Luminous Linked Light #Abstract #Paintings

I could not be any happier with these two paintings! When I started out I wanted to represent light and color connected together in a much more blended, organic, way than that of a kaleidoscope. I thought rainbow and reflection, like holiday lights or flowers in a garden in front of the sun viewed through an unclear lens.  I think all that came through. They remind me of those things, but also nebulae and dye colored microbes or cell structure viewed under a microscope. These are acrylic and ink over metallic acrylic. The subsurface is plaster impression on canvas.

#ArtDeco Inspired #Geometric #Acrylic #Painting

I’ve pointed out before that Stan and I love the look and feel of the Art Deco period. We collect many things from the period and it influences many things about our house and the furnishings. One day I got it into my head that I wanted to create an Art Deco inspired piece for our family room. I knew I wanted it to be geometric, to be somewhat reflective, and I knew I also wanted to use acrylic skins for parts of it. After working on it for over a year off and on it is finally done. I’m calling this painting “Building Veiled Geometry.” Continue reading “#ArtDeco Inspired #Geometric #Acrylic #Painting”

#Glass #Photography

Glass has a vibrant soul. I love looking at colored glass. I like staging, lighting, and photographing it to see what you can bring out. Light it differently or put in in a different location and it takes on other qualities that were not present in the first location. Continue reading “#Glass #Photography”

‘The Sketchbook Project’ Takes Readers Around The World In Doodles

“When the Sketchbook Project first started, we never imagined where it would take us. We now have a place where anyone is accepted, and a community is created along the way.” Steven Peterman and Shane Zucker write in an introduction to their new book, aptly titled The Sketchbook Project World Tour, published by Princeton Architectural Press

Free Form Still Life Progression

This was a still life I did for a group class I was a part of. I love how this one progressed. I can’t decide if I prefer it to be vertical or horizontal. I see fruit when it is horizontal and a tropical flower when it is in a vertical position. I haven’t decided on a frame yet either. I think one with darker wood tones and perhaps a bit of gold would complement it well.
