When I went out West (USA) to attend the 2009 NOVA Conference, I marveled at how magnificence and magnanimity our Almighty God… How brilliant His creations still are! Red Rock Country in Scottsdale, AZ (my inspiration for this painting) took my breath away! Even though it was a devastating time in my life, I remained grateful to God for embracing me in the strength of HIS arms!
This a mixed media collage on 18 in. × 24 in.wood panel using acrylic, watercolor, mica, tissue paper, water soluble pastels, and ink. It is the digitally enhanced version of my original scan; color clarity enhanced using Picasa.
I’m an abstract-expressionist painter… a mixed media, encaustic, collage artist who uses a non-objective, emotive style of creative expression and visual messaging. I create to survive, to LIVE with more JOY and less pain. ART (plus faith in God) is what sustains me.
