Baby Turtle and the IKEA Lamp

DSCF4498

Another custom baby turtle painting finished for a special little boy in Wales, UK.

This colorful canvas if for a little boy who reminds me so much of my Knox, that my heart jumps with joy every time I see his photo on Facebook.  He could be Knox’s twin!  He’s so precious and happens to have a favorite lamp from IKEA that he loves to knock over again and again!

I hope you like your painting, Danny!  With all my love ~Knox’s Mom

Shepherd Unafraid

 

DSCF4163

I found this 8″ x 10″ burlap stretched onto a wooden frame at Hobby Lobby.

Using acrylics, watercolors, and embroidery thread, I created this scene of an angel showering the earth with stars, announcing the birth of the Savior.   One shepherd drops in fear, hiding his face;  the other is unafraid, eager to reach up and receive a divine message.  While working on this piece, I continually asked, ‘Which one am I?”

Thanks for taking the time to look at my art and have a blessed weekend. ~Scarlett  DSCF4217 DSCF4230

DSCF4006Loosely apply thick acrylic paint to glass and then lay on top of Bristol paper. This paper is 11″ x 14″.

Gently lift glass and let paint dry.

Repeat printing with cloud designs two more times.  Cut smaller clouds from the re-prints, arrange them on top and adhere to paper with 3D mounting tape.  Print and cut out a yellow sun and red bird and add with permanent adhesive.DSCF4007 DSCF4025 DSCF4023

Music I listened to while working on this painting:

“Fly” by Ludovico Einaudi

You can listen on the MusicPlayer at the top of this post.

Thoughts for this piece:

St. Thomas Aquinas, Summa Theologica, Question #108 Hierarchies and Orders of the Angels

“As we have noticed, our human knowledge of angels is not direct and perfect; we cannot know angels as they are in themselves. In our imperfect way, we assign many angels to each order, even while we realize that, since each angel is a complete species, it has its own specific office, and, to that extent, its own order. We cannot discern what these specific offices and orders are. If star differ from star in glory, much more does angel differ from angel. Our classification of angelic orders is, therefore, a kind of general classification.”

Is there an order of angels that inspire artists? Do angels paint?  If so, can they use light as a medium?
