Description The Spacious Firmament on high,With all the blue Ethereal Sky,And spangled Heav'ns, a Shining Frame,Their great Original proclaim:Th' unwearied Sun, from day to day,Does his Creator's Pow'r display,And publishes to every LandThe Work of an Almighty Hand.Soon as the Evening Shades prevail,The Moon takes up the wondrous Tale,And nightly to the list'ning EarthRepeats the Story of her Birth:Whilst all the Stars that round her burn,And all the Planets, in their turn,Confirm the Tidings as they rowl,And spread the Truth from Pole to Pole.What though, in solemn Silence, allMove round the dark terrestrial Ball?What tho' nor real Voice nor SoundAmid their radiant Orbs be found?In Reason's Ear they all rejoice,And utter forth a glorious Voice,For ever singing, as they shine,The Hand that made us is Divine.The Spacious Firmament on high by Joseph Addison

Jerry’s passion to create, breaks free from outside restrictions, his works vibrate with color and light, his subjects bursting with emotion and drama. Life is drama, and his portraits strive to represent the inner persona of an individual, sometimes fragmented and obscure, sometimes subdued or refined but always filled with emotion.
