Hello! I’m excited to share a new painting with you today. Over the past three months, I set to work creating some new paintings for my first ever solo gallery show called “Threads.” One of six 32″ x 40″ paintings, this piece combines paint, pencil and thread in a way I’d never tried before.
Each of the paintings were inspired by a different biblical Psalm; this one was taken from Psalm 37: Trust in the Lord and do good; dwell in the land and enjoy safe pasture.
I absolutely loved stitching these pastel colors directly over my brushstrokes – it was a “no turning back” moment but I really am happy with how it turned out.
Here’s a little look back at the process of creating this one. I loved this painting at each different stage (which isn’t always the case!). It gives me a “safe” feeling and I wish I could crawl inside and spend a week in that sweet little cabin.
An 8×10 print of the painting is available in my etsy shop. Enjoy!
