Recently completed painting of Main Street United Methodist Church in Dillon, SC. This is the church I was raised in, and in which Brian and I were married in 2008! This took FOREVER to sketch, but was pretty quickly painted. Similar in style to the painting of the provision company, I experimented with the paint running. Acrylic on wooden panel, 20x30.
In the summer of 2009, I did a mural of Noah's Ark in a children's hall of First Baptist Church, Statesville, NC. I don't have any digital images of this, but the church printed a booklet for me with photos as a gift, so forgive the twice-removed quality of the photos. All of these were painted in acrylic paint, then coated with a clear acrylic sealer. Excerpts from the story of Noah in Genesis are woven throughout the mural, tying the pairs of animals together. Wish I had a better picture of the peacocks! Looking back on the hen and the rooster makes me want to paint them again! This fun project took about 5 full days.
Thanks for reading current posts about old work!!!
Up next, some commissions: more dogs, and a larger-than-life blue heron... And maybe some fun spontaneous pieces in the middle just because.
