another painting

I do not have a lot of my old art stuff around still, but I thought it would be fun to bring another painting to you today. You might know (from the previous post), that I used to paint murals. Today's picture was not a mural, but there is another connection. Here, water flows out of an outdoor spigot. As water makes contact with the brick wall, it comes alive and creates its own mural of a simple landscape, including a drinking fountain.

.

A funny thing about my old paintings, is that I used to give them titles, and even though I was not a follower of Christ at the time, I had a tendency to use biblical names. For example, this was was called "Living Water," another one was called "Genesis," etc.

me thinks you should find an empty wall in the house and paint a mural.thats only if your wife would let you!

Thanks Chris. That's an encouraging note. I look at the paintings now, and think of what I wish I could change.

George, there was one or two more, that I wanted to show, but I can't remember what I did with them.

Thank you Fishing Guy.

Methinks I would rather keep my wife happy Mr. Dave. Truth be told, I don't enjoy painting as much as I used to, so it would be a major chore to try to pull something like that off.

It fun to look at your old art work. I would dig some out if it wasn't in Yarnell instead of here. Nice painting and good name.

You are a multi-talented guy!

Craver Vii said...

That is very kind of you, Mommanator.

When you get back to Yarnell Gaelyn, please get a few snapshots of some of your art. I'd love to see it.

I wish I had put more thought into other pieces that I did Imac. Looking back, I see that they were very crude and simplistic.

(lol) EG, I'm more of a dabbler, really.

Another side of our dear friend!
I like them both but I'm really impressed with the concept of the last one.
You may not have been a follower of Christ at the time but he was there with you. :)
