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.

      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.
