New Painting











These photos are not very good, but I did not have time to take new ones as I needed to take this one to the gallery to replace the one that sold. The color is off (too light and I was not able to fix it in photoshop) and a bit blurry, but you get the idea. The last two photos are details.
Let me know what you think. Happy Tuesday! XOXO

I love the waves, tangled and loose, allowing what is to be.

I am a lousy photographer, but what you show here looks really good. I love this kind of painting, it is different than mine, but has a wonderful movement.

Annie,
Very cool! Are you familiar with the paintings of Andy Lakey? Your work sort of reminds me of his. He is the "Angel guy." Painted 1,000 angel paintings before the millennium. I had one of his and donated it to charity a few years ago. I always loved his work. And as others said here, I love the movement in your piece. Congratulations!

There's something tapestry-like with the colors interwoven - and also ceramic-like with the sense of texture and depth of the paint. Is it metallic or is that white mixed in to make it shine? There's a tension between the motion and the constraint of your repeated figures. Very balanced. (I know nothing much about painting, so this is all just impressions. I like it a lot.)

Annie said...

Mermaid and whitemist-Thank you :-)
Jan- I gave Andy a look and I can see why they remind you of mine, the texture is there in both.
Mary Ellen-I use Venetian plaster for the texture, which has a ceramic feel and I varnished this piece when it was done, which gives it the shine. Artist or no, you have a nice way of talking about my piece :-).

I'm not sure why, but especially when I saw the side view "Celtic" came into my mind. There's something about it that reminds me of ancient art.

It's very creative and lively.

They are lovely my sweet Annie. You have a lot of talent in your soul.

Wow. I love the colors and I almost want to reach out and put my fingers on the textures. Congrats on selling some of your artwork!

Erin Davis said...

Beautiful! Love the texture. It's one of my favorite things about the painting you did for me!

this is wonderful and it looks as it it was painted on glass :P

The photo closeups reveal your vivid colors and lines. I really like your color combinations, especially the cobalt blue; it adds excitement and enhances the movement of the lines.

Looks very ceramic, like a slab of fire-glazed clay. The close-up shots reveal the brighter color flecks within the "sand" and "water". The horizontal bands as waves lapping against the shore.

This one would make a lovely tile too, looks very Mediterranean...
