New Painting





(Be sure and click on the image for a closer view)
Here are 3 perspectives of my latest painting. 10"x 10", Venetian plaster and acrylic on board. It is a bit different for me, sparse and brighter colors, so I am not sure about it. I need your input. I will live with it for a week and decide if I should plaster over it and start again. Happy Thursday!
XOXO
*It is now a week past and I have indeed decided to plaster over this piece, it just is not as rich as my other paintings. I will post the result when I finish :-).

It looks like it was fun to do. Why plaster over it. Just do more of them. I'd like to watch where you take this.

dearest annie, it's not my favorite. i'm not crazy about the colors together. i like lynn's idea: just keep going and see how it turns out.

Annie said...

Thanks, Lynn, and Kj, I love your honesty. But I can only plaster over it, once the plaster has dried, that's it, and I really can't paint over it. I am not crazy about it either :-), but sometimes you have to step out of your comfort zone and see what happens :-). xoxo

I like it!!

I like it- ribbons of life winding all over the place. I think I would've used yellow instead of the orange (that's just me though) but I think it is good that you are moving out of your safety zone and challenging yourself.

Annie, this is fabulous!! It looks like such fun!

Lubna said...

Hmmmm, not my favourite either. It just doesn't seem to signify anything. But why don't you put it on Etsy, after all different people have different tastes and could read a story into it.

Dear Anne,
The painting is very different from most of your work...but I like the fact it is bright and carefree....it reflects a change in YOU....and that is a positive thing.

Love and hugs,

♥ Robin ♥

Wow, it is true that everyone is different and while I don't love it, I don't dislike it either. Melanie, I thought about yellow, but I love red and orange together!
Thank you all for your input, it helps. I will live with it a while, maybe it will grow on me :-). xoxo

I like the brightness of the colors; maybe it's all the negative space (white) that makes me feel it lacks the energy I usually see in your work? I think this is the germ of an idea--even if you plaster over it, do not forget it! :)
