Out of the Darkness by Vicky RobinsonARTM43035
When I moved to Maui, I discovered my favorite artist. We became friends and exchanged paintings. Her art hangs in my home and every time I look at it I burst into a smile. Proverbs 15:13 says "A happy heart makes the face cheerful." I want to pass on that joy in my art.
I use many types of paints dyes and inks and have tried hundreds of substrates from the consistency of tissue paper to rocks. My brushes are from 1/32" to 5" and are made from hairs of a variety of animals. I also use all sizes and shapes of sponges, wallboard tools, palette knives, bamboo sticks and twigs.
My best paintings occur when I let go of myself and stop meddling. Watercolor is my favorite medium because it wants to flow and find its own happy place.
I hope my paintings make you smile and when you either view my art for the fun of it or purchase it, you put a big smile on my face. So thank you!
Maui is beginning to heal from the fires. Children are dancing in the waves again along with the sound of laughter. Ecclesiastes 3:3-4 reminds us there is "a time to weep and a time to laugh, a time to mourn and a time to dance." The lotus is rising out of darkness and into the light.
