New Abstract Work Listed

22 Jun

“Jungle Cat 2” is my latest abstract work. It’s acrylic on birch wood cradle, meant to be hung without a frame as all the sides are painted in copper metallic paint. I couldn’t accurately capture the true interplay of color and texture, due to the use of a lot of shiny gold and copper metallic paint. It’s a lot richer in real life. Here’s the link to the listing at Etsy.

Sold!

7 Jun

Several new works have sold recently at my shop, including this one, this one, and this one. (Scroll down to see the work that’s been sold.) Everyone keeps telling me I sell my work for much too cheap, and I tend to agree, but I know a lot of people who started out selling their work online for ultra-cheap, then gradually increased prices when they built up a following. They tell me  that’s the way it’s done!

At any rate, I’m too old and cranky for the gallery scene, so my shop is what it is.

 

 

More New Work — Abstract

Two new paintings by SKColeArt in mid-century abstract style. 

This one is another entrant in my series of meditations on mid-century Abstract Expressionism:

"Deep Purple" water color and ink on an acrylic impasto underpainting

And a tribute to another mid-century type of art, that of the Italian minimalist painter, Giorgio Morandi:

BotlesAbstracts

“Bottles” water color, ink on archival paper, over an acrylic impasto underpainting.

Both are 18″ x 24″ on Strathmore 140 lb. archival paper and both are for sale in my Etsy shop.

Here’s a little bit about Giorgio Morandi.
