The grass withers and the flowers fall, but the Word of our God stands forever. Is 40:8
I painted these two yesterday in my watercolor class. I thought they turned out fun. My instructor said it made her think of God’s pallet. I aged a piece of paper that looks like it’s been torn out of a bible and placed it on the painting. I’d like to hear some feedback on the torn scripture part – do you like that or should I just keep it simple and put the ‘address’ in the painting (if you look closely in the bottom right corner you’ll see the address is there). I love comments, so let me know if you like the torn scripture look or not.
These all look AWESOME, Mrs. Sandi!
It’s Amy ! You keep working God is very pleased!
HEY AMY!!! Thank you girl! Hey, shoot me an e-mail so I’ll have your e-mail address. I soooooo enjoyed our time together yesterday! I hope your time with the Lord today was great – I was praying for you!
these are beautiful and i love the torn scripture. well done girl!
i love them!! I like the torn look! when are you going to have your show?
Thank you Carrie! Well, I think for now I’ve decided against the show – I may do it in the Spring though. I think it will be too costly to have a bunch of pictures made into prints and matted and hope they sell. I think instead I’m going to send out an e-mail (soon) to those who have requested paintings and start selling them that way – then I’ll open it up to anyone who wants to buy them. I think that may be a little more manageable and not so overwhelming. I have to figure out my prices first – that’s the hard part! I’m going today or tomorrow to get a couple of paintings matted for myself and that will give me an idea of how much it costs to have a matt cut and I can figure that into my costs. I may call you and bounce some prices off you and see what you think – I really have NO idea how to price them.
These are great. I like the torn scripture touch. The flowers are really great. The technique is so loose. I LOVE that. Miss you. I may be back to class soon.
Thank you Marge! How have you been doing??? Well shoot, I don’t think I’m going to take classes next time Marge – but lets continue to keep in touch!
I like both ways – honestly! 🙂 I think the torn paper is neat, but I’d hate to think that how you put it in some of the pictures, too, would be gone. You do beautiful work, Sandi!!
I love these paintings. They are SO good. I especially love the first one. I like the torn scripture and I like the verse painted in the painting too. I like both. Also where do you take your watercolor class? I would love to take some watercolor lessons. I’ve only done a few watercolors…they are really hard for me to control. anyways love you work.
Just wanted to let you know I stopped by your blog to look at the paintings. They look good online, but even better in person. I’ll check back once in awhile to see what you’ve been painting–I’ll miss seeing your work in class this term. Let me know what you decide about the prints–I really would like one of the classroom you did today!
Take care & have a nice break!
Catherine, thank you for such kind comments! I’ll miss everyone in class too – it is a fun class and hopefully I’ll be back after the holidays. I’ll get a print made of the classroom painting for you and I’ll let you know how it turns out.
Love it – make sure and include me on your email list when you send out information! 🙂
Will do Sarah! I’m still working out some kinks, but I’ll let you know when I have them ready to sale.
