New Abstract Work Listed

18 Jun

image

“Encroaching Autumn” is my latest Abstract Expressionist work, listed at my Etsy shop. It’s acrylic on Ampersand panel (Masonite). It’s got a lot of accents in metallic copper and gold, so in some lights it’s “very shiny, very shiny” as Rainman would say.

At 18″ x 36″, it’s pretty large, and I’d like to find a buyer because it’s taking up a lot of space in my little house. Listing is here.

Animated Van Gogh

17 Jun

A Polish film currently in the works features an animated treatment of the life of Van Gogh. The film, entitled Loving Vincent, features more than 63,000 paintings created in the artist’s style, rendered by a total of 80 artists.

It’s interesting that I turned up an item about both Van Gogh and Gauguin today. How many people know that they were once roommates? And that Gauguin thought Van Gogh’s famous impasto style was a shameful waste of expensive paint?

Dining Room Art

This is on the wall of my dining room. I couldn’t get the whole composition into the photo; it’s actually a rather large painting. This was my first experience using the water-mixable oil colors and I remember having trouble with the differences in how the canvas handled the medium:

Work in Progress

Here’s a photo of a painting I am doing–my first effort in oil paint on an Ampersand panel, rather than on canvas panel, gessoboard, or stretched canvas. I’ll post the finished piece when it’s done:
