Safe Harbor

Safe Harbor by Candy Prather
30"x40" oil on canvas

I'm beginning to really enjoy painting water's funny 
because I'd really rather be in the mountains. 
My husband, R A, and I decided it was time for me to paint
one for our bedroom (a long time coming, seeing
that we've been in our home for six years now).
We found this photo and just liked it. In the photo the land
went all the way across and I decided I wanted a lighthouse, so
off went some of the land and on went the lighthouse.
R A absolutely adores it...hope you enjoy it too.
Happy Fall!

He Makes All Things New

 He Makes All Things New by Candy Prather
16"x20" oil on canvas

 He makes All Things New is a commission painted for a couple that goes to my church. She asked me to paint them as children with wildflowers in the background and in white to signify their marriage. This painting was inspired by a vision she experienced earlier during a significant time in their marriage. I'm so blessed to have the opportunity to paint such meaningful piece for a couple that I admire and love very much. The painting was a wedding anniversary gift from her to him.

 Tessie by Candy Prather
11"x14" oil on canvas

Meet Tessie...who belongs to a friend of a photographer friend
who had posted her photograph on an Artists social site.
Well, almost a year ago I spotted her and couldn't
resist the urge to paint her. Finally, I did and here she is!

 Beautiful by Candy Prather
20"x16" oil on canvas

I did this one on a whim several months ago. Before finishing I felt led to contribute
it to the spring Ladies Conference we had at the church I attend.

Lady, whose light does shine
washed in Jesus’ blood
Abides in and is dependent upon the Vine
Growing, and people she loves
Her obedience produces fruit
And the Father, she desires to please
Full of His Spirit and truth
She is rightly beautiful and complete.
