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.

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.

Easy does It, Florida Art, palms, turtle, gator



"Easy Does It"

Love the little turtle on the trunk of the closer palm and the birds in the dead tree. I was inspired to paint this while out on a fishing trip.  It is cool how the palms grow upward after being blown down in a storm. Cycles of life are so fragile, and so evident.

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.

Cypress Shores 2, original landscape with egret, impressionism


"Cypress Shores 2"
© Fawn McNeill 2010

Created this from photos I took on the boat.  Robert and I went on a fishing trip down the rim canal near J & S fishing camp. Exaggerated the brush strokes to make it more impressionistic, really love that style.  I just framed this one in a custom made, hand painted frame (see below).

Enjoy!

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

Breezy Evening, Florida art, palms and sunset


"Breezy Evening"
original demo

This demonstration painting is a take off of "Breezy Morning."  Changed the colors, reversed the composition, added some palm trees, and also formatted it vertical instead of horizontal.  This is a great example of how you can jazz up those photos that didn't turn out so great.  Add dark shadows and strong highlights for more contrast and change some things to strengthen the composition.  

I may still add some birds . . .  

Ready to frame.

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.

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.

Rollin Through, mountain landscape with barn


"Rollin' Through"

Originally a demonstration painting for my adult class, but I changed it quite a bit when I started adding details.  Got caught up in some good memories of a place I saw in the mountains near my grandmother's house.  My friends and I rode horses in the Rockies, and this looks a lot like one of the driveways we passed on the way. I remember watching the clouds move up along the sides of the mountain and thinking how cool that looked!

Enjoy!

Ready to frame.

Paradise at Sunset, Florida landscape with wildlife

"Paradise at Sunset"

This painting is the second in a series I started this summer.  I created them both from memory.  The animals are free-handed onto the canvas after I practice drawing them on paper first.  This time I reversed things and brightened the sky. Also included deer, egrets, turkey, hogs, and a gator. This is a truly original painting.  Most of mine are (unless I am doing one for a client that wants something from their photos).  I use my own images and /or my own sketches and free-hand everything.  Many artists today copy from photos, literally.  They get enlargements trace it off -- and sometimes it is not even their own photos!  You can read more about that by clicking here.

Past the Boardwalk, stormy beach scene


"Past the Boardwalk"

Went back and made some corrections on this older painting. The sand had too much texture and too many foot prints, which was more realistic, but less pleasing to the eye.  I simplified it and brought the weeds growing down into the path.  I also worked on the clouds.
