I began this painting by writing words and making marks on the canvas with crayon. Using washes, I began to fill in areas of color and then redefining some of the earlier marks I had made. After a coupe of days, I realized this painting was going in a completely different direction than I had originally anticipated. Just like life, sometimes we just have to let go and allow magic to happen. I let go on this painting and followed it's direction and ended up loving the adventure and the painting.

Getting to Know Faith

Faith Taylor began her career as a self-taught mural artist in Los Angeles during the late 1980s. She was commissioned to paint over 2,000 murals in homes and businesses across Southern California before switching to canvas 14 years ago. Currently, Faith’s guiding inspiration is the concept of a far-off horizon. She finds hope and comfort in looking to the distance, to the future. “Horizons inspire me,” the artist says. “I find depth comforting as it not only gives my eyes a place to wander, but my mind a place to go and relax or explore.” Faith creates depth in her oil paintings by applying multiple layers of oil paint and glazes, waiting for days in between to allow the paint to dry. Faith's methodical layering technique is reflected in the patient and thoughtful mood of her artwork. The muted, earthy palette she employs encourages the viewer to meditate on each painting, gazing deeply to the abstracted horizon line.
