Today I was asked to describe my art in ten words or so. The painting shared today is named “Three is Not Company”. What I like to do is make you think about what I have painted and realize there is more than goes into a painting than you might think. It was the day, it was Paris, is amazing how uncomfortable the woman on the right looked as the man in the middle was intensely interested in the woman on the left.
What do you think, is it a good description of my art?
My son Chadwyck took a photo of three horses crossing a creek outside of San Francisco, and I Liked it so much I decided to paint it, but the poor horse in the middle came out looking more like a donkey than the third horse and it made me think that some things do not always come out as they were intended. Maybe we all make mistakes in life, but the important thing is that we don’t become an “idiot” about our mistakes
I think I may have found a style that I enjoy. I love doing abstracts, but adding the nude on top of the color was great fun. Please tell me what you think. The woman just seemed to emerge from the abstract and seemed to want to be seated. I am thinking about doing more of these in the future. Love doing abstracts and have fun drawing figures, so this might be a fun combination to do in the future.
I took this photo in Paris last January and always thought it would make a fun painting. I am having a show in June at Rick Steves in Edmonds, so am trying to do a few more European paintings.
I wanted to capture the light on the building and the fun of different colored umbrellas.
Just this last week I started taking a figure drawing class after not doing much in charcoal for a while. The model struck this pose and I thought “how do I do this?”
I like the result. It is only 8 x 8 inches, so not big, but I had fun trying to bring some drama into the pose. Hope I can be posting more in the future.
