I seem to be doing a lot of faces lately so I think I will do a couple animal paintings next to break up the flow. Faces have always been something I am drawn to, for whatever reason and I suspect I will always return to them. Enjoy....di
This was a class exercise and I really love it! Yes, it is a bit strange, etc, but I love losing the forms, and the texturing of the paint. I am currently doing another one just to see what happens and how I can incorporate it into my current work. Wish me luck.....art has it own path of discovery...di
As a painter, I LOVE TO PAINT. I love the color, texture, visual feel, and every little thing about painting.
This piece was last week's class from LFI2018, where we were to paint a portrait in the style of Lucien Freud. Of course mine is not near what his work represents BUT I really loved doing a more realistic approach than I usually do.
It is always fun to experiment and get outside of a series that you are working on.
Have been prolific lately...I think it is because I was off visiting for almost two weeks with family and when I returned I just had a lot of creative energy to let out. That is my theory anyway.
This piece is 30x30, acrylic on canvas and I am calling it, "Life is Magical". I use to use a lot of chairs in my work. For me, they symbolized that the ordinary can be extraordinary. Many times, I have use chairs to express the whimsy and magic in our imaginations/spirits.
So anyway...here is my newest piece. Dance with the chairs! Enjoy....
Sometimes you have a favorite painting and this is one of those times. Perhaps it is because of my love affair with deep blue...maybe because I love a simple, pure image. I do not know why but I do love this piece. I am calling it, "Night Circus", because it reminds me of a book I once read. The circus in the book was only black and white but still, I find the magic of that circus in this painting.
