Mural, completed






















The right side of the mural is finished. Here are some views of it. I blocked off the window and got some better photos this time.

The top photo is the left side. Added some more flowers and brightened up the lighting. Scroll down to see more.

I have run into problems with the priming of the next two murals. The paint is not adhering to the wall. I have to sand and re-prime the walls--very disheartening! I had already started major fill-ins!

Thanks for looking!

Enduring Love

"Enduring Love"
12 x 16 inches
Acrylic on canvas
(Ready to frame)

I worked on this painting all day. Wanted to make it realistic and yet surreal. Lots of symbolism:
The sunrise symbolizes the new covenant, no longer would animal sacrifice be required for sins and breaking laws. We are forgiven.
The dove symbolizes the fulfilled promise of Jesus, to send us a comforter. The Holy Spirit gives us understanding and power to live a Christian life. Can't live it and succeed with out him living in us and through us!
The crown of thorns is a reminder of the great suffering He endured for us so we can be blameless and find eternal life.
The flowers are called "lily of the valley" which has many different allegories. I was thinking about Christ being "the bright morning star and the lily of the valley." These lilies have healing qualities.
"Whoever is thirsty let him come; and whoever wishes, let him take the free gift of the water of life." Revelation 22:17

Rebekah's Beach

"Rebekah's Beach"
8x10 inches
Acrylic on hardboard

This is a rough draft for a mural I will be doing in Rebekah's room. We will add a volleyball net, and a ball on the beach. We may add more angels than the one in front of the sun, or we may move that one to another location. There will be more and/or larger flowers too. The birds may end up closer, or more of them. Her room is a beautiful aqua color, so this will go very nicely.

This painting is SOLD

Mural, right side in progress

Got a lot done, I should finish it this week. I have about 44 hours in it now. I will try to get better pictures all the way around when it is finished. between the glare of the windows and the shine of the paint, I am not doing so hot on photos. The house is still under construction which makes it great for not messing up floors or anything, but there is no electricity so I can't block off the windows to take the pictures! After the house is finished I will come back and get some photos for my portfolio.
I just love the way it it is coming along.

Mural in progress, horses, butterflies, angels and a bunny!


I moved the front legs farther to the left and made the neck a little shorter to give Rachel's horse better proportions. (See the image below for a comparison). I am close to getting the left side done. The sky goes across the top of the window, and the grass under the window is full of flowers and butterflies. Hard to get a good photo with the window glaring on the camera.



There is an angel in the sky above the oak tree, and a bunny in the grass, along with flowers and butterflies. Too cute! The edges will soften into the pink walls.

This is the first lay in. The colors are off a little and so are the proportions. There is an angel in the sky above the horse. Click on the image to see it closer.
This mural is 13 feet, not including the window!







This is the beginning of the right side. I think This is Rachel's Dad's horse. He is a buckskin.
I am enjoying this project. I go to the ranch house about three times a week all day. So my Daily Paintings are not getting done everyday for now. I will try to keep two or three new small works posted each week, so please keep checking back!
This is the first of 3 murals.

New Start, morning fog

"New Start"
8 x 10 inches
acrylic on canvas
Ready to frame

Went out to the ranch were I have been working on some murals, and the time change had me there at sunrise. It was amazing to see the mist and the sun coming through it. It was like being on another planet, or at least in another state! It was cold and breezy and there was patchy dense fog all around. So today I had to paint it!

Purple Passion, orchids, Daily Painting

"Purple Passion"
5 x 7 inches
Acrylic on canvas
NOT AVAILABLE

These orchids were in full bloom, so I set them in my studio and had fun doing this painting alla prima (all at once). I tried to capture the excitement with the busy background and then added the flowers quickly on the wet paint.
Enjoy!

J & S, plein air painting

"J and S"
8 x 10 inches
Acrylic on hardboard
(ready to frame)

Got to go out to J & S Fish Camp in the evening yesterday. The rim canal is off to the right and Lake Okeechobee is over the levee. I saw this little muddy path with the palms and thought how perfect of a composition that it would make! I used a simple palette with very few colors to give it more harmony.

Compliments, Abstract Art

"Compliments"
9 x 12 inches
Acrylic on hardboard
(Ready to frame)

This palette knife painting started as a color study of split compliments. Yellow, with blue violet and red violet. It quickly became an explosion of contrast and color! It reminds me of looking out through a glass window while it is raining. These are fun to do and you never know what you will get.
