I have been anxiously awaiting summer and the bounty of nature that thrives this time of year. Too often life is busy and I forget to take the time to appreciate the spectacular array of living color that surrounds me daily. Nature's strength is the majestic part of it's beauty. "From Within" is to remind me to bloom within myself and nurture each blossom within, so that those of nature are that much more enjoyable. It arrives ready to hang.

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.
