Simple Faith, Wildlife Art by Fawn

"Simple Faith"
24 x 30 inches
Acrylic on canvas


The painting was created in 2003 as part of a series. I began with thin washes of paint on a canvas. Then the great blue heron was added in thick opaque paint. I like the abstract feel of the background against the detail and realism of the heron. The whole painting is then sealed.

The drips and runs are symbolic of tears and sorrow. The heron is symbolic for rising above the rough times and trusting God to see you through it all. He promises to use trials for our ultimate good.
