I Am, true immortal, Jesus


"I Am"
20 x 24 inches
Acrylic on canvas

By far the Most challenging thing I have ever painted.  More than a year of work, and many tears went into this painting.

I kept thinking about the focus of Halloween: fear, death, blood, the un-dead, etc....  I thought about the one who brings love, life, forgiveness, joy, and restoration.  I'm not talking about religion or rules or tradition.  I'm talking about the man who gave us two commandments: Love God Almighty with all your mind, heart and soul, and love your neighbor as yourself.  So I wanted the focus to be on him!

"Very Truly I tell you," Jesus answered, "before Abraham was born, I Am!"  John 8:58

Rough Water, Pelican, Wildlife, realism




"Rough Water (Pelican)"
©FawnMcNeill 2004
11 x 14 inches
Acrylic on hardboard
SOLD

I created this painting quite a few years ago-- from some photos I took at the Fort Pierce inlet. It began as a palette knife painting. But then I got into the brush work applied over the cool textures that the knife made. I love the hard rocks against the feathers, and all of that against the moving water. Nice contrasts. Added lots of details.

Flame Tree demo, Florida art by Fawn

I have several variations of this beautiful tree!  I have many photos I have taken of these trees over the years and love to paint them! This painting was started during class (with my students) and finished up later.  If you are interested in something similar, please let me know!

I use professional grade paints, quality canvas, primed hardboards, and/or acid free papers. My original works are truly original, created from my own photos, sketches, or life studies. These images can not be used without express written permission.  

(My Demo paintings are usually original: using my own sketches or photos, or photos my students bring in for that class. Occasionally they are created from an art book or calendar image.  Some of the materials used when creating demos are student grade. For example: the less expensive paints may fade in time, and a canvas panel is not the same quality as stretched canvas or hardboard.  This is why I price the demos at lower values.)
