Raging Again: revisiting Psalm 2

This work in progress is my newest painting inspired by Psalm 2

“Why do the nations rage…”

psalm 2

It is the neatest flag painting I’ve done. Previous flags were much more spontaneous, with less concern for straight lines (in other words messier).

On several of the small stars on the lower left, I have pasted portions of news clippings, each with one word highlighted. The words together read “Why do the nations rage against the Lord and His Christ” – an abbreviation of the first lines of Psalm 2.

My earlier flags:


Why do the nations rage

Each flag references the Australian flag, the union flag and the stars and stripes.
