Beside still waters

July 26th, 2007

“Beside Still Waters” – 12″ x 16″ – oil on canvas

Inspired by the 23rd Psalm, this painting of a row of eucalyptuses and deciduous trees beside still waters was an experiment using a more colorist approach than I have attempted in the past. It’s a potential new direction for me. What do you think?

  2. I love it! It’s one of your most appealing pieces yet. If you feel drawn in this direction I’d run towards it, arms open wide.

  3. I agree with Kathleen and Nancy Bea, it has great appeal and charm. I always love what you do with sky and water and space.
    It will be fun to follow where this is taking you.

  5. It’s good to associate a painting with a title that is more than just a placename, but sometimes artists go over the top with titles that really sound poncy, highfaluting, or literary lines but this one fits well. Beside still waters gives us enough associatons to to think about.

  6. How BEAUTIFUL! I have just started a new Yahoo! Group called Art in the Word. It is a group for Christian artists of all mediums and has a weekly challenge to create a piece based on scripture or a Christian theme. Our first challenge is Psalm 23:2!!! Your painting captures this verse so beautifully. I would like to invite you to join this talented group of women. You can check out our site here http://groups.yahoo.com/group/artintheword/

    Blessings,

  8. Karen, I love it. The colors are excellent.

    I also LOVE the City Hall – one of my favorite spots. Congrats on the Brand Library show.

  9. Your work is becoming more beautiful and more interesting, though I thought it was beautiful and interesting before.

  10. To echo many others, I love it! I would love to see more experiments in this vein.

    Well done on your many achievements these last few days. Well deserved, and beautiful paintings. I love the colour on the town hall (was it a town hall? – the building) and I also like the clouds/mist in the hills on the painting below it that you sold to the same collector. Lucky buyer!
