I enjoy the process of layering paint. Creating depth from a clean white surface is intimate and fulfilling . I know my painting is complete when what once was a blank canvas, is now staring back at me with a soul of its own, born from within mine. What started out as my confidant is now my soulmate. Ready to touch the heart, mind, and hopefully the soul of the viewer, sparking imagination as their mind travels from the depth of the realism to the mystery of the abstract. This painting is on a gallery wrapped canvas with finished edges. It comes 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.
