Sneak Peek Friday - A commission peek and more Scripture Prayers...


I really enjoyed a creative week this week...I worked on another piece for my "Scripture Prayers" series (this one is from Colossians) ... I was privileged to be asked by another artist for my process so she could create some for her Bible Study group...

Would anyone else be interested in the information? Let me know - I might post a tutorial (smiles).


This is a glimpse of what is on my art table now - a commission I am working on...yes, just a peek allowed for now!

I am playing with Gold Acrylic (instead of Gold Gesso). I was reading somewhere - some time ago - that many of the Renaissance artists used gold gesso to give their entire painting a luminous quality...I am using it on this commission, and I am experimenting with abstraction in my mixed media...I am liking what is happening so far!

I am linking up with Jennifer and many other inspirational artists at Studio JRU's Sneak Peek Friday...click the button to go exploring!

The gold gesso sounds like a great idea. I got to get some. Very intriguing piece. Looking forward to the finish.
