Painting Of Prophet And His Muses Finished

Rand Swift in keeping with his theme of 'Prolific Arts' has just completed a new acrylic painting. The majority of his work was done with Daniel Smith acrylic paints where Rand is currently (at the time of this release) employed as a concierge artist service representative.

The painting is inspired by a photo Rand took one day, then combined with other images and experiences from deep times of prayer and meditation with the Spirit of God. Rand finds in times of prayer one can travel, transcending time and space and any and all barriers, going wherever it is the Spirit of God wishes to take you, sometimes the past, somtimes the future and sometimes to see secrets taking place within the present. "There are no barriers with God", Rand explains.

This is why the title of the painting is 'The Journey of The Prophets Transcends Time and Space'. The three virgins in the painting represent the three great powers God has established in the universe, Faith, Hope and Love and...

Painting In Process By Rand

Rand has produced a short video on a painting he currently has in process. The painting titled (currently) 'The Jurney of the Prophets Transcends Time and Space' speaks to the journey and joy of the prophets in the capacity to transcend time and space as they venture by invitation out into the vast mind of God. God being unbound by either time or space invites certain people to traffic with Him in the secrets and mysteries of His infinite knowledge. Other people with other divine callings get to do other things. mThis is a small attempt to depict this truth. It is in process with many things yet to be completed - like some clothes for the woman representing faith.

Here is the link to the short video: http://youtu.be/YGk_csTwrWo

Shoeless Joe Jackson

Shoeless Joe Jackson

In tribute to baseball legend Shoeless Joe Jackson, Rand Swift has released his latest work done in Daniel Smith lightfast Walnut Ink and water color pencil featuring Shoeless Joe.

Shoeless Joe Jackson was allegedly part of the gambling conspiracy to throw the 1919 World Series. Later it was proven Joe was not part of the conspiracy, yet the damage was done and Kennisaw Mountain Landis, the newly appointed and first commissioner of Baseball banned Joe Jackson and the others for life from ever playing Major League Baseball.

This injustice has never been corrected. The work by Rand is a call for baseball to remember. During that series Shoeless Joe batted .375 and played flawless in the field. No evidence was ever brought against him to prove he was indeed part of the conspiracy. Other player admitted they had to have a great player like Joe named in the group to get the others to go along with it.

Rand encourages eveyone to research the story for themselves...
