Oil Paintings ~ Creations on canvas
S. R. Bricka’s work in oil painting began in the autumn of 2003. Having no teacher to guide her and without the aid of instructive books, she taught herself by simply picking up a brush and taking it to a canvas. Her talent was quickly noticed by those around her including the owner of a local art supply shop and gallery.
Wishing to sell some of S. R. Bricka’s works, the shop owner took one of the, then, young artist’s paintings and displayed it in her gallery as for sell. The shop owner received a request from a man to buy the work, but despite her pushing she could not convince the artist to sell her work. When S. R. Bricka returned to the shop to take her work home, the shop owner told her that she would lose her talent unless she sold her work.
Bothered by this comment, the young artist turned to her God who had always been there for her. She knew that He had given her this talent. But selling the work for money did not feel right. She was at a loss as to what to do with the oil paintings that God had allowed her to make, and which had brought so much joy into her own life. She prayed and gave her creations on canvas to God. She would never sell the originals.
Since then S. R. Bricka has prayed to ask permission to sell prints of the work. It is not her desire to become famous through her works but rather to allow God’s glory to shine through her and her works.
"Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created."
Revelation 4:11, KJV
