Grace Within - Abstract by Marcy Brennan


20" x 20" x 3/4" acrylic on gallery canvas

I just discovered this awesome app for my iPad called Camvas and it abstracts photos really cool.  I'm getting better looking at an image and abstracting it on my canvas, but this app really abstracts in such a cool way.  That's what I used for this painting.  Just did it directly from the iPad image.  The good and bad of that is, the screen shuts off after a bit and you have to keep turning it back on (rather annoying when you have paint all over your hands), but it makes you less dependent on a photo and more dependent on your own intuitive creativity.

Anyway, it was so much fun using my slow-dri acrylic medium for the first time in a long time and really getting to do some blending work.  I named it Grace Within rather sarcastically because while I think these types of water lilies are interesting, the big clunky center pod is anything but graceful looking - so this flower's grace must come from within.  I hope you like it ;-)
