#487 Pink Flower on Wood

I don’t usually paint on wood but thought I would, no pun intended, give it a try. The painting of a pink flower is on a 18×6 piece of wood and was done in acrylics. I may try some more on wood in the future.


#484 One Flower Among Many

A 9×12 abstract painting created using craft acrylic paints on cardboard. I created the background using an old credit card to scrape the paint. The rest is brushed on. I put the one black flower as symmetry for the rest on the painting. In art as in life all must work together to create something beautiful. There is great beauty when the pieces of life/art join as one.

#481 Looking at the Moon- Redo

Many months ago I created the art piece above, but back then it was only a line drawing with a little color. I decided to turn it into an acrylic painting. Whit I mostly like the end result I intend to go back and redo certain aspects of the painting. In life we are always going to have redos. Don’t fear them. Just learn from them and move on.

#480 Two White Flowers

A 9×12 canvas panel acrylic abstract painting. I tried to stick to a simple palette of colors. I like the end result. I think this is one of my favorite paintings. My advice for today is this always use the K.I.S.S (Keep it Super Simple) principle. The more complicated we make things the harder it will be to get through this life.

#478 Vase of Orange and White Flowers

I decided to let my inner artist take over for this painting. Parts of the painting are more simplistic than I usually create but I like the end result. The painting is an 8×10 acrylic painting created on a canvas panel. I think in our Christian walk we sometimes overthink things. I feel that is why Jesus said to have faith like a little child, because children don’t overthink things they just have faith it will happen.

#473 On The Dark Blue Sea

The wind is gone. The sails are down, The boat is idly sitting on the dark blue sea. The painting is a 9×12 acrylic painting rendered on watercolor paper. I could use this painting for a lot of metaphors but I won’t. The only thing I’m going to say is as I sit here on this rainy day is that God is our source of life and He alone is the wind that pushes our boat long. Lift up your life and feel the wind.
