Happy Friday Everyone!! Today I have a new canvas to share with you. I finished this last night and I'm very happy with the way it turned out. I love the Psalms verse I used, it goes beautifully with my little scene.
This is a 9x12 canvas. The background is a mixture of warm golds and muted greens.
For texture, I used molding paste and a stencil then continued to add layers of paint.
I added the cross and used 3-D Enamels paint to add swirls.
At this point, I really felt like the painting needed more and I wanted some contrast so I added this cardinal perched on a tree.
I knew when I started this piece that I was gonna feature a bible verse but I didn't have one in mind. I never plan my paintings because I like for them to evolve as I work. This free process is what I enjoy most about creating. So once I feel like I'm done, I begin searching for the right words. Sometimes their my own, sometimes I use a quote or a bible verse like this. So as I was searching, I prayed. I asked God to help me find the right words, to help me share his word and I found Psalms 91:4.
He will cover you with his feathers
He will shelter you with his wings
His faithful promises are your armor and protection.
The verse is perfect for my painting and I love it!! Thank you so much for joining me today. I hope you've enjoyed my post and that you have a wonderful weekend.
