Two Hundred Eighty-Five!

 

IMG_5577Full Image

Another night, another painting. This was never intended to be a completed image. I was trying to make something I could cut up for another piece but  as soon as I started working on this I started to really enjoy to format and image that was developing. Guess I’ll try again tonight for something I can destroy. Anyway, some of the elements in this image are items I am working on in a larger piece so it was really helpful to do this image prior to completing the other.

Hopefully this weekend will be productive. I will be back at my favorite seaside home and the forecast is predicting rainy cloudy weather which for those who do not know is my FAVORITE kind of weather. Probably should have moved to Ireland! Enjoy and see you next time!

Two Hundred Seventy-Seven!

series 365 - 277

 

 

This image is a bit busy, but it had to be done. It was one of those days when you see that an image could be quiet and calm but everything going on around you says you screams chaos. The image feels impulsive and incomplete but there are elements I love. As you travel through this piece you experience different moments and emotions. I encourage you to explore and please let me know thoughts. Enjoy and see you next time.

Two Hundred Seventy-Six!

I was lucky enough to spend my weekend at my favorite seaside home, not mine but mi madres. There was loads of tea and yummy baked goods, nighttime fires and painting! The above image is a continuation of my other work. Still playing with shadow and a sense of being overwhelmed. This piece was a bit less emotionally chaotic since I was in a rather calm place when painting. Oddly enough I think the anxiety I was experiencing during the other painting made it a stronger piece. Either way the piece taught me more and I consider it complete. There is something I completely love about the greenery in the bottom left corner…. Enjoy and see you next time!

Two Hundred Seventy Four!

Tonight’s image started as something entirely different about a month ago and I used that under-painting to help develop the final image. I suppose its really just a study of shape and color. I do enjoy the piece but it feels like a piece of a complete image maybe due to its size or elongated shape. Either way Enjoy and See you next time.

Two Hundred Seventy-Two!

This was an image I finished last night. My heads been crazy recently so I decided to dive into a piece and not stop until I felt it was done. I started Friday night with a basic wash on the paper. I had been cleaning my cubicle at work and saw my notes page and thought it was actually very inspiring. It was lists and doodles which I then worked over with white out and highlighted or scratched out the remaining items on the page. I know it was never meant to be anything but it really flipped a switch in my head. It was like documentation but then the need to hide the information. On Friday night I worked on this image for ages just working off the last line I laid down. In the morning I continued going back in with Gesso to hide some items I felt did not work. By Sunday night I was done. I couldn’t see anywhere I needed to work on. I’ve already moved onto the second piece….. Enjoy and see you next time.

A quick sketch of shape and line, I always seem to revert to the design work when I am feeling lost. I suppose I have been so focused on other aspects of life recently my artwork has taken a step in the wrong direction. Hopefully with the recent revamp of my work space I will find it a bit easier to feel inspired to work at home. I’ll keep you posted, Enjoy and see you next time!

Two Hundred Seventy!

A few random bird sketches. These were never meant to be more than what they are but I was just messing around and decided birds would be the topic of choice for a few. In all fairness these are not super new, but summer has been so crazy busy and I haven’t had time to really dedicate any time to this page. I’m feeling rather inspired after finally completing one major summer project, a surprise 65th I hosted for my mom! It was lovely and she was completely taken by surprise, Ill add a link soon to see some of the details. Enjoy and see you next time!

The Simplified versions

Above are a collection of sketches I made for my new tattoo. Initially the idea was more involved but the longer I worked the image the simpler I wanted it. Although I do love the first two images they would have made for a more complicated and probably less clean image. The tattoo has a lot of meaning for me however I’m not to inclined to discuss it on here. Maybe if you know me I’ll tell you in person. Enjoy and see you next time.

Two Hundred Sixty-Eight!

Last night I started painting for the fun of it and because the weather seemed perfect and I had a clear head and nothing to distract me. I love nights like that. Anyway I really had nothing in mind so I started to “doodle” and this is where we ended up. I’m not surprised to see that I ended up with clusters and webs, I mean lets be honest that is my favorite thing to draw, paint, make….

Enjoy and see you next time.
