Heart On Fire (Painting)

I normally do not like posting twice in one day, but I just finished an abstract painting that is very different from the other post so thought I would share it with you.

I started this painting with it vaguely in my mind, but I was not sure how it would come out. I never tried to paint a heart on fire before. I do like how it came out. The purpose of this painting is to display the passion that is in at least my heart that shines even when the surroundings are dark.

The video is the recording of me painting it and the pictures are of the finish product (in case you could not tell).

Paintings on eBay

I have posted the last three paintings I did on eBay. As of right now they are all being auctioned. The ones that are left after the auction is complete will be sold on eBay.

Title: Forest

 

Size: 9 inches by 12 inches

 

Medium: acrylic painting on canvas-covered panel

 

Reason: It had the urge to paint, like I try to do every weekend. When I sat down to paint I decided to paint something different from my last 2 paintings. I thought it would be abstract when I started, however it quickly became a forest.

 

My Artist Statement: I, Tiffany Joy, work with the written word, visual art, and acting to spread basic truth and highlight God’s love in hopes that I can brighten someones day and spread the loving gospel of God.

Here is the link to see the eBay posting for “Forest.

Painting Islands

Yesterday I spent the afternoon painting and decided to paint a full piece. I painted it from beginning to end all in one sitting, which took about an hour. I also decided to record this process and see what it looks like to paint. I sped it up, put a good song in the background and posted it on youtube.

The song that is playing is Regnia Spektor’s Hotel Song and can be found on her album Begin to Hope, which was released in 2006. For more on Regnia Specktor her website.

 

 

Here is the finished product

Split Flower

split flower

Split flower is a 20 inch by 16 inch acrylic painting on canvas which was completed early to mid 2013. It started simply with the butterfly trying to safe the caterpillar who was not ready to fly yet. Through the painting process the plant with two different flowers started, which represent the two different feelings that were felt while trying to drag the caterpillar away. One flower reached upward for the light wanting to grow. The other reached sideways not wanting anything to really change. The painting was then bordered with nearly transparent light purple water on top and green fire on the bottom to add to the conflict.split flower 2

 

Solo tree

I recently started to post and try to sell my paintings. I realized that writing and painting are my passions and what I want my career to be in. That is why I write and paint. I love both art forms, so much.

I have posted my paintings with their descriptions on my website. I figured I would start to post them here also, since they are one of my joys.

Here is the first one:

solo tree

Solo Tree is a 14inch by 11inch acrylic painting on canvas, which was completed the later half of 2012. I painted this picture after moving back to my mother’s house on the East Coast from Santa Cruz California. I moved to reconnect to my family and friends who still lived on the East Coast, but found that the only connections I still had was my family. This isolation created a need for me to rediscover painting and through this need I painted this single tree. It has acted as a reminder that although all around may be dark, you can still choose to stand strong and bloom.
