindle drive.

4. On the PC, use your mouse to Drag your personal document from your desktop or Download folder in widows and drop it into the Documents folder in the Kindle drive. [Note: some Windows users find it easier to send the downloaded PDF to their desktop, especially if their Kindle drive is
there. Then the Drag action is accomplished on the desktop.]

5. Once the download is completed you can safely eject your Kindle device, and then unplug your Kindle device from your computer.

6. The PDF of In the Beginning will appear on the home screen of your Kindle. For Kindle Fire devices, tap Docs from the home screen to view your documents.

Email to Kindle Method

There are two ways that you can get your copy of In the Beginning via email.  We can either email your Kindle account directly with the zipped PDF or we can email a different email account (like the one you wish to use to subscribe to the newsletter and/or contribute to our Indiegogo campaign), and then you can send it to your own Kindle email account.  This is about the same as if you downloaded the PDF unto a PC, zipped it and emailed it to your own Kindle email account.

A.  First Email to Kindle Method. We email your Kindle account directly. To do this you must first set up your Approved Personal Document E-mail list to include our special account for sending the free copy of In the Beginning to kindle email addresses. 

1. Visit Manage Your Content and Devices, and then click Personal Documents Settings. Click Add a new approved e-mail address under Approved Personal Document E-mail List.  Enter our special email address: kindlebook@artofseeingthedivine.com.
Click Add Address. [Note that after you have the ebook you can remove our address from your Kindle. We do not send newsletters to Kindle addresses.]

              2. After completing step 1 above, using your regular email address, send an email to kindlebook@artofseeingthedivine.com In the subject please write “eBook”, so we know it is not spam. In the body simply put your Kindle address. Note that according to Amazon you must have completed the step above that whitelists our special email address for our email to reach you. Your Kindle also needs to have wireless when you access your Kindle email.

3. We will then send you a zipped file of the PDF of In the Beginning. The subject of our email to you will say “convert’ . This tells your Kindle to convert the zip file to be readable on your Kindle. Simply click on the email and your Kindle will automatically open and convert the file. You will find it stored in your Kindle Library.

B. Second email to Kindle method:

1. Using the email address that you usually use, send an email to zipbook@artofseeingthedivine.com. Notice that this is a different account than the email account above. That is because the direct to Kindle email must have a subject line that only says “convert”.

2. We will automatically send a link to a zipped PDF file of In the Beginning back to the same non-Kindle email
address.

  a. Or, you can take the attached zip file and attach it to an email that you personally send to your Kindle. Remember that you must place the word ”convert” in that email’s subject line for this method to work.

   b. Plus you can read the unzipped file on your PC or other device. You can unzip and open the file with a PC or iPad and follow the directions above for uploading a PDF to a Kindle from a PC.

PDF files can also be uploaded to regular non-color Kindles. Since the majority of pages are text only, it can work to read the text of In the Beginning on a non-color Kindle, and then use a PC or other device that reads PDF in color for the SHMR activities and to see the color illustration.

To enable Personal Document Archiving, follow the steps above and check the box next to Enable personal document archiving in your own “My Kindle librar”y.

For more on Kindle Personal Documents Service See:
http://www.amazon.com/gp/help/customer/display.html?nodeId=200767340

* Note:  The In the Beginning ebook is available for free prior to and during an Indiegogo campaign to help raise funds to publish a larger book and support the art of Post Conceptual UnGraven Image.

In The Beginning’s Cover Story

April 18th, 2014 by Admin | No Comments | Filed in Bible, Book, Brain & Perception, Inspirational Stuff, Prophecy

In the Beginning tells the story of the experiment that became Post Conceptual Art’s New theory, including UnGraven Image art, and then the discovery of how that art can actually change how people see — and how that new way of seeing seems to fulfill Bible prophesy for the Latter Days.

The image below reveals the new cover for the book.

So that you can see about this for yourself, the ebook of In the Beginning, will be available for free, as a gift during an upcoming Crowd Funding campaign, to fund a larger book and ebook that entitled Genesis. The fastest way to get your free copy and news of the funding campaign so you can have first dibs on the Early Bird and Door Buster rewards (think: original art) is become a member of my newsletter. The ebook’s free availability will also be announced on my two blogs,ungravenimage.com/blog and, artofseeingthedivine.com/blog, and also through posts and tweets on social media.

