A Minor Miracle

©2011 Bethany Vanderputten
"A Minor Miracle" is the title piece for my tribute to musical artist Alicia Keys. I believe Alicia has a unique talent to speak (and sing) directly about sensitive personal topics. She also can see things about a subject that others cannot, or would not. My series "A Minor Miracle" is about this character attribute as I look at the small things in life that are actually quite meaningful and draw them out into the light. In this way, I hope I have captured a little of Alicia's beautiful personality.

Anthony Kiedis

©2011 Bethany Vanderputten
My latest painting is a tribute to Anthony Kiedis, lead singer of the Red Hot Chili Peppers. I believe he has a unique voice that spurs young men into action with the ability to shepherd them through dangerous places. This painting explores that idea.

Painted live by Bethany Vanderputten at the Tehillah Monday Dimensions Conference on Sunday, November 6, 2011 to the live music of Jason Upton.

The Black Swan: A Tribute to Amy Winehouse

©2011 Bethany Vanderputten
The danger of commemorating an artist like Amy is that there is a tendency to dismiss her talent because of the way she lived and died. I believe she is England's rose and God made her to shine eternally for Him. In this painting I explore these themes.

Painted live by Bethany Vanderputten at the Tehillah Monday Dimensions Conference on November 5, 2011. ...more art tomorrow!

Glitter

 "There's a lady who's sure all that glitters is gold, and she's buying a stairway to heaven..." - Led Zeppelin


I created this painting live at a private function to benefit the Aviva Community Fund on September 19, 2011 in Calgary, Canada. At the end of the night it was given away as a prize. What an amazing experience from start to finish! Big thanks to Diamond Integrated Marketing and Inglewood Fine Arts for letting me play this small part. With all my heart. - B
