The Shady Rest Full Gospel Church

Shady Rest Full Gospel Church painting by Phil Dynan

Plein Air Impressionism

This little church is located on Cty Rt A11 near Tehama, California. I spotted it on my way to buy Alfalfa bales from a local farmer. It didn't take long to do a quick assessment, eliminate distracting details, and capture the essence of the place. I painted quickly and added the "bulging" effect to give the impression that this church is full of life, song and hope when it is in use. The clouds were rendered to enhance that effect. The colour of the church is really white, but I added new brightness and cheerfulness to the exterior as well, because the impression I got was that this is a joyful place for the people who visit.

I also used creative license to add the 38 Buick and my dog, Chili, who loves going for a ride to the Alfalfa farm.

ABSTRACT ART

Notecards

Notecards are boxed or come individually wrapped. They make great gifts.

Dreams, events, people, pets, landsacapes and fantasy merge into these abstract pieces. Some are related to the July 7th bombing in the London Underground, others relate only to dreams, and still some seem to have a message.

Pathways to the Heart is a series I have been working on over the last 15 years.

Colour ties them together. And execution: acrylic on canvas. July 7 series are the latest paintings. Wyoming Sunset is the oldest.

Giclee Prints (archival inks and paper)and Notecards are available. Prices start at $3.50. Originals may be available - see specific image page.
