Majestic by Gail Finger
Original Mixed Media on Gallery Wrap Wood
I decided I wanted to create something with the vibrant colors of a sunset.
The inspiration of seeing the top of the clouds with the mountains peeking through the rolling clouds of the sunset came to mind. I do love movement in my work so I decided that a Golden Eagle soaring over the clouds would complement the colors of the sunset.
As I was working on the eagle, I kept thinking of Isaiah 40:31, “But those who trust in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles: they will run and not grow weary; they will walk and not be faint.” A friend told me that everything about this painting was Majestic,and this is how this painting got its name.
