Father, Forgive Them

Oil on 5x7 gessoed hardboard.

I still feel a bit down with my back/COPD. I had a painting underway for today, but couldn't complete it on time. So, here's one I originally posted in 2009.

I started this painting without much pre planning. Each element was added as a separate, last minute, after-thought ...the light halo glow...the crown of thorns...the stream of blood... the cross against the foreboding sky.

Almost as if it painted itself, as they say. Psssst... Between you and me, I believe that sometimes He takes a hand in it. He paints it...I just hold the brush. I call it PUI..."painting under the influence".

I wish you all a happy and blessed Easter. Please remember the true meaning. Keep love and hope alive in your hearts.....The best is yet to come.

Spring Has Sprung-Floral Landscape

 Close Ups

Oil on 5x7 canvas board.

This is my contribution to this week's WDE at Wet Canvas. Susan was the gracious hostess.

Don't pay the ransom Honey, I escaped! Lol! :lol:
Sorry...It feels as though I haven' posted in a looooong time. I have been down in plenty of pain since the 14th. I bent over and sneezed and pulled a muscle in my back...intense pain!
That in turn affected the muscles involved with my breathing. All that complicated my COPD. But I'm finally coming back with Ibuprofen.  
I had a painting started from last week....I'll finish it sometime later.

Thanks for the great pics, Susan!

Statue Admirer-Pigeon

 Close ups

 Standard acrylic on 7x5 canvas panel.

This is my contribution to this week's WDE at Wet Canvas. Oty was the gracious hostess.

 Although these birds are scorned as a pest, I can't help but to admire the feather markings and shiny iridescent heads of pigeons. They are really a beautiful bird.

This is standard acrylic on 7x5 canvas panel. Basically the same process as the previous two weeks. Many layers of thinned acrylic over textured gesso.
I added a touch of black pen and colored pencil just to "kick up" a few spots.

Evolution-American Crocodile

 Close ups

Acrylic on 5x7 hardboard.

This is my contribution to this week's WDE at Wet Canvas. Li was the gracious hostess.

 I chose this sunning American Crocodile.

This is standard acrylic on hardboard. I was happy with last week's painting, so I tried this one in the same manner. Black and gray gesso loosely blended with a painting knife...leaving the knife marks and a marbled gesso.Then I applied thinned acrylic of different colors in random patches. Did the drawing, then painted with many thin layers. I also used a Pitt Pen sparingly for emphasis in select areas. I tried to inject more color than the dull gray hide that was pictured.

I thought of how the croc has evolved and has been around for millions of years. I was thinking this as I watched the painting evolve under the brush.
Hope you like it.

C&C welcome. Thanks for looking and commenting!
