Fond Memories, horses, mountain landscape


"Fond Memories"
18 x 24 inches
Acrylic on canvas

Just updated this image for prints and gifts!

Made most of this painting from memory. Actually I created it from a few different memories of my summers in Montana, and I also combined different horses.  I put the Swede mountain range in the distance, but used the gorge from  Libby Creek to set it all off.  I made the stream bigger than I remember it too.   I added less mud and more water to clean it up.  

You can get cards and prints, and other cool stuff with this image on it!

King of the Hill, winter sunrise


"King of the Hill"
© Fawn McNeill 2008



This little original painting was a study on complementary colors. I  used Ultramarine Blue, and Cadmium Orange (the complement or contrast to blue), and White. The white and orange make a nice peach glow, and the light blues set it off. The dark blackish colors were made by mixing orange and blue with no white. (For gray hues, add white). Amazing to see the variety of colors created with this limited palette.  

Thought maybe I should add angels, or splatter for falling snow.  What do you think?

Enjoy!

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.)

Mountain Air, river landscape


"Mountain Air"

This painting had a rough start.  It was only half finished as a demo.  The class was large, so I didn't get a chance to do much in the way of demonstrating.  Played around with it a few more times, adding snow, a cabin, and some fog.  I got carried away with the rocks and the water, working over them a few times.  The large tree in the foreground was taken out and added back twice.  Clouds were strengthened and eagles added too.  I made it available in print a while ago, but forgot to post the original.

Gentle Song Too, waterfall, palette knife painting


"Gentle Song Too"

This painting is all about contrast.  I like the contrast of the light and dark values, but the cool and warm tones make a different kind of contrast too. I am also intrigued by the contrast of the flowing and moving water against the harsh rocks. The palette knife lends itself well to the abstract look of the rocks, and it emphasizes the movement in the water too.  It was originally created in 2010, but I have gone back and detailed it a little more.

Thanks for looking!

Summer Camp, Mountain Landscape


"Summer Camp"

Just added the canoe to this painting of the Spokane River.  There was a bunch of canoes piled up just to the right, so I decided to pull this one over and include it.  Didn't want it to take away from the rest of the painting, so I added lots of weeds in front of it.  Really like the way it adds more interest to the composition.

This painting is about Retreats and Bible camp.  So many life changing decisions and good memories!

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.

Flutter By, landscape with butterfly

"Flutter By" 

Created as a class demonstration from one of my student's photos. I left out some of the flowers, and exaggerated the hills. I also placed the butterfly at a different angle.  This  is one of the few demos that turned out nice right off the bat.  Didn't have to add very much to it 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!

Up to Zero, winter mountain landscape

"Up to Zero"

Memories of living in Montana with my my Grandmother, who loved to say, "It's up to Zero today!"  This always got my attention because I had just moved back in with her after living in the tropics for almost 5 years! 

This started as a demo for an art lesson. It was created from different photos and memories.  Love the warm and cool contrasts.

Fond Memories, mountain landscape with horses running


"Fond Memories"

Made most of this painting from memory. Actually I created it from a few different memories of my summers in Montana, and I also combined different horses.  I put the Swede mountain range in the distance, but used the gorge from  Libby Creek to set it all off.  I made the stream bigger than I remember it too. It was always a muddy mess right here where the horses crossed it regularly.  I added less mud and more water to clean it up some.  Plus I love all the splash.  I used some photos for the horses, but left a few of them out and changed their colors to symbolize my childhood dreams.  This painting took months to complete, and then I went back and reworked it too.  

ENJOY!

Winter's Coming, fall landscape with stream

"Winter's Coming"


This one came right out of an art instruction book for my adult class. I encourage using different colors, and moving things around some to make it more original. My students didn't like this one at first, but I really liked the change of colors, and the strong contrast it has.



Enjoy!
