A Place to Rest

A Place of Rest
I really wanted to try something different, play painting.
This is a mixed media piece, where I took myself back to high school and played with paper and impasto and just had fun with it. There is something so relaxing about not necessarily knowing where you are going with a piece of art, but just seeing what happens.
This painting has great texture and character.
Mixed media (ink, acrylic and paper) on canvas sheet (will require framing).

A Moment Without Colour

A Moment Without Colour
Do you ever have those times where life has been challenging, you are recovering from a grief, loss or difficulty, life is good but you still carry the loss with you? I feel that way.
We know it is life. We know it happens, but we need time. Lots of time, lots of space to fill the gaps, to swap the bad for the good, to turn the tide. It will happen.

Crystal Castle

It appears that letting go of what others think is freeing 😉 what a shock.
I have enjoyed painting for myself this week. Painting for stress relief, painting for fun, painting abstract, painting with a hope of a good outcome, but oh well if not.
I call this My Crystal Castle.

Grief

This one is titled Grief.
The loss of a dream, a hope, direction, the loss of peace, the struggle with forgiveness: how do I deal with this? How do I let go? How do I have hope?
“See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland.” Isaiah 43:19

Peace (mini)

Things have been tough but I am working through all the challenges in life, trying to find my way through the mud and floods, but I am again finding peace, through the grace of God.
After a visit to The Entrance to spend time with a great group of friends, and seeing the divine beauty of the area, I was inspired to paint a couple of quick and restful pieces.

Henri

This was painted (with permission) from a photo by Jacqueline Wells, of her gorgeous free spirited daughter.  I was  absolutely captivated by it.  There are so many stories in this photo, so much personality, so much joy.  I feel as though she is Alice on wonderland, or Dorothy or just Henri: she will face all the ups and downs in life with confidence, individuality and spirit.  She will dance her way through life.
