'Steadfast Love' by Linda D. Bailey
11" Wide x 14" High x .075" Deep
This painting was originally an abstract of summer colors. But as the painting developed, I noticed a heart hiding behind the blues. I immediately had a feeling of being loved forever - for who I am - and that the love is a steadfast love. Well, that took me right to Psalm 136 which repeats "His steadfast love endures forever" several times and ends "Give thanks to the God of Heaven, for his steadfast love endures forever". And that makes me happy! About the painting: it's an acrylic with texture painted canvas mounted on a birch wood panel. The dimensions are 11" Wide x 14" High x .75" Deep. The sides are painted black as well as about 1/4" around the painting itself. A satin UV-resistant varnish has been coated on all surfaces to protect against dust and sunlight. This painting is 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.
