Make even more art

This is excellent advice and I feel a painting spree coming on : ) Meanwhile here are a couple of small paintings that I finished this week…

As much as I love black canvases, they can be tricky to photograph ~ ‘Night Garden’ has gold and silver highlights and a texture that makes it look wonderfully 3D in certain lights and ‘Hearts of Gold’ has gold lines that accidentally (or not) ended up looking like hearts ~ both paintings catch the light in ways that a single picture can’t really show.

I have been experimenting with little videos of my paintings in an attempt to show how they catch the light ~ but my WordPress plan doesn’t support said videos and the ones I’ve uploaded to Etsy can’t be seen by everyone because the feature is still in beta phase. Sigh. Hopefully it won’t be too long until everyone can see what I’ve been working on. Meanwhile, I’ll just have to make more art…

      1. I do photography, sculpture and poetry. My photography starts out as found art. I try to make my works true for me. (Say and show what I think.)

        I like your cone flowers (Echinacea) in a way similar to Picasso’s bull. He looked inside the bull and saw who the bull was, and painted it: a curvy black line that showed a bull.

        You didn’t go as far with the coneflowers, but you did the same thing, your way.

  1. These are really nice. I can relate to issue photographing paintings. I don’t use black grounded canvas but have that experience with certain paintings and I think it has to do with the palette of colors. Some are just easier for the camera to render well.

    I like the quote by Warhol and agree. However, I think it’s helpful to not really care what other people think about the art. What matters is what the artist feels in creating the work.