The art image in the cover is from my Genesis Sunsets and also Duets series, and the sub-series of “Hands”. Here, I am doing a visual duet with Michelangelo’s creation of Adam from the Sistine Chapel. All of my strokes for the sunset are the original letters of Genesis 1-2:7. You will find more on both sunsets, including art and inspiration and a new SHRM Activity in the upcoming ebook.

Blood MoonTetrads: What Are They?

April 11th, 2014 by Admin | No Comments | Filed in Bible, Book, Prophecy

This year’s Passover on April 14, and Sukkot (Feast of Tabernacles) on October 8, fall on the exact same Gregorian calendar dates as they did in 70 CE, the year the Temple is Jerusalem was destroyed and the Jews were forced out of Israel by the Romans.  What makes this relevant is that four blood moons, as part of a tetrad, accompany both events.

In 2008, Mark Biltz  a Tacoma, Washington, pastor began to teach that the Second Coming of the Messiah might occur in the fall of 2015. He based this prediction on the pattern of the upcoming rereads Pastor Biltz’s theory became an Internet sensation. Then he wrote a book about this.

Then in 2013, the well known  Pastor John Hagee, also wrote a book, Four Blood Moons: Something is about to change. Pastor Hagee was able to generate much more publicity for the upcoming event and he credits Pastor Blitz, who then also wrote a book.

Both pastors hold that when a tetrad falls upon the Jewish holidays around the time of momentous events for Jews. Both pastors are also ardent supporters of Israel.

The Jewish press has also picked this news up. Roy S. Neuberger wrote about the upcoming lunar eclipses for the Jewish Press http://www.jewishpress.com/indepth/front-page/eclipses-red-moons-and-chanukah/2013/11/27/. He Neuberger reminds that the Gemara comments: “The rabbis taught in a beraisa: During the time the sun is stricken, it is a bad omen for idolaters. [During the time that] the moon is stricken, it is a bad omen for the Jewish people” (Sukkah 29a). [Note: a beraisa is a tradition in the Jewish oral law not incorporated in the Mishnah.}

The first blood moon of 2014 also coincides with an alignment of Earth, Mars and the sun, which places Mars directly behind the earth as it faces the lunar eclipse. That does not seem to have precedence in relation to past tetrads. Since the moon exerts a strong influence on tides, and we know that the both mars and the sun can influence our weather and planet. Yet, exactly what conditions might follow for each from this Passover astral event the space and weather science sites online have not predicted.

On the first night of Passover, April 14, 2014, at 10:58 p.m. PDT, the moon will move into Earth’s shadow. The full lunar eclipse — when the entirety of the moon is shaded by Earth — begins just over an hour later at 12:07 a.m. and lasts until 1:25 a.m. PDT. This will all be visible from North America.

Tetrads do seem to fall around times of momentous events that are difficult for Jews, and sometimes Christians, but seem to always bring about a better situation after an initial struggle.

In the next blog we will cover historical significances of the past seven tetrads for Jews and Christians, including some new data and understandings that have not been covered by elsewhere by others.

Vote Your Conscience!

November 6th, 2012 by Admin | No Comments | Filed in Inspirational Stuff

Although the Constitution of the United States of America grants citizens who meet specific provisions, such as age, the right to vote, we uphold and keep that right only by exercising it. A country is a collective of individuals. The right to vote is the muscular structure.

It is use it or lose it. A democracy where no one votes, or where the is only one official way a person is allowed to vote is a dictatorship.
There always are and always will be people in every country who want more power, and will use whatever means, including dishonesty, fraud, bribery and bullying, both verbal and physical to gain unmerited power over others. In a democracy, it is not just up to the government to stop this unacceptable behavior, it is up to the citizens to elect government representatives who will act upon the wishes of their constituency, which means the people who elect them.
On this election day, I urge you to vote your conscience, not your personal interests. While it may seem that I am promoting one candidate over another by that statement, I always make that statement, and vote that way. Most importantly I urge you to vote that way, independently in all primaries and for every single elected position, whether it is for national, state, city or village representatives.  I vote for the person, not the party.

