I find Art shows are the best way to get the artistic blood flowing again and that seems to be what’s happened.
Sunday I felt the need to sit down, put on some music and do an abstract, so I did.
I aimed for a complete abstract in the style of “Unexplained” because I really do think there are times when art should be done “just because”.
So here it is: Be-cause~ 13″ x 9.5″
I’m thinking this may turn into a 5 part series since I happen to have 5 of these sized canvases at my disposal.
So stay tuned
I’ve taken a break from the “Curvy” series and started a new series focused on shoes.
More specifically, stilettos.
The series will be called “7 styles of ————–”
Why the blank? Well that’s because I’m not telling just yet.
I want to see what you, the viewer might think it is.
What comes to mind when you think of high heel shoes?
The series will consist of 7 watercolor and ink paintings each 9″x12″ with a stiletto as the subject.
Here is #1.
And as per the norm, I was too impatient to wait for the ink to dry.
Let me know your thoughts.
Well, the guitar commission is finally finished and delivered to the customer.
I’m still not quite sure if I like it with or without the hands better,
but it doesn’t matter since the customer is happy with it.
Just for fun, here’s a look at the progress again:
2-Sanded and primed
3-background roughed out
4-background details added
5-addition of the hands
7-re-assembled, signed and sealed. Only thing missing are the strings.
Now it’s going to live happily ever after mounted on a wall for display.
If you’d like to commission a used or broken instrument for display, or any other artwork
email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Oh and I’ve added a commission gallery where I’ll be putting all the artwork that I receive as commissions.
Cheers for now!
Create ~ krē-āt
14th century Middle English, from Latin creatus, past participle of creare; akin to Latin crescere to grow te:
1: to bring into existence
2 a: to invest with a new form, office, or rank b: to produce or bring about by a course of action or behavior
3: cause, occasion
4 a: to produce through imaginative skill b: design
I’ve finished the last piece I had painted for the series, #7.
From here on I’m back to square one in terms of the creation process.
Interestingly enough 7 emphasizes creation,
so it’s only fitting that I pause here before going on.
I’ll update once I have more images to add. Til then, I leave you with #7 “Create with me.”
