Praise God From Whom All Blessings Flow

6"x6" Oil on Gessoed Panel
with Palette Knife

Praise God, from Whom all blessings flow;
Praise Him, all creatures here below;
Praise Him above, ye heavenly host;
Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.

AMEN! Another 30 paintings in 30 days is completed. For today's final painting, I chose to do another hymn abstract. I have had the most fun painting these. It is such a refreshing change to paint completely from feelings and impressions. I can think of no better finale than the Doxology.

I have learned a lot in the past 30 days. Interestingly enough, I find myself in a completely different place, as a painter, from where I had expected to be at the beginning of the month.

Many thanks to all of you who have followed along and commented on my paintings. Your comments mean more than you can ever know. I have more projects in the making and many other small painting subjects still yet to do. So keep checking in to see new works.

Blessings be with you all.

  3. I have also really enjoyed watching your paintings! May GOD bless you as you continue painting.

  4. Thanks, Brenda. I have enjoyed following your 30 days as well. Looking forward to seeing more.

  5. WOW! Your work, always makes me stop and stare. Wonderful light! Love the light in your paintings Mike!