I also vote for the most honest politicians. The ones most likely to tell me the truth — based on their past performance. I have even voted for candidates I basically disagreed with, because the candidates who had the platform I approved of, wre liars, and I figured at least I would know what I was getting. Also, look at the person’s record. Not promises, but what in life they have actually done to help the USA via any offices or volunteer activities. Is the person who is running going
to help their cronies and pals (based upon their record) or will they work to help all citizens?

Abortion vs. Thou Shalt Not Steal and Corruption

The USA (home of my citizenship) is one of the most religious countries on earth and certainly one of the most Christian, plus it has the largest Jewish population outside of Israel.  While principles of fairness and equality are also mentioned and a strong part of other religions, it is  a great issue, and commanded many times in the Bible, including in the Ten Commandments (Exodus 20).  Fair weights and measures, paying honest wages, taking care of the poor and needy, treating others with respect are commanded again and again in both testaments.  While I am personally against abortion and have advised womenn who sought my help against taking such a step, the fact is that abortion is not specifically mentioned anywhere in the Bible, in either testament. And, for sure, they knew how to abort a fetus at least in the time of Jesus since they knew how to deliver a baby via C-setion. Julius Caesar was delivers this way. Early stage abortion,
where the infant cannot yet breathe on its own (or cannot be saved by a neonatal unit in our times) is not infanticide, and hence not murder according to the Bible. The only commandment that possibly pertains to abortion is the one in Genesis where Adam and Eve are instructed to “Be fruitfukl and multiply”. Anyone who tries to tell you that the USA is recieving the wrath of the Lord based upon Roe v. Wade does not know the Bible or is outright lying to you. [And, again, I am staunchly personally against abortion except where the mother’s life is endangered, and will always counsel against it for many reasons.]

However, again what is mentioned in the Bible, again and again, especially if one wants material blessings, is honest dealings and giving to the poor and needy. I believe that powerful interests, monied and big business interests (but certainly not all big businesses!) are promoting and profiting from the abortion issue. It takes voters’ attention away from making the USA the an honest, upright, fair dealing and generous country, a nation of laws that are equal for all.  Focusing our attention on women’s  bodies and not on being a nation of honest dealings is good business for certain important interests that is strongly promoted by lobbyists and corrupt interests to divert and mislead those who truly seek to do what is right.

Dollar Bill Washington says: "VOTE" by Judy Rey Wasserman

 

 VOTE 2010 by Judy ReyWasserman

Strokes of both the Essence Portrait of George Washington and also the dollar bill are the original
Torah font letters of Exodus 10, the Ten Commandments.
 A fine art archival print of the above basic Essence Portrait of George Washington is available.
There is one commandment about murder and two (2!)about stealing and coveting (which leads to schemes to defraud and ill gotten gain). Leviticus is filled with many stern and specific commandments and warnings about stealing, fraud, treating one’sservants (employees) fairly, fair weights and measures, telling the truth, etc., plus of course, charity and kindness. In the New Testament beatitude in Matthew 5:6, sums this up, “Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled.”

So vote  and vote your conscience. Be filled.

Seeing Water’s Meaning in the Bible via Art

July 18th, 2012 by Admin | No Comments | Filed in Inspirational Stuff

In the Bible, water, which is the word mayim in Hebrew, represents Torah (also known as the Pentateuch), the written Word. It can also be considered that water can symbolically represent the written Word, known as the Logos by Christians throughout the whole Bible.

Thus when the tribes of Israel cross over the Red Sea into the Sinai desert, the story also indicates that the Word parted, creating a safe path, which next floods in and engulfs and drowns the non-believing Egyptians who pursued the newly freed slaves.This is a extremely significant metaphor as Moses is credited with writing the first five books of the Bible.

The Dock Less Traveled

By Judy Rey Wasserman

To see a larger version of the image (where you can see the strokes!) and discover more about the investment quality limited edition print’s availability click: HERE

So while the Bible begins with the story of Genesis, the written Word in fact begin in the Sinai desert after Moses and the Hebrew people cross the Red Sea .

