This image of Sebonac Road Genesis Sunset study is a view from just outside of the front of my home’s hedges. The sketch it is based upon was created about a month ago by me standing in the middle of Sebonac Road, in Southampton, NY, and moving when a car approached from either direction. After the summer ends, we do not get much traffic.
When the words, “Genesis” and “Sunset” appear in the title of any of my works, then all, or a major portion of the strokes are the original letters from Genesis 1-2:7. This also means that the artwork belongs in my Genesis Sunset series.
From where I stood in the road, my own mailbox and a walkway to my front door would be slightly behind the viewer’s right. Since my property is surrounded by high hedges I often step outside unto the road to gain a better view to the daily sunset. Some of the sunsets seen in my other paintings are based on photos of quick sketches I make from this vantage point. So when I was sketching, I was not concerned about what the neighbors might think of me hanging out in the middle of the road, because they have seen me there often at sunset, and most know I am an artist.
This study is postcard size.

Below is a closer look at some of the strokes, which are all Torah font Hebrew letters created with
If you are familiar with Hebrew letters, you may be able to spot some of the in the images above. What cannot be done is to read the scripture verses.
In UnGraven Image Art theory the letters are used as strokes the way traditionally trained artists use strokes. The strokes overlap, interweave and are also used like thin layers. The brushes that were filled with water, releasing the pigments of the watercolor pencils, wrote letters from the verses over the hand-drawn pencil strokes. All that is actually present are words of scripture — although those words do resemble a country road.
Theology held by ALL Jews and Christians, from every denomination, branch or sect holds that when the Creator speaks the universe into existence in the beginning of Genesis, the letters of those words are the basic essences of the universe. Elementary physicists now say that the essences of the universe are pre-particle “strings”. There are many amazing corollaries between the ancient theology and cutting edge physics.
