On a more serious note

Here a painting I did a while ago called Come Ye to the Waters. It's based upon the scriptural themes of Christ as the Living Waters as well as the ole' "he leadeth me beside still waters."
I've isolated her in the wilderness (Idaho near my in-laws) much the way we're placed in a harsh and demanding world, but a place where we can also find beauty and enjoyment.

Anyway, a painting I loved putting real meaning into, and downplaying it's meaning into a simple subject. There's a lot to be said for subtlety, especially in religious work.

Sorry about the camera distortion.


Oh for heaven's sake! A blog should be blogged, so here's another image. I've been trying to expand my style into the cute and cuddly, so naturally snowmen and Santa came to mind. Here's the Snowman to be followed by Santa soon.

This started as a 30 sec sketch, went to a 15 minute acrylic study, and then to a 30-40 min piece. I'll include as much as I've scanned in.

Some strong improvements in character, modeling, & design, but it also lost something in being worked over. Se' la vi (you guessed it, I don't speak French).
