This is an attempt I made at Abstract art last year
I found it didn't come easy for me and I realized that it's not decision one can make to be an abstract artist. Either you are or you are not
This painting is another knife work title "kitchen party"
It's a bit old ,but i have nothing left to enter for juried show coming up
I usually do well , but as time goes by and I sell more work I feel strong enough to face refusal
I've been thinking about underpainting in colors and how much I like that and how much I like to see that the canvas or board has not been entirely covered
I think this is what i'll learn next using that underpainting as a middle ground and not covering everything with thick paint
this painting was done last fall same technique using oil like charcole rag painting removing with rag and solvant
it's dimension is 36x36
I entered this in a maritime juried competition she won 2nd place in mixed media
There was some dispute about whether it was considered mixed media or not
oil over acrylic ??Anyone have any ideas
This painting was created after seeing a traveling Rodin show in halifax
Seeing these sculptures in person i understood the overexagerated size being a challenge I think this was when i started painting portaits in large dimensions and my painting became more confident
this painting was a take on the thinker, its called pensive "30x30" done with spatula
this painting is done again over gold so it has a nice changing quality depending on the light it gets.
it was painted a few months ago I have changed my style quite a lot since then i now use paiting knife and bright colors
i find the painting knife to be challenging,controling it is more difficult somtimes loooks messy,but what the heck!
This is a painting of me done by me
I usually paint contemporary portraits
sometimes with painting knife, sometimes spray paint
this one was done using oil with rag over acrylic like one would do a charcole drawing it's 30''x30''
I sold this painting last week, i think i'll miss it
