New Display



 With everything shut down these days, just when I have a new series of mixed media art I want to share, I have decided to rent a small space at Unique Boutique in Okeechobee Florida.  It has been a really good experience for me. I am looking forward to making more of these fun creations available!

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).

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!

I Am, true immortal, Jesus


"I Am"
20 x 24 inches
Acrylic on canvas

By far the Most challenging thing I have ever painted.  More than a year of work, and many tears went into this painting.

I kept thinking about the focus of Halloween: fear, death, blood, the un-dead, etc....  I thought about the one who brings love, life, forgiveness, joy, and restoration.  I'm not talking about religion or rules or tradition.  (I'm talking about the man who gave us two commandments: Love God Almighty with all your mind, heart and soul, and love your neighbor as yourself.) So I wanted the focus to be on him!

"Very Truly I tell you," Jesus answered, "before Abraham was born, I Am!"  John 8:58

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.)

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.

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!

Enduring Love, Cross with a dove at sunrise


"Enduring Love"

Created this painting a few years ago.  It is now available in cards and prints!

 This is surrealism. Lots of symbolism too. The sunrise represents the new covenant,  and the crown of thorns is for the suffering He bore for us to find healing and eternal life. The dove is for the Holy Spirit of Jesus Christ, who lives in us when we commit to living for him.  (Which is not the same as being religious,  but living day to day as He leads us, by his strength and power to overcome the hardships we all face.)

Heaven's Touch, girl riding a horse at sunset on a beach


"Heaven's Touch"



I did this large painting a few years ago, and now I just made it available in print.  It combines many thoughts and memories from many places.   Poured myself into it for a few months. Created entirely from memory!  Love the way it came together.

Here is what I originally wrote about it:
I have been working on this painting off and on for almost a year now. It is all about contrasts and texture, as far as the technical aspects go.

This painting is far reaching too. Emotionally we all have things that need healing. Sometimes a sunrise or a sunset, a cup of coffee with a friend, or a moment of silence can touch us deeper than anything else at that time. This painting combines some of those ideas: dreams I have had, horses I have ridden, and prayers cried out from the depth of my soul in my most turbulent times. Always God reaches out and heals the hurt a little more.

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.

Enjoy!

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.

God's Grace, palette knife angels

"God's Grace"

This was for my daughter-in-law's birthday. My son, Kyle, is in the Airforce, in Afghanistan, and he had to leave his wife and new baby girl a couple of months ago. I painted the three angels to symbolize God's care for each of them. I titled it "God's Grace" because my new grand-daughter is named Kylynn Grace.

This original is not available, but I would love to paint something similar for you. My prices are by size. I also have prints and cards available of some of my other angels. (See side bar).

Heaven's Joy, seascape angel at sunset

"Heaven's Joy"



About This Painting:
This is another one I did on watercolor paper. It is a harder support to work on, but nice for framing because it can be easily matted and put behind glass, even trimmed some if needed.

I painted the landscape from memories of Guam. We always had fantastic sunsets with intense colors. I added the angel for wishes of Joy.

Enjoy!


Media: acrylic on watercolor paper
Size: 5 in X 7 in (12.7 cm X 17.8 cm)
Sorry but the original is not available.

Blessings to you for the New Year!
