madness takes control!
Whew! I finally have some time to paint again. I spent most of May & June (when not golfing that is) working on our local Studio Tour. I am the chairperson; web designer and brochure creator by default AND let me assure you - that won't happen again!!! With 24 artists on the tour, you would think some of them would have time to do some of the work - ha! I always was a dreamer.
The results of my work can be seen at http://www.sarniastudiotour.com/
Yesterday I started 4 new pieces - one was a sheet on which I had started to scribble some ideas - I sort of flowed into it. The result is very different from my usual work. I got into stencils and stamping to create value and movement. It isn't complete but I'm letting it sit for a day or so before going on. I might turn it around and decide on a different orientation before it is finished.
16 x 22 acrylic on paper
I have 2 animal portraits to do soon as well - but they can wait.
The other 3 pieces are the gesso print with masked out windows ... look back a bit to see what I'm talking about.
The 3rd one is one step further along. I decided to base these on some figure studies I had from a year or so ago - hopefully the figure will end up just "subtly" there.
these are 16 x 22 acrylic on canvas
