From The Heart-Figurative

 Close ups

Oil on 5x7 canvas panel. 

This is my contribution to this week's WDE at Wet Canvas. Marianne was the host and provided a bunch of great photos!

 The harpist appears to really be into what he's playing ....harp from the heart.
This is oil on a 5x7 canvas panel. I wanted to do it all in knife, but I kept chickening out in tight this is about 50/50, brush and knife.
I wish I had made the background a different value or different color for more separation. I just don't feel like investing more time into it.

C&C welcome. Thanks for Commenting!!!

 Psalm 150:1-6    Praise the Lord! Praise God in his sanctuary; praise him in his mighty heavens! Praise him for his mighty deeds; praise him according to his excellent greatness! Praise him with trumpet sound; praise him with lute and harp! Praise him with tambourine and dance; praise him with strings and pipe! Praise him with sounding cymbals; praise him with loud clashing cymbals! 


  1. Dean, this is just stunning. Being a harpist (or wannabe) myself, I just have to have it. Can you send me the cost? Thank you so much!!

  2. Dean - I do not see a thing wrong with this lovely painting. Your colors and composition are really outstanding. Hope you have a blessed Thanksgiving.

  3. Nice painting! I love his hair. I feel like I could reach in and touch it.
