latest flower

so here it is: my creative process...




i was inspired by this incredible photograph... so i got permission from the very talented rachel denbow. thanks, rachel!!

okay, here we go. i set up all my "stuff" at the kitchen table. so as long as my stuff is out, we get to have our family dinners at "the black table"... our more formal dining area. the kids think its really fun!

i decided this particular canvas needed some scripture written all over it, so i chose matthew 5: 3-12.

there's just something really great about getting paint all over your hands ;)



the beginning of the flower...

about halfway through...

the final product...
i'm pretty pleased at how it turned out. you can't really see it in the picture, but in real life the flower just radiates. there is a lot of depth to it and the yellow i used to highlight really pops out. i'll probably put it up on my etsy sometime next week if you're interested :D

i have lots of projects that i'm working on. i'm shifting gears a little and doing some pieces in the abstract. some very exciting stuff! i'll share more about them soon... hope you have a fantastic weekend.

love, e

Love the new piece...I can't wait to see it in real life.

The tattoo guy is being sketchy (hehe...pun intended)...he said he would call me on Tuesday, and then he told me to try back on Saturday. (sigh) I'll let you know, though, if this ever comes to pass.

Oh, wow. I was blown away when I scrolled down to the finished piece. You really captured it. It has a lot of depth, like you said. THanks for leaving this link so I could see it.

Seriously impressed.
