"A Greater Presence"

"A Greater Presence"
20x30 oil on linen
I've been working on a project the past couple of months for a fine arts festival called White Pine Festival. Check out their site to see what they are all about, incredible! www.whitepinefestival.org
Late winter there was a call to visual artists to submit samples of their work for the opportunity to be selected as one of the painters to create a painting inspired by a piece of poetry. I, along with 8 other painters were selected for this incredible experience. The idea was to see what imagery we would come up with inspired by the poetry. (i'll post the poetry later, I don't have it with me at the moment) "A Greater Presence" is my painting inspired by this piece. It's been finished for a while but I have not been able to share it until now.
The opening for this show "Painters Paint Poetry" is this Thursday, June 17 at Alesci Gallery on Main Street in Stillwater from 6-9. All are welcome to see this variety of incredible works by 9 different painters. I'll post more on the process once the show is going. Along with the paintings we've all written our experience and inspiration for the paintings.

Beautiful - it definitely pulls you in and makes you feel as if you are part of the actual painting.
