Praise And Promise


Click Here To Buy it Now - $300, mixed media on stretched canvas and framed, 9x12 inches

I have been experimenting and having fun with mixed media using acrylics, inks, stamping and photos.  This piece is a combination of those elements, the photo of flowers was transferred to the canvas using matte medium and then inked and painted in areas.  A photo transfer is not merely glued to the surface but a method that transfers the image to the canvas and the paper is washed off.  I based this painting on two Bible scriptures; Praise, Isaiah 61:11 and Promise, Genesis 8:22.

I haven't posted anything new for so long due to a remodel going on at home but I have been creating more journal/scrapbooks, acrylic and mixed media paintings plus some plein air oil paintings.  More on plein air at a later date.

Due to the limitation and inconsistencies of various display monitors, the colors you see on your screen may not be a totally accurate reproduction of the actual painting but I work to get the best likeness possible.

Not For Sale - oil on gessobord, 6x6 inches

My Granddaughter was not posing for me this time, I noticed her curled up in the chair and knew it was a perfect natural pose.  I call her my favorite model because she is great to paint but the only time she sits still is when on her iPhone.  She is a creative social butterfly, I love painting and creating with her; one day she may be posting paintings of her own.  I'm so fortunate to share my love of the visual arts with her!
