Hey guys :-)
First, I apologize if this has been discussed before. I tried the search function to see if I could find one, but either my terms weren't sufficient, or I didn't search through the results thoroughly enough.
Second, one of my God-given talents is the ability to paint/draw to some degree.
So, my question is this: given that God commanded against the creation of graven images for the purpose of worship, what do you guys think about creating artwork that represents the Lord, Jesus Christ? I ask, because I have a desire to paint something that illustrates what John saw as he wrote down in Revelation about the glorified Christ. The image presented on the page inspired me, but I have been hesitating because I do not want to do anything to promote or support idolatry. I simply have the desire to glorify God in any way that I can, with what He gave me. Am I making sense? Let me know if I need to clarify.
