Finally, I have completed the painting, given it to my client and can now list it as a print for you to purchase on Society6!  I left inspirational words off of this one.  It just stands alone as a painting.  I think the background is my favorite part.  Messy, yummy texture and lots of it!  If you are interested in purchasing, scroll to the bottom of this page and click on Society6 and it will take you directly to my shop.  Thank you for looking and I hope you enjoy!Songbird

A brand new print of one of my latest pieces is now available on Society6.  This was a commissioned piece for a friend and it is full of little gems of scripture written on the branches meant to encourage!  This piece was done on a 14 X 14 deep profile canvas with vintage book papers, vintage wall papers, modeling paste and vintage doilies (I think doily is a funny word!), Faber Castel inks (my favorite!!!), acrylic paints and lots of love.  It was inspired by my brother in law’s photo of a beautiful painted bunting!  I am really happy that my friend loves it and it is now in her red kitchen bay window area!  If you are interested in getting a print you can go to my Society6 site by clicking on the link in the link section at the bottom of this page.  Thank you for looking.  I hope you enjoy!

A New Creation

A new art print available on Society6!  This is entitled “New Creation”.  The original was made on a deep profile canvas and included a vintage French post card, a vintage photograph, acrylic paints, Faber Castel inks, modeling paste and gel mediums.  The yellow butterfly is a sign of becoming a New Creation!

Where Have You Been?

I haven’t posted ANYTHING here in a long time!  I want to explain my absence and let you know when things will hopefully be up and rolling.

My dear sweet husband passed away from bladder cancer on December 2nd.  For the months prior to his passing, I was caregiving round the clock, but was still able to get some art in.  But after about the beginning of November, art took a seat in the way back as Paul needed me at his side every moment.  His last days were difficult but he passed in great peace with only his family around him.  God, I miss him!

Three days after Paul passed, Paris, TX was HIT with an ICE STORM!  Great!  Great timing!  The only consolation I found in THAT was that Paul had already gone.  It would have been horrible if he had still been here.  We used a lot of electricity for his care… oxygen, air bed, etc…  And another silver lining to the ice cloud was that my home was declared uninhabitable by my insurance agent due to some electrical things and I was blessed to spend approximately 13 days in a hotel.  It was just a perfect amount of time away from home and I was in a comfortable fog that entire time.

Coming home has been like coming home to a war torn neighborhood.  It is a mess.  And my paints are all ruined!  But God will provide and soon, for your benefit AND MINE, I will be painting again.  I hope that most of the mess and replacement of paints can be accomplished by the end of January and I can start churning out some paintings as I muddle through a grief process.

I am reading “A Grief Observed” by C.S. Lewis, that was given to me by a very special friend.  It is the story of how he processed the death of his beloved wife, who also died of cancer.  It is a comfort to read that someone who I admire so very much for their great faith, struggled so hard to come to grips with where God was in the death of his wife.  I recommend it to anyone going through a great loss.

I want to post the completed bird that I was working on at my last post of art.  It is finished now but I still have to add the words.  It was for sale and someone saw that and grabbed it!  But it will be available as a print soon.

I ask for your prayers for my family.  I thank you for reading my blog and supporting me in my artistic endeavors.  Paul is not lost.  Only gone on ahead.  And we will see each other again.

Blessings,

Susan

Painted Bunting

Finally finished, a commissioned work for a dear friend...

Painted Bunting

 

I am very excited that I finally finished this commissioned piece of a Painted Bunting for a very dear friend.  She hasn’t even gotten to see it in person yet!  I am so happy with the way it turned out.  There are hidden scriptures that are meaningful to her in the painting.  I had a great time creating this piece and can’t wait until my friend has it up in her home!  Remember, I do more than birdies.  If you would like a commissioned painting, message me and we can talk about what you would like for your home!  Blessings to all!
