So, what about the NOT massacred Crepe Myrtle tree I mentioned in my blog title? Well, here it is , in full bloom, with open and un-hacked arms! I do NOT chop the dead (not really dead, but people here in Texas seem to think they are dead) limbs of winter ( what winter- last year we had maybe one day that dropped down to 32 degrees).... I love the free growing natural look of Crepe Myrtle trees, which puts out a huge and cool shade from the burning heat of the Texas sun. I never saw the massacre of Crepe Myrle trees until we moved here to southeast Texas. I am not saying they are the only ones who massacre the CM's, but I am saying I don't like it. Let them grow. The ugly knots the chopping leaves are just that-…

I apologize right off. I did not take enough photos of my painting process. I get so carried away at times, once my sketch is ready, I can hardly wait to add my brilliant, happy, and creamy oils colors! Truly, on the days I am able to paint, it is like being a kid at Christmas!!!

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.
