For the next few weeks I will be tinkering around a bit and making some changes. I'll have some new art to display and things will look a bit different. Stay tuned!
Convergence Part I is complete - see how land, water and sky seem to be one? That's at least what I see when I look at it - you may see something completely different. After all, that's really the wonderful thing about art. We all look at it and interpret it in our own way.
Here's another beauty from last week - untitled as of yet. I think it needs a happy, spring-like name.
Oh - and I'm sure you're wondering- preparations for what?
It's time for 29 Faces! So, all during the month of September, watch this page for a new face!
My daily trips to Design Seeds recently brought me to this rather stormy looking palette, Global Hues. I love the deep blues and greens. They remind me of the ocean, or a storm...or both?
In my mind's eye I see water, land and sky all converging, blues and greens and even grays mingling together. In fact, for the first time in a very long time, I've titled my piece before I've finished it!
I'm continuing my series of drawings, a couple of which are pictured here. The drawing at the top is still very much a work-in-progress, with just a little more black and white detail added at this point.
I'm enjoying this little series very much, and I can't wait to have some of these listed for sale.
I also have other ideas for drawings, including ACEOs, as well as paintings that I'm itching to get started on.
But... only so many hours in a day, right?
I think I might add some very slight finishing touches on this painting, but, for the most part, it's finished. I think my favorite combination of colors in this palette has to be the turquoise and purple, although I do love the contrast of that nearly-white lavender color.
I hope to have the completed work photographed and in my shop sometime next week. Be sure to look for it along with my other art!
Last night, at least for a little while, I was able to continue on my painting. I added more to the background, which included a large, pale lavender moon (is that lavender? maybe lilac? heh heh whatever it is I like the color in this case). I stopped for a little while and tended to a few things around the house while I contemplated just what should be in the foreground, and decided on a little floating island. I'm pleased with the way the island itself and the trees contrast with the background. I think after just a few small additions this painting will be finished and ready to list in my shop. :)
I am a self-taught artist, using my creative and sometimes bizarre mind to come up with colors, shapes and scenes and transferring them from my my mind to a canvas or piece of paper. I love to experiment with different styles, colors, media and shapes in my artwork, so you might find me listing acrylics one week, watercolor the next, and then a mixed media collage after that. I create art because I love it - it makes me happy. I'm here to share that enjoyment with others.
