Wood Carving

© 2012

This was the second painting, and first original work I did when I started  painting again in 2012. Aside from being my first original piece, it’s special to me because it is a “colorization” of a wood carving  my grandpa made.

I had ideas of doing a Bloom Series. Bloom #2 was the second piece, and my first “wordy” painting.  I wasn’t entirely happy with how the writing turned out though. The concept of the painting  however wouldn’t leave me. Bloom Where You’re Panted is my second attempt at it. I’m much happier with the results overall.

High Level Bridge

Acrylic on canvas ~ 11″ x 14″

The Viaduct, also known as the High Level Bridge, in Lethbridge, Alberta, Canada initially completed construction in 1909. It was a massive undertaking. One of the construction wonders of the world…it is the longest and highest bridge of its type.

New Creation

Acrylic on canvas ~ 14″ x 18″

This, and Love, I found to be the most technically challenging painting to date. I’m really happy with how everything came together in this and I love the misty-effect of the background.

The primary inspirations for the painting are Ephesians 2:10 and 2 Corinthians 5:17.

Love

Acrylic on canvas ~ 14″ x 18″

This was a rather intimidating piece to take on and the idea was stuck in my head for two years before I actually started painting. It speaks to so many things! Among them…

And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.

A Mountain And A Moment

Acrylic on canvas ~ 14″ x 18″

What can I say…I love the look of this painting! Somewhat surreal and hopeful.

The primary inspirations for the painting are Matthew 17:20/Luke 17:6 and the Jason Castro song, Only A Mountain.

Relax

Acrylic on canvas  ~  11″ x 14”

This was the final project for one of my children’s art classes. Kids figured they were finished before we did too much with highlights and shadows. I’m such a fan of water. Ocean, seas, lakes…love it all! Finished my sample up on my own.

I got these flowers from my husband and daughter a few years ago for Mother’s Day. Love tiger lilies and the bloom was so big and full and beautiful…thought it would make a great painting one day! Decided to take the picture before any more of the petals fell off and the flower died.  Now I have the lily.
