Think painting is easy?

Many of us, especially those who paint, know it is not easy, its a dedication...

“A Bunch of Roses” oil painting was completed on April 8, 2022.  Each new year I begin with an artistic project, typically a Valentine Project, making the rose this year's main focus.  This artwork begins Stage 2 within the "Beauty for Ashes" Collection inspired by scripture, on which I have been working for the past few years. “A Bunch of Roses”  signifies a turning point, the pursuit of, hopefully, greater depth within this context.  To begin, my content, the rose, is illuminated and exemplifies the idea of simplicity and grace.  This will develop as I continue to paint throughout 2022.  As these ideas and the tenents established in the scripture are foundational to my artistic efforts I have dedicated this particular artwork, “A Bunch of Roses”, to Ephesians 6:10-20, and am entering the painting in the Engage Art 2022 contest which is based on the illumination of this scripture.  Information on artwork specific to the "Beauty for Ashes" Collection can be viewed by clicking HERE.

I hope you enjoy this series of videos that chronicle my progress while painting "A Bunch of Roses."  There are currently 17 of the 18 videos presented below.  The final video should be available by the end of the month, where I discuss the "idea" of the artwork as well as the process and final dedication.  A landing page for this body of artwork will also be available shortly on this website.
