Walking Toward The Light

The fact that God is light sets up a natural contrast with darkness. If light is a metaphor for righteousness and goodness, then darkness signifies evil and sin. First John 1:6 says that “if we claim to have fellowship with him and yet walk in the darkness, we lie and do not live out the truth.” Verse 5 says, “God is light; in him there is no darkness at all.” Note that we are not told that God is a light but that He is light. Light is part of His essence, as is love (1 John 4:8).The message is that God is completely, unreservedly, absolutely holy, with no admixture of sin, no taint of iniquity, and no hint of injustice.

A few years ago, when Mr. Shields turned 70, the ole girl was taken out of the barn and put back on the road, where she belongs. The drive train was modernized so she was easier to drive; oth

Sunday Morning In Nashville

"Sunday Morning In Nashville", Oil on Canvas, 28" x 40", 2018 Again I chose to paint my favorite city and a section of its skyline. I know it may sound strange, but it's the quiet time in Nashville that I love the best. It's seeing the people of this beautiful city in an unhurried peaceful Sunday morning that interests me the most. The scene I painted here is near the Schermerhorn Symphony Center. It's also the sixth time I've painted this area of the city. Eric Buechel Fine Art/ The Bee Hive Atelier P.O. Box 277 Pleasant Hill Tennessee 38578 (931) 881-7806 www.ericbuechel.net Home Page
