The Power of the Cross angels palette knife original art in oils by Sandra Cutrer Fine Art

Image
I had an idea using more angels, but I thought I should add the very purpose of angels-the one who made us all, our Lord God, who became flesh and dwelt among us, died on a cross, so we might all be saved from our sins! The sketch is ready!


I lay in my darkest "darks", and get a good thinly-painted (wash) outline in before I start adding texture from my palette knife, and the fully loaded thin brushes I'll use for smaller details I'd like to make.















Here is my finished work. I've used a lot of Renaissance Gold oil paint on the cross, to make it pop with color! I love it! Very textured! I love the read heart in the center of the cross, which means His great love, like no other, who died for us- shed His blood, so He could one day bring us back to Him in heaven!

I hope you'll visit my Etsy Shop to see this piece, as well as others I have listed for sale.

Paris in the Rain original oil painting by Sandra Cutrer Fine Art

Image
Sharing one of my many memories from my trip to Paris, France. I loved the hustle of the city, and especially the quick little rain showers that happened almost daily, many in the late evenings. I can recall looking out of our hotel balcony, during these quick pour-downs, watching the ladies running [home] with thier fresh baked baguettes, with a delicious scone or two. Or, maybe bags loaded up with fresh vegetables for a nice green salad.

This is painted on a 5" x 7" artist panel, added texture to the quality oil paints, ready for you to frame and hang in your favorite room or office nook. Great for small apartment spaces, or the start (or an addition) of a collage wall of original oil paintings.

Angel with Cardinals original art in textured oils by Sandra Cutrer

Image
I am on a roll with angel paintings. They are selling quickly. I think people feel love and comfort from seeing angels in paintings. At least, it reminds me that I have loved ones that I will see one day- hopefully in the near future! 

I painted this one with brilliant red cardinals. There is a saying that when a cardinal comes to visit you, it is the soul of someone you miss saying they have come to say hello, and they love you!


Original top-quality oils with added texture on an 8" x 10" flat canvas panel, ready for your favorite frame! This would make a great gift for someone who has lost a loved one, or an angel collector you might care to surprise!

MaLee has the idea that we should take a lovely Caribbean trip, and "chill" for a week or two on a beautiful beach, breezes blowing, sipping on an ice cold  drink.... chasing a few seagulls.... I don't have the heart to tell her we can't be shipped in a box....

Still Life Oil Painting of flowers in an old blue Mason Jar, Ceramic bird, by Sandra Cutrer Fine Art

Image
https://www.etsy.com/listing/523590190/bird-flowers-still-life-mason-jar?ref=shop_home_active_2

My husband and I enjoy "antique"shopping. Of course, at our age, we tend to look at most things not being antiques, but more like "vintage" items... We don't usually buy much when we go (these folks need to come by my house and buy some things from me!), but I was able to find an old blue Mason jar, with the original metal lid, and milky glass insert, at a great price while we were in a small town in Northeast Texas. I added a bunch of Hydrangeas, as well as my adorable ceramic bird (green- my favorite color). The flowers have added texture. Please click on the link next to the photo, to go directly to my Etsy Shop in order to view a couple of close-ups of this painting.

I was curious about whether a Mason jar, and a Ball jar were the same.Thanks to Wikipedia, they were made by the same company. A neat fact!

Thanks for reading my blog.

Child's Play by Sandra Cutrer Fine Art

Image
I don't call myself a portrait painter, but there are times that I really enjoy painting children. I love seeing the mischief in their eyes, and the wheels of play turning over in their minds. It does my heart good to see them pretending, making up stories, enjoying a book, toy, or playing outside, verses wearing their thumbs out on an I-pad, or cellphone...







Wisdom of the Owl by Sandra Cutrer Fine Art

Wisdom of the Owl

I found it interesting that not all cultures connect owls with wisdom.  For many African cultures, the owl is nothing but evil, while early European cultures viewed the owl as rather foolish!

It is noted that early Christian texts used the owl as a metaphor for Jesus, who appeared in the darkness of sin and showed humans the way to salvation.

Whatever people have concocted over the centuries, I think owls are gorgeous creatures, mysterious, regal, and powerful members of the bird species. I can't imagine a world without these big-eyed beauties! 





A fun fact about owls; a group of owls is called a parliament.



Although this painting is sold, I love taking custom orders. I also offer high quality prints on canvas. Please contact me through this blog, or from my Etsy Shop by clicking the link below:
