Call, he is always home
20" x 16" oil on canvas
Donn’s most recent paintings are in this
Every 50 steps down a sidewalk, street or road, a
homeless person is at another address. They have a
million addresses and will be at one when you call.
This painting was juried into Audubon Artists, Inc.
2012, an online New York exhibition.
Faith with an Opaque Finger
24 in. x 30 in.
This is Donn's contemporary rendering of the
Bible verse in Deuteronomy 11:26-28. The woman
represents both men and women of all faiths as
suggested by a variety of worship buildings in the
horizon. Faith has an opaque finger on her left
hand; it indicates that despite our best intentions,
we sometimes choose to make the wrong decision.
Created with a free will, God allows us to make
choices which result in either a blessing or a
curse. Faith stands among the aftermath of a curse
with the promised and missed blessing being hidden
behind her back but visible to the viewer. What will
we choose next time?
The Hidden Key
38” x 32” oil on canvas
Collection of Tory & Lisa Ziebell (New Hampshire)
This is my first
still life painting. After the painting was well
underway, I got excited about the challenge this
painting presented when I finally chose the title.
Then the challenge was “to have a hidden key or
not?” Either choice would work! I do have a key
hidden that can only be found when you are viewing
the real painting. As usual, I always fall in love
with my paintings when they are finished. Giving
them up is difficult but starting a new painting
helps soothe my soul so I can move forward again.
