Suggestions for Artists

Lisa Painting Heavens

Lisa Painting "Separation of the Heavens"

On this page I will post suggestions for working artists to carry out in order to improve skills and techniques. These will be from my classes, which has been required homework or class work for my students, or from my studies as an art student-  I firmly believe we can all grow and improve in our craft as we challenge ourselves with new projects.

I begin my students with fundamental drawing exercises(Unit A in my web class)- and that to draw well you must see well-That we need to simply observe the displayed glory of God in His Creation and reproduce it, spreading His glory. Our Father wants us to be like Him and He is VERY CREATIVE.

From there the skies the limit as we ask God to help us see beyond our natural reality and with our skills, produce creative expressions of His Truth, whether in the Word or from prophetic dreams and visions He gives us.

“And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my Spirit on all flesh; your sons and daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, and your young men shall see visions.”  Joel 2:28

I pray God blesses you with new visions and ideas to produce works that glorify Him.  Ask Him to increase your imagination and ability to see both the unseen and unseen realities of all that God has created!

“…made in God’s image, man was made to be great, he was made to be beautiful, and he was made to be creative in life and art”

(Francis Schaeffer, The Complete Works of Francis Schaeffer).

    My latest project is painting all my “Days of Creation” in oils. My banner above has a portion of “Let there be Light” and my Main Page shows me painting” Separation of Lights ” in an art show. The challenge I’m taking on is to try to make each piece more abstract and loose than the original pastel pencil drawings- You’ll have to visit my web gallery to see the entire body of work
