One day on a way from church I saw a gardener trimming a hedge by the homeless shelter. I asked for some clippings, brought them home and painted this (oil on canvas). Every time I look at it I am reminded how beautiful things can come up from something that seemed rejected by most.
" and provide for those who grieve in Zion—
to bestow on them a crown of beauty
instead of ashes,
the oil of joy
instead of mourning,
and a garment of praise
instead of a spirit of despair.
They will be called oaks of righteousness,
a planting of the Lord
for the display of his splendor."
My name is Neringa Maxwell. I've been making art ever since I remember. My favorite medium is oil and sketching with anything that's handy. Lately I started experimenting with acrylics as well. My favorite subject is people- though I do a lot of landscapes, still-life paintings, and fantasy art as well. I am fascinated with modern art, but most of the time while trying to stay abstract, I'll sneak in some representational detail, because painting the things we know and recognize is so much fun! I hope you like my art. Thank you for visiting my portfolio.
