ryan's peace


ryan's peace....finished commission
36x24x2
gallery wrapped canvas
mixed media
finally i am done! whew, this quickly became a hard one to finish.
but i am so glad i can now say it is done. they are picking it up
this afternoon. i couldn't pin point why i was struggling to finish
it. then i realized that i needed more space. so i put it on the
floor and it all came out. i had a sketch that i loved, but every
time i sat down to paint, i froze. then depression set in. you
know how it is you see the picture, but you cant get it wear
your vision is, on your canvas. ah finally, it came.
this is a gift for a son and husband. his favorite scripture
is ephesians 6:13-17...
"Therefore, take up the full armor of God,
so that you will be able to resist in the
evil day, and having done everything,
to stand firm."
like my home series, i used the color block on the side and
had all intensions to use the eph. 6:13-17, but i wanted something
a bit softer. so i added wings. i am always so inspired by
christine mason millers wings. hers are so comforting
and spiritual. i have some girls who earned their wings.
so these seemed to meld into the piece.
anywhoo. he is done and ready to go to his new home.
happy weekend!
peace.
