The Tree of Life – Revelation 22
By Rebecca Jean
(Medium: Watercolor and Ink)
Today’s art is a response to Revelation 22:
Then the angel showed me the river of the water of life, bright as crystal, flowing from the throne of God and of the Lamb through the middle of the street of the city; also, on either side of the river, the tree of life with its twelve kinds of fruit, yielding its fruit each month. The leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations. No longer will there be anything accursed, but the throne of God and of the Lamb will be in it, and his servants will worship him. They will see his face, and his name will be on their foreheads. And night will be no more. They will need no light of lamp or sun, for the Lord God will be their light, and they will reign forever and ever.
And he said to me, “These words are trustworthy and true. And the Lord, the God of the spirits of the prophets, has sent his angel to show his servants what must soon take place.” (Revelation 22:1-6, ESV)
Rebecca’s drippy oils and splashy watercolors have been collected by patrons across the United States and Canada. After a number of valuable creative stints—working at an illustration agency in Chicago, illustrating books for trade and educational publishers, and painting for a nationally renowned still-life artist as his personal studio assistant—Rebecca now devotes serious time and attention to her own paintings, selling her work at shows, festivals and to private collectors. Passionate about creative entrepreneurship, she works in a studio in downtown Atlanta where she paints and studies business through an art coaching program. To see her work, please visit RJean.net.
