Re: Late April 6th- Abstract Still life-Definite WIP!!!



Finished just in time for the next WDE! Mary- your words really meant a lot to me so I wanted to share with you the text on the canvas. It's part of a poem by Danny Speicher called Awesome Beauty
"When the golden sunset
Sets over amber hills
When the moon shines bright
And all the world stands still
There is beauty, awesome beauty
God took the dust and formed a man
He paints each sunset with his hand
He took all the love within His heart
And gave us beauty from the start
There is beauty, awesome beauty
When the storm clouds come and thunder rolls
When skies turn dark
And it hardens the soul
There is beauty, awesome beauty
God took all the love within His heart
And gave us beauty from the start
Through every age
There is a call
To admire the creation
He gave us all."
I think there are a few more verses but I broke up the above and spread around the text on the canvas. I'm happy you liked it.

Thank you Connie, Maureen, Valri, Paula, Bonnie, Queen bee , Susan, Richard, mgin, EP, Joel (it's for sale ) Guilli, and Robert.

Guilli- yes a few stencils. I had to make a ton in my restoration class. Also scraping, rubbing out, sponging and splatter.

Bonnie- I used a white out pen that the last group left here. Good timing. lol.

Thanks!

I am very happy that you "finished" this one! I knew that you would do exactly what was needed. This is the kind of work that is done in Altered Books, which I like to do. This is very inspiring, both the look and the poem. Kurlie8-)

This is just gorgeous, Li! All those colours just make the lilies stand out beautifully. Everything just works so well together.
