In the Morning, Lake Okeechobee


"In The Morning"  © 2007 
Acrylic   12 x 16
Sold

Had a request for paintings of  Lake Okeechobee.  I have done a lot of them, but it has been a while.  This one is probably my favorite of all of the lake paintings I have done over the past 30 years.  Hard to believe I have been here that many years! (I moved 15 times as a child and 5 times as a young adult.)  I guess I wanted to settle down, ha ha ha! 

As I painted it, I was singing a song that has this verse in it: "Oh Lord in the morning will I direct my prayer unto thee and will look up . . ." Psalm 5:3

Easy does It, Florida Art, palms, turtle, gator



"Easy Does It"

Love the little turtle on the trunk of the closer palm and the birds in the dead tree. I was inspired to paint this while out on a fishing trip.  It is cool how the palms grow upward after being blown down in a storm. Cycles of life are so fragile, and so evident.

Enjoy!

Winter Marsh, Florida landscape with egrets


"Winter Marsh"

This is an old favorite.  Something about it speaks to me.  Florida winters give way to some fall colors, and the memory of this day is windy and cold.  Well, cold for us is in the 40's, but still, it is a nice change from the normal humid air.  I also like the way the birds are flying out of the picture, you get the sense that they will be gone in a moment.

Great Egret, knife painting


Great Egret,  class demo
9 x 12 inches, acrylic knife painting.
(Not Available)


Donated this painting for one of our raffles for the 
Top of the Lake Art Fest,
 as part of a fund raiser for Okeechobee Main Street, 
who puts on the show every year.

This demo painting for my adult class did not start as a knife painting.  We used brushes as I demonstrated each step.  Then I added more detail to finish it up later and got carried away with the thick chunky paint (using a palette knife) for the bark on the tree.  Did more knife work to the rest of the painting also.  But I used a brush for the soft feathers of the egret, and the flowers.  Love the contrast of the thick and thin applications of paint.

Congrats to Gloria Pitsch for winning this painting!

Healed, inspirational art, beach, girl, angel


"Healed"

Started this painting completely from memory. Made it up as I went along.  (Used reference photos of different children to free-hand the girl onto the painting.) 

This is all about inner healing, accepting yourself, forgiving yourself, and letting go of the past.  But, sometimes we have to deal with the issues and do the hard work to get past it, which this painting really did for me as I struggled with my stormy past.

Lots of symbolism:  The shadow of the cross, the face of Jesus in the sand, a dove hidden in the wave near her head (for the Holy Spirit), an angel dancing in the clouds, the heart shape encircling her, and the storm moving away.

Kitty Cat, class demo, pets


"Kitty Cat"
(original class demo)

This was a fun example for my kid's class.  Students did a realistic drawing of an animal up close (free hand): bunnies, cats, puppies, birds, lion cub, fox, etc... Then we transferred it to watercolor paper drawing very lightly with pencil.   We used pen and ink to exaggerate the details before adding fun and/or strange colors with watercolors!  They turned out great!

I have a show coming up Saturday the 28th of January in Sebring, Florida. I'll be indoors at the agricultural center on Hwy 27, south of town.  It is sponsored by the Lake Placid Art league.  Hope you will come see me!  I'll have some reduced prices and they give away door prizes from the artists every thirty minutes!

Fond Memories, horses, mountain landscape


"Fond Memories"
18 x 24 inches
Acrylic on canvas

Just updated this image for prints and gifts!

Made most of this painting from memory. Actually I created it from a few different memories of my summers in Montana, and I also combined different horses.  I put the Swede mountain range in the distance, but used the gorge from  Libby Creek to set it all off.  I made the stream bigger than I remember it too.   I added less mud and more water to clean it up.

Jesus Christmas, snow, Christmas tree, watercolor

"Jesus Christmas"
© Fawn McNeill 2016


Merry Christmas!

Just a little mixed media watercolor I did for fun.  Drew it in pencil, then painted the colors, added some salt for the cool effects in the sky. I used extra fine sharpies for the words, after the painting dried of course!

Enjoy!

King of the Hill, winter sunrise


"King of the Hill"
© Fawn McNeill 2008



This little original painting was a study on complementary colors. I  used Ultramarine Blue, and Cadmium Orange (the complement or contrast to blue), and White. The white and orange make a nice peach glow, and the light blues set it off. The dark blackish colors were made by mixing orange and blue with no white. (For gray hues, add white). Amazing to see the variety of colors created with this limited palette.  

Thought maybe I should add angels, or splatter for falling snow.  What do you think?

Enjoy!
