About the piece

Acrylic on Canvas
18" x 36"

This piece is a manifestation of life's "do overs". After priming over a painting I was unhappy with, I discovered a new process that has become the foundation of a new collection of work. The random texture from the previous painting caused me to apply the first layer of paint in a three step process that adds great dimension to the painting. Abstract in nature, I allowed the painting to speak to me as I developed each inch with multiple layers of color. What emerged was a reminder of how the Good Shepherd leads us to still waters of peace, rest, and restoration.
