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.
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. . . .
