Mission: Nancy Beckham Capra -Artist Statement I am intrigued by the idea of color, light and movement combined with the power and authority of God. His creativity amazes me and I love His Word. I blend these elements of beauty and truth to create spiritual impressionism. By intriguing the audience with appealing colors and mysterious shapes, my images, upon closer inspection, contain Scripture embedded within the structure of the painting. I began using watercolor inks as a medium in 2000. The vibrant colors and unpredictable merging of hues is what I enjoy most about the ink medium. The hidden crevices of color provide me with the perfect place to embed Scripture. I have created many Scripture Inks as commissioned pieces of work. My work must not only stay true to myself, but continue beyond myself, affecting peoples’ perception of the world around them and God’s authority over it all. Watercolor has given me the power not only to translate my vision into reality, but has also given me the ability to share it with others. Furthering my technique, expanding my conceptions, and continuing to train my eye are lifelong pursuits. My desire is for these works to show God’s heart for all to be saved and to come to a knowledge of the truth found in His Word.

Spring Show

[04/17/13]   Want to do something wonderful today? Come out to Buffalo Gap and pray with Jennifer Jones and Nancy Capra at The Gate. We'll be there from 10AM on until dark thirty. Today we really want to come under God's wing and lay it all before Him. This is His. So join us, first building to your right inside The Plaza across from Jim Ned Elementary.

I am so blessed and excited about my classroom. It is the greater portion of a long process that begin back in November when we tried to buy a house in Buffalo Gap. Out of the "no" there has come this awesome space AND a space, The Gate, shared with Jennifer Jones in the Buffalo Gap Arts courtyard. (Currently known as the Plaza) I apologize in advance for the multiple postings that you may recieve. My main facebook page is Nancy Capra-Art and anyone can be my friend there. Also please like my Willow Art School facebook page.
