Calming the Storm
24 x 18, Acrylic on Canvas, James Bennett, 2019

Jesus Calming the Storm
  • This painting is the first really abstract image in this series.
  • My intent is to convey a feeling, an impression, rather than present a realistic image.
  • The paint at the top was applied heavily and forcefully with a palette knife.
  • The driving rain and violence of the storm were indicated by scraping with the sharp edge of the knife.
  • The paint covering the bottom half of this work was applied and smoothed with a soft, sable brush.
  • There is a strong contrast between the impression of violent action at the top and soft, peacefulness at the bottom.
