INSPIRATION FOR PAINTING FROM THE BIBLE

by MILLIEGIFTSMITH , August 8, 2017—12:00 AM

Topics: All Posts

LET THE BIBLE INSPIRE YOUR ART In my new collection of MODERN CONTEMPORARY ABSTRACTS I have used the Bible as an inspiration. I find a verse that gives me an emotion for a painting, then I paint that emotion. This is one of my paintings that I used and On the back of the painting I name it and the verses I used. This one is called "GOD'S PRESENCE " PSALMS 24:1-4 Sometimes it may be more abstract and not so abstact, my emotions just come out.They are all 8"/10"canvas board. They are not high price. I hope you will try this and see what it can do. I have a video called "PAINTING A REAL EVENT " I hope you will watch it and see what I have been through since a year ago in August. It is a true event that happened to me when I had brain surgery last August… Continue reading… 0 comments

NEVER TOO OLD TO PAINT

by MILLIEGIFTSMITH , August 8, 2017—12:00 AM

Topics: All Posts

YOU ARE NEVER TOO OLD TO PAINT. I am 97 years old and still painting. I have been painting 92 years I was 5 years old when I first started with crayons and a pad of paper. Next I tried pastels, oil, acrylic and last of all Watercolor. I have done a lot of paintings over the years. I find that a desire is the beginning, then comes passion to paint, but most of all, it is the LOVE to create something that you alone have done. A little bit of how GOD felt when He created the world. Instead of sitting around all day bored with life, due to the fact that you are unable to do the things you used to do, pick up a brush and PAINT. DUE to the last 3 years I have had to put it on hold, but I am painting again. The painting on this blog is a sample of 8"/10" on canvas board. I have done 50 this year… Continue reading… 1 comment

Daniel and the Lions.

by charliejpaine3 , July 29, 2017—01:47 PM

Topics: Daniel and the Lions

This paintings composition was inspired by a Bernini Statue of Daniel and a Peter Paul Rubens painting of Daniel in the Lions Den. I always love the epic scape of a Rubens paintings because of the s-shape compositions that derive from Michelangelo. Thank goodness I found that book of Bernini statues at my college library otherwise I might haven't been inspired to create the composition in color pencil before transferring it to canvas. I also was aided during the painting process by my master oil painting teacher Mark Menendez who coached me through the process of bringing this painting to life through contrast and his art techniques… Continue reading… 0 comments

Life goes on

I have been a bit hard to reach it seems. I have responded to several inquiries about paintings but have not received any replies back, so Im not sure if my messages are going in your spam folders or what. So please if you do not get a response from me, do check the spam folders. I try my best to answer everyone who inquires even though life has made it so my art work is not my primary source of income. At age 64 I now have college degree in Technology and am working for John Deere as a Customer Service Tech for region 4. I am not doing many commission pieces but will sell my prints and saws. I no longer can travel and set up displays at the shows, and I do miss the chance to interact personally with the clients and friends, as my clients are friends… Continue reading… 0 comments
