  Mixed Media | Hallowed Night   When the rocks cry out And animals sing They boast of love And peaceful things. Each hallowed night With reverent tone They linger in the embrace Of their Holy Unknown. This 16″ x 20″ painting was completed using Golden acrylics, FW inks, a variety of ephemera, chalk pastels, Derwent Inktense pencils, Caran D’ache watercolor crayons, and Luminance Pencils.

Acrylic Finger Painting | Girl in Forest I had a vision of a girl standing between the trees with her bunny, staring out at the world. She was neither happy nor sad. Accepting, I think. Maybe somewhat lost and alone. But ultimately, I knew that she belonged in this forest of light, where peace, love, and beauty abound. Girl in Forest, Janna Vanderveen 2017

Digital Art | Freedom This morning I wish you freedom and life. May your day reveal the sweet surprise of unfettered kindness as you walk in love with all you meet.

Watercolor Painting | Peace amidst Chaos I took some time to paint this weekend, amidst the stress that broken bones and too much time spent in an emergency room creates.  After things settled, I contemplated the beauty of the setting sun, the majesty of towering mountains, and my thankfulness for the life we have. This painting is a reflection of that moment.  

Mixed Media | An Ode to Nice, France Sorrow fills the silence When love’s sweet iris falls. Come gather scattered blossoms, And cradle petals strong. Let’s raise our valiant banners, And paint our tower’s tall. For Marianne, oh sweet Marianne, We’ll remember freedom song. (Click on thumbnail for full-resolution image)

Watercolor Hydrangea in Blue Vase Grander earth has quaked before Moved by the sound of His voice Seas that are shaken and stirred Can be calmed and broken for my regard Through it all, through it all My eyes are on You Lord Through it all, through it all It is well with me. ~ Kristene DiMarco (Click on thumbnail for high-resolution image) Reference Photo Inspiration: Heidi from One Girl Photo: https://www.flickr.com/photos/onegirlphoto/4525231113/in/album-72157623382989087
