I painted “Copper Marsh” on a day when I was inspired by God‘s beauty. I wanted to convey feeling of the “still small voice” that we hear about in the story of Elijah (I Kings 19:12). Confident but meek. Engaging but peaceful. Restful but interesting. Quiet but colorful. To me this embodies everything from an inspired thought to the pleasant joy of a beautiful marriage. It’s the feeling one gets in a harmonious workplace or when talking with a dear old friend. It’s the feeling one gets on a long run when the vigorous activity is forgotten because you’re busy soaking in the goodness and beauty around you. I hope it inspires you to look for instances of the “still small voice” in your own life.
This was painted using a rubber kitchen spatula and finished with loose brushwork. I was going for heavy texture on these and added a little something extra special with metallic paint. The image seems to change as you walk past it as the light shifts on the shining surface.
This painting pairs beautifully with its sister painting, “Grassy Marsh.“
