It's been particularly windy the past few weeks. I've enjoyed the magical sound of the trees as they bend and bow to nature's strong and consistent breeze. The crisp fallen leaves twirling endlessly on the ground form the perfect harmony under the grand Eucalyptus. I found myself caught up in the moment and enjoying Nature's composition and that was my inspiration for this painting. I used acrylics to paint the beautiful melody playing outside of my studio.

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.
