Lifting Fog, cardinal, turkey, deer, Florida art


 "Lifting Fog"  
 


I worked on this painting off and on for a couple of years.  Just finished it in January, 2019, when I added the cardinal.  He was the whole point to begin with, so I was glad to finally put him in there!

The cardinal kept posing for me while I was scouting the area for a good place to set up my easel.  I did several small plein air (on location) studies farther down this muddy road.  I actually got my shoes wet taking photos of this old fence!

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.)

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.

"Another Piece of Paradise"

This is the third painting in this series of large sunsets.  It is symbolic for the journey we are on.  Many times we come through the dry and harsh places before we find a season of beauty that is overwhelming. Maybe we wouldn't have recognized it if we hadn't struggled to find better things.

This is a palette knife painting, full of texture and bold color.  I added horses running in the distance as a celebration of life.


Enjoy!

Tested, old barn after a storm


"Tested"

This one started as a demonstration for a beginners class last spring.  Love the mood it sets. 

My demos are done for follow-along classes.  Sometimes we use my pictures, or pictures that my students bring in. Sometimes we use art books or calendars.  We do not copy exactly from the image.  We move things around.  I encourage them to use their own colors, add more trees, flowers, birds, or whatever they want.  I love they way they all look a little different at the end of class.

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.
