There is just so much to see in this painting... is it foggy or cloudy... is it starting to rain or is the rain lifting? I paint in many layers using a palette knife and I always try to let a bit of each layer peek through as I feel as though it helps tell the story of the piece. I finished this painting with many layers of oil-based glazes, which truly bring the work to life.  

This piece 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.
