'Courage' mixed media, 100 x 100cm

I read somewhere that orange is the colour of courage. Courage is what soldiers need to fight in the war and what pushes firemen into burning buildings to save lives, but sometimes courage can be the strength to face tomorrow. Sometimes courage is simply the strength to get out of bed & face today. Hope opens the door & gives us the strength to fly.

'Courage is not the absence of fear, but the determination to live beyond it’s limitations'.

‘Courage’ has been painted on a professionally stretched linen canvas. With the sides painted, the back taped and strung, this work of art is ready to hang. This painting has been finished with a high gloss varnish and measures 100 x 100cm.

Though the storm it rages, I won't be moved, I won't be shaken, I'm anchored in you'

'In the Right Time' mixed media collage, 101 x 76cm

Sometimes we go through seasons in life when things don’t go according to how we would like them to be. Events don’t line up, things go wrong and we can doubt God’s love for us and we question if He really cares. 

It is during these times that we have to trust that He is who He says He is and that His heart is toward us. Hope believes beyond what it can see.

'But as for me, I trust in You, O Lord; I say, “You are my God.”
My times are in Your hand; Deliver me from the hand of my enemies, And from those who persecute me. Make Your face shine upon Your servant; Save me for Your mercies’ sake' (Psalm 31:14-16).

Orange and bronze tones, combine with copper iridescent ink, as this combination of acrylic paint and textured papers create interesting layers of mixed media application.

'The Golden Gate' mixed media on linen, 101 x 76cm
From my 'Streetscapes of San Francisco' series

When the Golden Gate bridge was designed, many said that it just couldn’t be built. The distance across the bay, coupled with the ferocious winds, blinding fog and strong tides looked far to difficult to conquer. But there are some men willing to overcome great obstacles to achieve the impossible. 

Herald as one of the top ten construction achievements of the 20th Century, the Golden Gate Bridge is one of the most internationally recognised symbols of San Francisco. It is a monument of design mastery, but more than that, it is a symbol of our drive for connection and our ever growing expansion as a global village. 

A fusion of photography and painting techniques, this multi layered, mixed media work of art, captures the essence of San Francisco in all her colour and texture. This painting has been finished with a high gloss varnish and measures 101 x 76cm.
