The Rebellious Curator

(posted on 27 Aug 2021)

Ok, so here I am, doing what I said I wasn't going to do..post any more paintings. 

Yes I have been closet painting. I tried, but I couldn't stay away from my brushes for very long.

I have been painting for myself, making and painting what I feel like. I'm trying things, moving from painting to collage, to constructing a dollhouse, doing all kinds of miniature art, and assemblage. It feels right to do this, and a bit rebellious.


The painting below is almost finished. I've always wanted to paint a rainbow in oil, and what I'm finding, is that it's hard to keep the colours of the rainbow clean and transparent. I'll add a few more thin layers of pink and purple at the top of the bow, and a stormier sky to create more value contrast for drama.

There's more to layer on the foreground grass which is not visible in the photo, and includes some distant wildflowers. 


I decided to share this because it's kind of pretty, and in a world full of uncertainty, it's important to remember God's promises.
