I love capturing nature's bold moments. It makes me happy. There's something about the soft clouds, the reflective water, the deep shadows and the bold colors that come together in a way that treats one's mind to a variety of 'adventures' with each viewing. As I was working on this piece, a client asked me to paint one just like it 60" x 96". I cannot wait to see this 'adventure' on such a grand scale.

This piece is on a gallery wrapped canvas. The edges are painted to have the 'look' of linen. 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.
