Advent Artist Day 16

Handbells (watercolour 6 x 4 inches). Artist: Vandy Massey
Handbells (watercolour 6 x 4 inches)

I’ve always loved the sound of church bells and handbells. Handbells in particular, when well played, have a clarity about their sound. I tried to capture that element in the clear colours of this painting – today’s Advent give away.

Advent Artist Day 16

Leslie Saeta is today’s advent artists. Leslie is a powerhouse. She paints every day, runs workshops and coaches other artists to help them increase their sales. I joined in Leslie’s 30 Paintings In 30 Days challenge in September which resulted in a lovely big stock pile for Running with Brushes. She’s running another 30 day challenge in January and I’ve signed up for that one – with the same outlet for the paintings in mind. Leslie paints in oils and uses only a palette knife. One day I really want to try that technique. In the meantime I’ll just admire Leslie’s work. She can be found on Facebook too.

  1. I loved the bells when my kids got to play them in their grade school Christmas program. They did not look like typical bells, however. I was always intrigued by them. Your bells are wonderful!

    1. How great that your children got to play the bells. I always wished I could do that when I was a kid. Very pleased you like the little painting. Thanks for the comment 😀
