6"x6" Oil on Gessoed Panel
with Palette Knife

Today's painting is in honor of my friends in our church's handbell choir. Handbells are beautiful instruments. Ringing them requires lots of teamwork and coordination. They can be played in many different ways to achieve a variety of sounds and textures. Below you can see a video of a choir in Taiwan performing the piece we rang in worship last Sunday. You can see some of the different techniques used. Watch the boy at the far end with the largest bells. Those are the ones that I play. It's quite a workout sometimes. Enjoy.