For Christians, when Jesus walks upon the water reaching the boat carrying his disciples, the visual metaphor show that Jesus is standing on the written Word. As learned Jews every disciple, and many of the followers knew that.

Whenever I paint water, I always and only use the letters of the texts from the first five books of the Bible for the strokes.

In the Dock Less Traveled, the water, as well as the dock and sky are all painted with strokes that are the Torah font letters of Genesis 1-2:7.

In Southampton , NY , where I live, we have many private docks, built over the ocean, bays and lakes. Some of the docks are long, some are shorter. There is no standard dock; each is unique. The poetic imagery of this that each of us has a unique personal walk with The Divine over the Word.

We can walk as far as the end of the dock, or use the dock to gain access to a boat that can take us far out into the waters, or we can jump off the dock and swim in the water.

When you look at the image of the Dock Less Traveled imagine yourself at the moment of stepping onto the dock. You are surrounded by the word. Everywhere you look or step is created by the Word and embodies it.

Valley of the 23rd Psalm

December 6th, 2011 by Admin | No Comments | Filed in Brain & Perception, Inspirational Stuff

Today more than ever as a society and as individual we need to have and share a vision of hope and truth.

Back in 2007, when many of the ideas in this blog were originally posted, I was thinking about time in my life, and in the lives people I’ve known, when we individually dealt with the loss of a loved one, sickness and financial hardships.  Today, we share in a recession including the many layoffs and unemployment, the foreclosures and the financial problems that are now also faced by a great deal of the world.

In the 23rd Psalm, the words translated as, “As I walk through valley of the shadow of death” can and is also translated as, “As I walk through the valley overshadowed by death.”

This may seem a slight distinction, but to me, the overshadowing of a valley seems darker than “the shadow of death.” That overshadowing seems total. Darker. Plus, the image evoked is more real.

Yet the description is of a shadow, a kind of darkness that can actually touch and “cover” us, as shadows do, but is not really a part of us. We can step out of a shadow.

Apparently there is another Hebrew version of the text, which translates as: “the valley of deepest darkness.” This seems worse yet, as it would be the darkest.

There are times in life where we feel that we are going through a valley of deepest darkness. When it is difficult to even marshal up any hope for the future, no less find some good in the current moment. For me, these were the times when I have also felt very alone and diminished in some way,  such as by the loss of someone very close to me.

There is always some light that may seem hidden but that can be revealed in any darkness that is either perceived with the eyes or the soul.  That physical light can be detected by instruments, and you can also easily learn to see more of it.  For many people, this special physical light is symbolic of the very words and ongoing presence of The Divine.

The theory of Post Conceptual UnGraven Image art grew out of Judeo-Christian theology that begins with Genesis 1:3, “Let there be light.” Light is vital to our universe and without it there would be no colors, paintings or art. For Jews and Christians without the words of The Divine there would be no world.

The symbolism of the dark valley of the Psalm 23, suggests Genesis Chapter 1, when “darkness was on the face of the deep.”

Prior to the portion about the valley, the psalmist wrote that “He leads me in paths of righteousness from the sake of His name [or His name’s sake].’ Following entering the dark valley the psalm continues, “I shall fear no evil, for Thou [The Lord] art with me.”

Back in January 2007, I was reading about studies of famous creative by neurological scientists. One dealt with how music affects our brains. Another study is researching a finding that the creative visual place in the human brain is close or coincides with the area that also deals with insanity.

For me, insanity would be the darkest place and we all — to some degree — deal with our own neurosis or illogical fears and concerns. Coping with the discomfort of believing lies (denial), unwanted emotions and fears leads to behavior that is out of control. A severe amount of this would be catatonia while the mild everyday –I can-cope-with-it variety leads all manner of behaviors that we resolve change repair every New Year.

It struck me as amazingly “coincidental” that the brain area that deals with area is near or coincides with the creatively visual area.

