“In the Mystery” Landscape Painting a Day No. 8

In the Mystery: A landscape painting a day by Emily Jeffords

Hey guys!

Painting number eight. Wow! It feels like I just started this project yesterday! We are so close to moving into our new home. Thank you ALL for your loving support and huge amounts of kindness throughout this adventure. You guys are seriously making my heart so, so happy.

Enough mushy stuff. Down to business!
I’ve been getting many, many questions, hints, and requests for commissions. And YES! I love commissions and I am happy to take them during this project!


You select two colors you would like, as well as the mood, setting, or feel of the painting (bright, dark, happy, dusk, quiet, stormy…) and I will create a landscape based on your inspiration. Same size (16×20) and same price ($100).

To reserve your commission place please buy this $15 listing. The remaining $85 will be billed after the completion of the painting. If you don’t love the painting I create for you I will issue a full refund. …but I am going to work really hard to make sure that never happens. ; )

Don’t wait too long! There are limited commissions available at this crazy price.

These commissions will be done after the Indie Craft Parade (a fantastic show in Greenville, SC held Sept 6-9th) and they will be completed by October 31st. I know that feels like a long ways away, but guys… cool weather is coming quickly!

In the Mystery: A landscape painting a day by Emily Jeffords

Today’s painting is inspired by a song that is very near and dear to my heart. It’s one my little girls ask to listen to every day at nap-time in the studio (and I do believe my favorite thing on earth is listening to them sing quietly along as they fall asleep. I hope I never forget that). It has inspired and quieted my mind and heart countless times.
“Oceans” by Hillsong United.

There is a line in this song, “And there I find You in the mystery / In oceans deep my faith will stand” that directly inspired me with this painting. Sometimes it feels as though I am falling. Sometimes life can be extremely hard. But the water never consumes me. Not because I’m strong, but because I’m learning to ask for help and to turn to the only one who can really save me.

I love the warm, golden tones, in stark contrast with the moody, deep blue waters in this painting. So poetic….
