Ready to Hang
I was inspired to draw and paint this dancer after watching the 'Out of Egypt' Summer Musical performed in Commerce, GA in early July. One of the dancers represented the Pillar of Fire in the performance on a darkened stage and I've tried to capture that visual experience here. This abstract dancer is an 11" Wide x 14" High canvas mounted on a .75" birch wood panel with the sides painted black. All the surfaces are coated with a UV-resistant satin varnish. It's ready to ship and ready for you to hang.
Being able to visually express my feelings, thoughts and passions onto a canvas is the fulfillment of my personal calling. For the last few years, I have enjoyed creating hundreds of paintings in a variety of techniques, textures and color palettes. I enjoy painting with acrylic colors on large sized canvases and hardwood panels and using paintbrushes, palette knives and variety of other tools to get the texture and effect I am looking to create. Most of my paintings and ideas are inspired by being outside, inspired by songs, and inspired by scripture. This inspiration is well emphasized by the titles I give my art. My God-given desire, talent and enthusiasm in creating abstracts in my design studio has truly been a blessing. But also important to me is to share my art with friends, family and anyone who truly takes an interest in a piece. Art is to be shared and to let someone else call it their own.
Forever in love with art - Linda.
