Timeless Moments, sunset beach, seashells


Timeless Moments
"His mercy endures forever." Psalm 136

Finished this painting a few months ago.  I haven't posted anything here in a long time (posting on my website and busy at work, which is a good thing).  

This painting is full of thick impasto layers. I also added actual seashells, sea glass, sand dollars, and two hand sculpted clay items (a turtle in the foam, and a starfish on the shore.)  The clay items are a new element. I truly enjoyed creating them and painting them after adhering them to the canvas.  I'm using paper clay, which is clay with paper fibers added to make it stronger.  It is a lightweight clay and is something I want to explore further.

I was going through some personal issues when I painted this and thought about how somethings seem to transcend time. Some memories are as fresh as yesterday even though they happened years ago! Some things can happen in no time and seem like forever.  This led to the concept that we make time, it is in us and not just something that happens to us.  We choose to enjoy it, use it wisely, or do nothing with it.  So all of that is  flowing through this painting as the woman contemplates the vastness of it all.

I hid an angel in the sky, but not in the clouds per say, it is in reverse. The blue of the sky is in the shape of an angel by the clouds around it.  Makes it harder to find, but I wanted to make it bigger than the small ones I usually paint in the clouds.

Broken Bricks Mural, ocean scene



I have been wanting to paint stones or bricks (or something) behind the stove for a few years now.  Once I got started it was really fun.  I decided to break the bricks open so I could look at more than just bricks on the wall while cooking...


My husband wanted birds, so I added the water and some birds!

 Hard to see the angels, but there are two angels in the clouds.  That was my favorite part.


I made the wall look like broken plaster around the bricks to tie it all together.  Just sealed it with two coats of clear sealer.

At Riverside, Egret, Palm, Indian River, Florida


"At Riverside"
(Stuart, Florida)
© 2018
Here is an older one I just love! Used some pictures I took during a paint-out at Riverside Park.  I walked all over the park for an hour in the morning, soaking in all the inspiring views before doing some sketches.

This egret was wading along the shore, and I got some pretty good photos of him catching fish.  I liked this one where he jumped up a few times.  

This palm tree was one of two jetting out over the water.  The other palm was bent and crooked, but it was hard to get a good photo.

Eternal Joy, angel, butterflies, mixed media painting


"Eternal Joy"

        This is inspired from a small painting I did years ago called "Endless Song".  This one is less abstract, and the colors are lighter.  I used thick gesso to build up the hair, wings, and plants for an impasto feel.  Also added beads to the headband and the belt, as well as on the gown.  The 3 metal butterflies were the most fun, because they fit so well with the colors I had already painted.  It is like a nice surprise when you see them. Adding a little iridescent paint on the wings, gown and above the head gives it a nice shimmer. When the painting is viewed at different angles, some things really catch your eye.
      Can't explain how tickled I was when I added the extras, I felt like a kid.  I played with  many combinations until finally I was satisfied with this layout.  The butterflies actually made me laugh!

Soul Searching, sunset, beach, Florida art


"Soul Searching"


This painting was done mostly from memory.  Added the lone woman on the beach to suggest times of reflection and questioning. She also implies the vastness of it all.  I actually saw a heart shaped cloud in the sky recently, so I added it to suggest the cool ways that Father God sends reminders of his love for us, especially when we are struggling.  Most of the time we miss it.  He sends so many people and remarkable things our way, so if we do ask, or search, we can find him.

Early Joy, sunrise seascape, inspirational art



"Early Joy"
10 x18 inches
Acrylic on canvas


Finished!   I had suggestions to add dolphins and angels..... decided not to add birds this time, as I didn't want to take away from the suggestion of an angel in the light source.

Yellow is symbolic of joy, and orange is warm and inviting.  Pinks and blues are calming and peaceful.  This painting goes out with prayers for emotional healing, restoration, and joy.

Enjoy!

Healed, inspirational art, beach, girl, angel


"Healed"

Started this painting completely from memory. Made it up as I went along.  (Used reference photos of different children to free-hand the girl onto the painting.) 

This is all about inner healing, accepting yourself, forgiving yourself, and letting go of the past.  But, sometimes we have to deal with the issues and do the hard work to get past it, which this painting really did for me as I struggled with my stormy past.

Lots of symbolism:  The shadow of the cross, the face of Jesus in the sand, a dove hidden in the wave near her head (for the Holy Spirit), an angel dancing in the clouds, the heart shape encircling her, and the storm moving away.

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.)

Angel lake, sunset


"Angel Lake"
Original demo © 2011

This painting started as a class demo.  Went back later and added stronger colors, and more detail along the shore line.  Added the angel in place of the sun. I also gave it more contrast by darkening the foreground tree.  

I'm posting it again, in honor of my Mother-in-law, Dorothy Barr, who just went to meet Jesus.  She was 98! I miss her.

Thanks for your time.

Waiting Orders, Warrior Angel

"Waiting Orders"

Just framed this one!  (See below).  This angel is painted with a brush instead of a knife.   Creates a more blended effect. Used a cool blue color scheme instead of the bold colors I often use with the palette knife. 

I wanted him to look like he was finished with one assignment and waiting for the next.  I have always thought that I must have some very serious warrior angels looking out for me! 


Acrylic on hardboard
6 x 6 inches
$250.00

This small painting is done on cradled hardboard, it is framed in an antique deep silver/gold frame. Ready to hang.  See below. Created in 2013

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.

Waiting Orders, guardian angel

"Waiting Orders"

Painted this angel with a brush instead of a palette knife this time.  Wanted a softer look.  Love the color scheme.

I wanted him to look like he was finished with one assignment and waiting for the next.  I have always thought that I must have some very serious warrior angels looking out for me! 

This small painting is done on cradled hardboard, the sides are painted, so framing is optional.

Eternal Love, angels at sunset, knife painting

"Eternal Love"

This is a custom order, taken from "Endless Love." This one was created with painting knives, while "Endless Love" was done with brushes on a smaller board. The knife gives it a more abstract look, as the blending technique isn't as soft. I like the energy the two angels seem to have between them.

Enjoy!
