Be Still-12″x24″

Last night the creative muse was out in full force resulting in a very productive evening. I painted a few octopus pendants, made a lovely green jasper bracelet and painted a new piece.

Lots of things have been known to spark my inspiration as it goes for most artists, but for this piece I was thinking of the ocean, missing the Atlantic, I had just finished “Washed Away”   and had just sold “Industrial Wash” over the weekend.

So I started this piece knowing that I wanted to use a blue brown palette with the sea in mind and went from there.

I’ve called it “Be Still” as it reminds me of the story in the Gospels of Jesus calming the storm at sea.

So here it is complete with painted textured sides. It is painted on a 12″ x 24″ gallery style canvas. I’ll be listing it soon for sale so if anyone is interested in giving it a home message me πŸ™‚

Homecoming Commission

One of my favorite things is being asked to commission a piece of Art.

There’s just something fascinating about seeing what painting really captures someones attention plus the pressure of a deadline keeps me on task.

So yay for me πŸ™‚ because I have a couple lined up at the moment.

One is an electric guitar that someone would like done abstracted,

andΒ the other

is a rendition of myΒ “Homecoming” abstract painting but in a different color scheme.

Homecoming 16"x20"
Homecoming 16″x20″

So that is what I’m working on this evening πŸ™‚

Well less chat more paint.

I’ll be sure to post both pieces once they are complete.

Cheers,

Amanda
