"The Still Small Voice" ~ 10/30/07 A Painting a Day by Connie Tom


Collection of Tom DiMartino ~ Buffalo, NY

"The Still Small Voice" was another intense study I did of Hudson River Master Frederick E. Church. The wilderness is a place for solitude and quiet contemplation. The Boston Evening Transcript published this in Church's day:
Solitude reigns over the scene, and as the eye ever turns away
from the wilderness below to gaze upon the brilliant canopy of the sky,
the imagination whispers that he who was once
'led up of the spirit into the wilderness to be tempted,
must often at the twilight hour have turned his gaze
from the gloom and loneliness of the forest
to the brightness and beauty of those heavens
which to his vision of faith were ever opened,
revealing the 'Father of Lights'.

Beautiful color contrasts ! I love the title.

Thank you Annie. I'm glad you like the painting. The title was derived from the Bible where it talks about the voice of God not in the whirlwind, but in the still small voice.
