Tea Time, teapot still life study

Forsaking All Others, pointillism of a red rose


"Forsaking All Others"
18" x 24"
ink, pointillism

This drawing won Best of Show in my second year in college.  I just made it available in print.  It is made up of hundreds of tiny dots.  Shadows are created by placing the dots closer and overlapping them at times.  Highlights are made by scattering the dots farther apart. Very intricate and detailed work.

Abstact Hibiscus, exotic flower

"Abstract Hibiscus"


This was done alla prima (painted in one session). Lively impressionistic style. I like the distorted and abstract feeling it has. It is a take off of the first one I did called "Out Front" which is quite realistic. I wanted to capture the light dancing around the leaves this time. Very fun to paint the whole thing all at once, gives it the wet-in-wet look of an oil painting. Lots of thick brush strokes, nice texture.

Sunny Journey, glowing cactus, still life

"Sunny Journey"


About This Painting:
I have always loved the way the light reflects and bounces around in this painting! I was intrigued by the varying shades of yellow green and yellow orange that make it seem to glow. The shadows add to the effect also.


Enjoy!

Peeling Paint


"Peeling Paint"
About This Painting:
This painting is mostly a palette knife painting. I started it as an abstract, but as it reminded of paint peeling off of wood I added some detail lines for wood grain and cracks in the paint. Just wanted to build up the contrast of smooth wood and rough texture.
Thanks for looking!

Window Orchids, still life


"Window Orchids"




These orchids were sitting next to my window. I was interested in the way they faded into the wall and stood out against the red drape. I did this painting with lots of thick paint and loose brush strokes. Very fun to do.

Thanks for looking!

Life and Death, texture study


"Life and Death"
24 x 32 inches
acrylic on Masonite

Not For Sale

This painting was a texture study in the beginning. My instructor at the university put all kinds of strange objects on a huge table. We were to create a composition that included simulated and actual textures. Of course I had to play up the contrasting colors. And before it was over I added the rain and the new growth that often comes when things die.

This is true of us as well. Often, when we finally die to something we find hard to let go of, something new and beautiful comes form the struggle and the death. This was the first of many paintings that I added rain which is symbolic of tears and trials.

War Cry, orchid

"War Cry"
6 x 6 inches
Acrylic on canvas

This is the third painting of the War Paint orchids. I explored the realism first, so then I was comfortable with a more expressive approach. I love painting with thick loose brush work. This is alla prima, and has a nice abstract feel to it. I may do this one in a much larger format.

War Paint, orchid, still life by Fawn

"War Paint"
5 x 7 inches
(ready to frame)
Acrylic on hardboard
$400.00
My husband grows orchids. He used to have 15 or so healthy plants, but after hurricanes and moving to a new place, he has about three left. This war paint is in full bloom right now. I was so taken by it's varying shades of purples and reds (contrasting with all that those lovely greens) that I just had to paint it. hopefully I will do a few more before it stops blooming. I love the graceful movement of these flowers.

The Guardian, Spiritual art by Fawn




"The Guardian"
30 x 40 inches
acrylic on canvas
NOT AVAILABLE

This was an assignment at the university a few years ago. We were challenged to create a symbolic self portrait with a still life set up.

The broken fawn is glued back together. It represents my broken life of abuse and foster homes, as well as the abandonment from my first husband of 13 years. God just keeps putting me back together!

The horse statue is colored the color of a horse I owned at the time, and represents the love I have for animals.

The hat is my wedding hat, and it is for the joy and love that Robert Barr has brought into my life.

The shells and rocks are from places I have lived, California, Minnesota, Montana, Hawaii, Guam, Florida . . . I moved every year as a kid, sometimes changed schools two or three times a year. So I would pick up something small that I could keep from many of those places.

The wild flowers are because my boys, Zac and Kyle, used to pick weeds and wild flowers out of the back yard, which always needed mowing. They always wanted me to put them in a vase,which I did, even if they didn't smell so great. Those are really good memories.


The rose is a promise of the Almighty's faithfulness to cleanse us from our wrongs and to cleanse us of the wrongs that were done to us. Somehow as a child I thought that the evil done to me made me evil. But God has shown me that we are like roses that do not wither or die. Our spirits are eternal. When we trust in Christ our lives become unique in him. Our Creator pursues us with his love. Only He makes us righteous in our spirit so we can be with him.

The angel means busines! He is for my belief that God must give us each many mighty warrior angels to help us through this sin cursed world! I believe they fight for us regularly. Because of Christ we are able to keep forgiving, loving and trying. We no longer have any excuse to give up. (By the way, my younger son, Kyle, draws warrior angels and he let me use one of his drawings for this angel. I added the serious face, and Kyle posed for the holding of the sword.)

I love this painting. I love the colors, the details, and the powerful meaning it has for me personally.

Wedding Roses, Merry Christmas!

"Wedding Roses"
5 x 7 inches
(ready to frame)
Acrylic on hardboard
I wanted to paint this from life, but my corsage fell apart when I got home from my son's wedding. I wore a royal blue dress, so I used that color for the back ground. I put the roses in a bowl of water, and I painted them and rearranged them to resemble my corsage. The brides maids had on burgundy and the brides mother had on silver, so I decided to wear blue and not step on anyone elses colors! Smile. Everyone else had red roses. The Church was all decorated for Christmas, so it was very lovely.

Hot-Hot-Hot, still life


"Hot-Hot-Hot"
9 x 12 inches
Acrylic on canvas

Not Available



I didn't get today's painting done, so I thought I would post this little gem that I did for a very dear friend of mine back in 2002.


This painting was done in many thin layers with lots of gloss medium mixed into the paint. It was painted from a still life that I set up and worked on over a period of a week. Each layer of paint must be completely dry to apply the next layer. Every layer effects the next. I really like the warm colors in the tomato and the counter top, but the contrast of the cool colors in the hot pepper just set it all off. There was a window off to the right, and the reflected bluish light was quite evident.

I love drift wood. It reminds me of my grandmother who collected it for her flower gardens. I painted this from some photos I took last year. I like the movement in the water.

Tiny Roses, Still Life, Floral Impressionism

"Tiny Roses"
9 x 12 inches
Acrylic on Archival Canvas-board
(canvas covered hardboard)
Ready to frame.
$675.00

This one took a few days. But I am satisfied with it now. I don't usually enjoy painting a still life as much as a scenic or an animal, but I loved painting all these colors and the play of light.
My husband brought these home for me to plant out side, but I had to paint them first!

Discover, vases and fruit

"Discover"
16 x 20 inches
Acrylic on canvas
$900.00

This is an older painting. I used to do everything realistically. Now I am open to many different forms of expression. As I created this still life, I found a hidden world of distorted reflections on the vases. I sat at a lower than normal view-point to give the feeling of a child looking up into the reflections. Loved pushing all the strong colors.
