A Crab's Life, rocks and waves, mixed media


"A Crabs Life"

This is a take off from a painting I did years ago at the Bathtub Beach in Stuart, Florida.  It is part of my new series of mixed media art.  I zoomed in and abstracted it a little compared to the first painting ("Rock and Roll").

I used the large aquarium stones this time, with beads that catch the light at different angles. I painted a little crab in the rocks, which was totally spontaneous.  It made me laugh when I put the red beads on him for eyes.

The splash was built up in layers of paint.  I used more gel medium this time instead of the thick heavy gesso because the gel medium dries clear.  It also dries shiny, which was good for sparkle on the water.

Art Show


Had a great show at the end of January! (Been so busy that I didn't get a chance to post it.)

Showed some of my new mixed-media series, and some of my older originals. I  had such a large variety going on that I didn't think I would be in the mix to win an award.  Often times judges like to see a coherent body of work.

I sold some art, won a blue ribbon, and shared my testimony to many who asked about the meaning behind the paintings.  It was an awesome day.

Thank you Lake Placid Art League!  It was encouraging to be so well received by so many people!


Here are some pictures, Enjoy! (Click on an image to enlarge it).

Spilling Over Again, abstract, mixed media


"Spilling Over Again"


This is a take off from an older abstract painting called "Spilling Over." It is part of a new series of mixed media paintings.  This one has aquarium stones, beads, and tiny pearls. 

I'm experimenting with adding found objects and/or impasto techniques (thick raised texture to paint over.) 

I did some of this in college, but that was a few years ago.... 

Starting small, and learning so much about gel medium, heavy gesso, and acrylic modeling paste!  Way too cool.

This one is framed in a black shadow box.

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!

On a personal level; I'm excited to partner with Lynne Barletta, and her Visionary School of Arts in their out reach:  Catch the Wave of Hope!

No More Tears, mountain path, angels, lake, fawn


"No more Tears"
© Fawn McNeill 2005


This is the last of my "drippy" series.  I did ten or so of these a few years ago. I like the contrast of the somewhat abstract background with realism added over the top.

It is symbolic on so many levels. 

The most obvious comes from a Bible verse (Rev 21:4) that says He (Jesus) will wipe the tears from our eyes in heaven.

The fawn is my name sake, so it represents me on a path to better things.  

The path is about choices and free will.  I have made my share of regretful journeys.

The drips and runs are all about tears and sorrow bringing about growth.  I poured my heart and my sorrows into this series for many months.  Then I got it all out and moved on!

The mountains represent the good things in life, and heading for higher places spiritually.  Better choices.

The angels in the mountains represent the spiritual battle.  One of the angels is praying, and one has a shield and sword.  They fight for us!

Using acrylics this thin jeopardizes the integrity and quality of the paint, so the finished painting must be sealed with at least 2 coats of acrylic sealer.  I prefer a semi-gloss, which I make by mixing two thirds gloss medium and varnish (Liquitex) with one third matte medium.  

 (I started a palette knife series with bold strong colors and thick textures after this painting.)

Quenching the Darts, Abstract, knife painting, faith and prayer


"Quenching the Darts" (Ephesians 6:16)
© Fawn McNeill 2008

Just made this palette knife painting available in prints and cards! 

This original knife painting was done alla prima (all in one session) which creates unique mixtures of color and thick texture.  Usually they are fun and exciting to create.  This one, however, came from frustration and cries for mercy.

I cried out to the Almighty as I struggled through marriage problems, (which we didn't know was due to my husband having hydrocephalus and a tumor in the back of his ear canal that was growing into his brain.)  Just a few months later he had the first of two brain surgeries, and he is doing well now.  We have overcome huge obstacles.  I am grateful for the lessons learned and the peace that the Lord gives even in the midst of the struggles.

Wipe Out, abstract waves, knife painting


"Wipe Out"

About This Painting:
This one is now available in greeting cards and prints!
Tried to capture the motion and curl of the surf up close.  Brings back good memories. The first time I swam in the ocean in Hawaii I was 13.  It messed me up as it tumbled me around!  I finally got the hang of it and learned to body surf.  Never did stand on a board though.

Florida Skies Too, abstract knife painting


"Florida Skies Too"
July 4th, 2011


About This Painting:
This is an older one from a few years ago.  Started going through my inventory and decided I would rather they go to good homes at lower prices than sit on my shelf!


When I created this one I revisited an older painting, completely changing it by using a knife. I really enjoy using such intense colors!

Enjoy!

Endless Joy, palette knife angel


"Endless Joy"

Took one of my abstracts and added this angel to it.  Love the way it came together!

This angel is for the kind of joy you can only find (even in hard times) when you lay down your plans and seek the Lord's.


Angels are not like humans and humans do not become angels (according the the holy scriptures).  The fallen angels are far out numbered, and we have been given power over them in Jesus name. So when we forgive and pray blessings on others and ourselves, our Father's angels battle for us, helping us overcome the trials and hardships that come against us.  They have been given charge over those who seek the Lord.

Passing Through, rainbow landscape, knife painting




"Passing Through"

The first one like this was on watercolor paper for my kid's summer art classes. The inspiration came from Van Gogh. It was done with a paint brush and didn't have much detail.  I liked the idea, however, and painted it again on hardboard with a palette knife.  Lots of fun!  Then some of my older students painted one like it with a palette knife too. I added the butterflies to finish it up.

Returning Thanks, wildlife art, blue heron

"RETURNING THANKS"

I did around ten of these runny and drippy paintings.  They are done with acrylics on canvas, at a standing easel, so all the paint runs down.  It's a messy and fast application of layers of paint. Then I add the details over that once it is dry, so the contrast of warm and cool colors is played up against the contrasting thin against thick paint.  It has to be sealed with a few coats of clear sealer because the integrity of the paint has been jeopardized.  

Just made this older painting available in prints and cards. You can order what ever size you want.

Sun Down, sunset seascape


"Sun Down"

Created this painting alla prima, or all in one session.  It was done from memory with a palette knife a few years ago.  This one has an abstract feel to it.  Wanted to capture the fleeting moments of the end of the day and the movement in the sky and water.  It really poured out of me. I love it when it flows like that.

ENJOY!

Abstact Hibiscus, exotic flower

"Abstract Hibiscus"


This was done alla prima (painted in one session). Lively impressionistic style. I like the distorted and abstract feeling it has. It is a take off of the first one I did called "Out Front" which is quite realistic. I wanted to capture the light dancing around the leaves this time. Very fun to paint the whole thing all at once, gives it the wet-in-wet look of an oil painting. Lots of thick brush strokes, nice texture.