Ninty percent of (90%) of vision happens in the brain as it decodes impressions of light sent by the eyes. To see is to discern darkness from light. That kind of decoding (discernment) also occurs when we have a sudden inspiration or understanding and “see the light”. Think of all the cartoons that indicate the character getting an idea through the now universally understood symbol of a bright light bulb by the cartoon character’s head.

Inspiration, a new idea of vision can be understood as:  light suddenly coming out of darkness.

Of course, that was before I realized in the spring of 2008 that when one sees enough (enough varies for individuals) of my artwork, one gains Awakened Vision thanks to the memories of that art, which the brain uses to decode more visual information. People who have gained Awakened Vision experience seeing more.

When we do not turn towards The Divine and follow our inspiration, our unique revealed path before us, we will inevitably go in a different direction. We stray, even for the moment, when we allow negative emotions to control us  saying a few “deserved” but demeaning harsh words (which will make us feel better somehow) or tell a small, seemingly harmless white lie so our lives will be more convenient or acceptable to others, or pretend that a situation that we do not like does not exist, we turn away from what we know is true.

Instead, sometimes simply trudging along in the valley of deepest darkness, even somewhat blindly, serves to take us to a new place of inspiration where suddenly a “feast” is found, our cup runs, which moves us toward the fulfillment of our greatest needs and hopes. We see light come out of darkness.

Two watercolor pencil paintings, Psalm 23 (Male Cardinal and Psalm 23 (Female Cardinal) are created using strokes that are the original Torah font letters of Psalm 23.  They are separate works but also form a set of two cardinals in at the time of a winter sunset. Male cardinal
Psalm 23 (Male Cardinal

They were the first paintings after the tsunami, when coincidentally my area was engulfed by a blizzard.

The wild animals of the tsunami almost all “knew” to head for high ground just as the wild creatures in my area, where forage is otherwise generally plentiful managed to find food and shelter when a blizzard simultaneously hit my area and the snow was a foot and a half deep.Thus these bird paintings began my painting series entitled, Written on the Wind.

Like the sheep in Psalm 23, the cardinals outside my window somehow managed to find food and shelter, after also somehow remaining safe during the blizzard.  As I listened to the tsunami reports and watched the birds outside my window, it was clear that they “saw” and followed the prodding of some divine staff and rod that despite dire circumstances kept them safe.

According to the Psalmist, even in deepest darkness the Lord is with us. I paint using the Hebrew letters from original Bible texts to represent the smallest essential pre-particles (also known as strings and membranes). This is basic Judeo-Christian theology applied to fine art.

As we learn to actually see more, what is called Awakened Vision, we become more aware of the energy, which for many are (or symbolize) the words of The Divine.  If we can remember and even picture the very Words of the Lord surrounding when we are in a time of a dark valley, then we can know that we are loved and not alone.

In the darkest times we can “see” our next step if we can envision that we are surrounded by the very words and promises of the Lord. All we need to do is ask for and take one small step forward with The Divine and we will “fear no evil for thou art with me.”

Woman of Valor Rosebud – Proverbs 31: 10-31

April 29th, 2011 by Admin | No Comments | Filed in Inspirational Stuff

The Woman of Valor Rosebud – Red is art that celebrates the special women in our lives. Each and every stroke that creates the image is created with a letter from the original Hebrew text of Proverbs 31: 10-31.

A red rose is a meaningful universal symbol for love. They also stand for respect and courage. Red rosebuds mean pure and lovely. These understandings of feminine virtue are found in Proverbs 31:10-31, which is also known as the Bible’s Woman of Valor.

Traditionally Jewish men read this scripture passage to their wives of the Sabbath as a tribute. It is also a custom to bring flowers to the wife or any home that one visits for the Friday evening meal. This ancient custom continues to this day.

Rosebuds symbolize beauty, youth and an innocent heart.

A single rose stands for simplicity.

:The wilderness and the solitary place shall be glad for them; and the desert shall rejoice, and blossom as the rose.” –Isaiah 35:1

Woman of Valor- Proverbs 31 Rose

Woman of Valor Rosebud – Red

By Judy Rey Wasserman

There is nothing more difficult for a truly creative painter than to paint a rose, because before he can do so he has first to forget all the roses that were ever painted. — Henri Matisse

Below is a close up of a detail of the artwork so that you can see that each and every letter, which may overlap and be placed this way and that, is always an original Torah font letter of the scripture text of Woman of Valor.

