Summer's End 2

"Summer's End 2"
Acrylic on watercolor paper
9 x 12 inches

Just another painting lesson that I thought turned out nice, so I decided post it. These are fun, taken from how-to-paint books. I use them for a spring board with my students and then the elements are rearranged and the colors are changed.

New Fawn, wildlife art

"New Fawn"
9 x 12 inches
Acrylic on hardboard
(ready to frame)

I painted this from a photo that a friend of mine (Paul Miller) took of this 3 or 4 hour old fawn in his yard in Libby, Montana! Of course it is my name sake, so I couldn't resist painting it. I free handed the drawing in pencil, and then changed the colors a little to enhance the flowers she was trying to hide in.

I have started summer art camps, and here are a few of the paintings the kids have done. They range in age from 7 to 12 years old. We all started with the same picture, and then I encouraged them to be original and use different colors and move things around a bit. It is always fun to see their fresh new ideas!

Spring Buck, Montana Art

"Spring Buck"
8 x 10 inches
Acrylic on canvas


This is a little clearing I saw when I went for a walk a couple of weeks ago, in Libby, Montana. It was a crisp cold morning. The crab apple trees were blooming everywhere, along with wild flowers and dandelions. Too wonderful.
This is the third painting in my Montana series.




Thanks for looking!

Rock of Ages

"Rock of Ages"
8 x 10 inches
Acrylic on canvas
(ready to frame)
$700.00
This is the second of my Montana series. This is from a small pine tree I saw up near the Libby Dam. I am always amazed at how the trees grow right out of the rocks, and I love all the different colors that run through them.
I kept thinking of the parable that Jesus told of the house built on the sand compared to the one built on the rock. He was speaking of our lives being built on him as our foundation, He is the Rock we stand on, especially in tough times.

Schoolroom Mural







"Schoolroom Mural"
Acrylic


The orbs of light are in different locations on each photo I took, sometimes large and sometimes small. I have seen this before, in photos I have taken at church, so it thrills me to think the angels have been with us while we worked on this mural!


This is the mural that my students have been working on the past month or two. (Rebekah is 13 and Rachel is 8.) Luke, who is 3 years old, painted the little yellow flower off to the right of the tree while I guided his hand. This mural is in the home school room/ play room. While I have been painting murals on their bedroom walls, the kids have been coming out for a couple of hours once or twice a week. I have enjoyed this project tremendously.
They came up with the ideas, and the colors! Some of the apples have family member's names on them-- creating a very unique family tree. I have been helping them when things get a little too far off, and to clean up any mistakes. Don't you think they have done a great job making this room so colorful?
