The Firmament On High - Sold
'The Firmament On High' by Linda D. Bailey
48" Wide x 24" High x 1.5" Deep Gallery Wrapped Canvas
This colorful abstract contemporary piece was inspired by my ongoing desire to paint heavenly atmospheres whether they be beautiful sunrises and sunsets or my own interpretation of what heaven or some part of heaven may be like. When I looked out and saw this sunset, I immediately tried to capture the feeling of awe that I was feeling. Emotions of faith, hope and love surrounded me and made me think of Psalm 25. Part of it reads, "Show me your ways, O Lord, teach me your paths; guide me in your truth and teach me, for you are God my Savior, and my hope is in you all day long. Remember, O Lord, your great mercy and love, for they are from of old. Remember not the sins of my youth and my rebellious ways; according to your love remember me, for you are good, O Lord." I don't know what it is about sunrises and sunsets, but they seem to be getting more beautiful, and I just can't get enough of them. The painting is textured and has a satin finish to it - a UV resistant satin varnish on all surfaces. The sides are painted black. A Certificate of Authenticity will be provided with the painting. This painting is ready to ship and ready to hang!
About the Artist: 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 desire, talent and enthusiasm in creating abstracts in my design studio have unleashed a natural talent beyond comparison. But most 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.