A fine art archival print of this unique Post Conceptual and UnGraven Image artwork is makes a special gift for a beloved woman, including wives, mothers, girlfriends, sisters, daughters, grandmothers, teachers, and best friends. This is also a beautiful gift for the bar mitzvah girl, sweet sixteen, bride to be, expectant mother and bridesmaids.

Unlike a bouquet of live flowers or fruit, this is art she can cherish throughout her lifetime.

New Easy Way to Share the Bible Without Saying a Word

December 10th, 2010 by Admin | No Comments | Filed in Inspirational Stuff

The branch of Post Conceptual Art known as UnGraven Image offers anyone the opportunity to share and display Bible text(s) openly, anywhere. This is because the images are secular.

What makes these works religious and special is that the strokes that form the art are symbols from Bible texts. However, the strokes are used just like traditional strokes, one over the other, interwoven, and glazed. This means the letters and words are generally unseen or distinguishable. Unlike Conceptual Word Art the strokes cannot be read. Yet we know the words of The Divine are present in the artwork, just as we know that there are pre-particles and waves, particles, atoms and molecules that are the scientific basis for the physical universe that we see.

Like the tiny essences of the universe, the pre-matter and waves that elementary physics’ calls strings, the strokes interweave, join together and form the visual universe of the image. According to basic theology held by all branches and denominations of Christians and Jews, plus as mentioned in the Koran, when the Creator speaks the physical universe into existence the letters of those spokes words were and are the essences of the physical universe.

“And God said, ‘Let there be light.’”— Genesis 1:3

Founded by artist Judy Rey Wasserman, Post Conceptual Art uses symbols for each and every stroke. The branch of UnGraven Image uses original letters from Bible texts for the strokes in artworks. The meaning of the artwork is inherent in the strokes, not the narrative image the strokes produce.

Share the Bible Anywhere with anyone – Legally via 21 st Century Post Conceptual Art

Post Conceptual Art, especially through the branch known as UnGraven Image allows to you to show your patriotism with a fine art print of President George Washington.

The strokes of this artwork are the original letters of Exodus 20, the Ten Commandments. As the first President of the United States it was George Washington’s job to administer and safeguard the laws of the nation , including the constitution. It is widely held that much of the laws of the Constitution were based on the Ten Commandments, especially the understanding that the laws pertained to all people alike.

Want to bring the Bible into your office or waiting room without offending non-believer customers?

Show your love of nature with these prints of cardinals, male and female, which are each created with the original letters of Psalm 23, The Lord is My Shepherd.

While here and there one of the Torah (Bible) font letters from the original texts (not translations versions) peeks out, unless you explain the deeper basis and meaning of the artwork no one will know. Yet, you can feel the intrinsic energy that emanates from the artwork.

“My Word will not return unto me void.” — Isaiah 55:11

The beauty of Landscapes in Sunsets and Seasons of Trees

Scientific studies have shown that when people are shown images of nature, or allowed to take a brief walk in nature (such as a park) they come back more refreshed and perform better at tasks that people who see cityscapes or other images during their break.

Therefore the landscapes are especially helpful when displayed in offices and places of study. You are not only bringing the power of the Bible text(s) into the room, but looking at the images is reviving and uplifting. Of course, unless you explain the significance of the strokes, no one will know the “secret” intrinsic Bible meaning of the works. You can display these works anywhere with pride.

In the Seasons of Trees series show below the strokes are from Deuteronomy 6.

“To everything there is a season and a time for every purpose under heaven.”– Ecclesiastes 3:1

Bring the Bible Home via Sunsets, which are Always a Promise of a New Beginning

“Through wisdom is an house builded; and by understanding it is established:” —
Proverbs 24:3

In Genesis it is repeatedly established that the new day begins at sunset, which commences a time for pause before the next events of creation. A sunset can be understood as both a celebration of the events of the past day and an inspection — a kind of AhHa moment — that needs to be reflected upon before new activity begins.
