Favorite Nest

Favorite Nest
6x6"  Oil on Gessoboard

Yes, artists have their favorites too.  One learns to post and show the good, the better, and the not so good, because you never know what someone else might see in your painting.  This one has a lot of 'fluff' and golden light.  And I'm always a fan of some lavender in the spring.

Ready or Not...

"Signs of Spring"   
6x6  Oil with Palette Knife on Gesso Board

Spring is not officially here, but there are certain signs of it for sure!  I have been wanting to paint a series of bird nests for a while now.  I have artist friends who have mastered this beautifully who inspire me. There are more to come and they are available at https://www.dailypaintworks.com/artists/elaine-ford-5747/artwork

These three little paintings are a redo from a year ago.  When my camellias finally started to bloom this year, I just had to go out and pick some.  With the color so vibrant, the older paintings just begged to have a redo.  Isn't it nice to know that we have a chance for a redo also?

Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed,
for his compassions never fail. 
They are new every morning;
great is your faithfulness.    Lamentations 3:22,23

No Seat for the Enemy

The inspiration for painting, "No Seat for the Enemy", came from reading Louie Giglio's book, Goliath Must Fall.  He describes the times when we let the enemy, Satan, take a part in our conversations in our head. That practice can certainly take us to places we would rather not go.  So, he cautions to never give a seat to the enemy.
I am reminded of this every time I look at the painting and I hope that when viewers see this painting and it's title,  they will ask about the story behind it.  It gives a voice to my art work that I am honored to share.
This painting will also go the the Lake Country Fine Art Show in Eatonton, Georgia.  The Artisans Village Gallery is hosting the show November 3 - 17. Hope you will come by to see it.

Amy's House

This was painted in celebration of the coming of fall.  We still have no color here and the temperatures are just beginning to cool down a little, but there is promise ahead.  I was chatting with a sweet friend on the phone during most of the time I was working on this one - hence the name of the painting. Quick palette knife work sometimes comes out the best!

This painting goes to the Lake Country Fine Art Show this week.  It is sponsored by The Artisans Village Art Gallery and Guild in Eatonton, Georgia.  It will be on exhibit from November 3 - 17.  I hope you can come by to see the show.
