More Art For My Studio

Last week I showed you the beginnings of a canvas I was working on - my fist project in my new studio. Well it is finished and hanging on the wall above the closet doors so I thought I'd share it with you. . .

 I really wish I could have gotten a better picture of it - I just love the colors! But I just couldn't make it show up in the photos. You get the idea right?
 I added a scrap of cardboard that I tore into a heart and painted then added a printed banner piece for the scripture reference.

This next piece is one of my favorites so far. It is my all time favorite scripture and I have leaned on this promise a lot in my life! This weekend I made it into a piece of art that I can see everyday and be reminded of this promise! I wanted it BIG so I made it fit on three 12x12 canvases. This is my take on the whole subway art thing. . .
 This is canvas # 1
  This is canvas # 2
  This is canvas # 3
 And this is the whole piece laid out together.
 I wanted the piece to have almost an industrial feel to it so I added small nuts with bronze brads through them along the borders of the two colors. I also added two of these crosses from Hobby Lobby on the first & third canvases.
This is what it looks like hanging on the wall over the refinished entertainment center and my handmade books. Sorry it's not the best picture - but it really looks great inhere and I am so happy with how it turned out. I would be happy to share the files with anyone that would like to make one for yourself. Just contact me and give me your email address.

Some of you may have noticed that all of my latest canvases are all scriptures from the Bible - you might be wondering why? Well it seems that God is taking me on a little journey these days. A journey of faith, trust and healing. And for the past few weeks I keep having certain scriptures being brought to mind. I just keep saying them over and over in my head. So I figure they are part of the lesson I am supposed to be learning. I have also been "drawn" to get them out of my head and onto some sort of art so I have tried to be faithful and get them done. I must say they are a comfort as I look around my new space and see all of the promises God has made to me. So  I will continue to make art with His words as long as He directs me to. And I will continue to share them with you all here.

I hope you all have a fantastic week!
till we meet again. . . .
