This painting was done on the side of a storm shelter. It took me roughly one work-week to complete. It features one of the owner’s Curr dogs, which they bred and raised for coon hunting, and one of their Rocky Mountain horses. This painting was unique in that it wrapped around the corners of the building; an attractive suggestion by the commissioners.
This mural is was done in the nursery of Living Springs Christian Fellowship in Springfield, MO. I used a paint gun to achieve the blended green look on the wall. Hidden around the room are little critters, such as spiders, frogs, mice, etc. In the middle of the back wall above the lambs is the 23rd Psalm, “The Lord is my Shepherd…” The lettering was applied by vinyl, which saved me much time and trouble!
This painting was indirectly inspired by Picasso, who used bits of magazines and news papers in his collage pieces. Since I prefer realism, I decided to use that technique in a multimedia piece featuring a subject I knew – puppies. What better to accompany news paper, than puppies? As for the arrangement, I wanted to capture the way that puppies sleep in a pile fitting into each other like puzzle pieces. It made an excellent bedroom decoration.
This painting is done in Latex house paint. I painted it in 2009 while at college. It is 4×5 feet in dimension. It will be purchased by the College of the Ozarks in Branson MO, and hung in the Ralph Foster Museum on Campus as of June 2012. This is my largest framed painting to date! I encourage you to visit it!
