Apparently nothing is sacred in the world today, I was doing a google search for image references for my coaster painting series and looked up “whale tail”. To my surprise there came up a lot of girls with their thong panties sticking out of there jeans looking like a whales tail just before it sinks back into the depths of the ocean. The pictures where almost all candid, which disturbs me but that is a different discussion.
I am a little scared to google “raven’s beak”, all kidding aside here is the painting that came out of that search:
Whales Tail in Blue
Oil on found coaster
3.5” x 3.5” 88cm x 88cm aprox.
For sale – 50$ usa + shipping now on etsy
Buy this and get a chuckle every time!
Now that I am thinking about it, I think it would be funny to do a diptych of actual whale tail and girl while tail side by side. Artsy though nothing crude 🙂
Halleluiah, the revival has begun! Pull up a seat to the second coming as paint to brush to canvas will cleanse the soul. AMEN, HALLELUIAH. A dynamic truth to those who believe will be lifted up, amen and halleluiah!
This is the time to spread out, have a revival, and get back to basics of the worship of art and philosophy and the anxiety of the physiological state…
Formal; emerging; outsider…
New work is playing in mind and canvas, take a peek to informally named Been Pushed: too far
Under-color: I hate working from a white canvas, this was going to be a different painting original
Next steps will be corrections of under painting, glazing and more corrections and glazing. May be a part of a series.
For redemption, open your hearts and join the revival…
Re(focus) is no good if there is no action to back it up so I broke the bounds that have been holding me back and forced myself back into the work I love so. As the shackles fall from my wrists and ankles I took off running as if something big and dangerous was chasing me, nipping at my heels. Four (4) new works started or restarted…
The first painting I started working on is a nude that had a base laid down some time ago, some blue outlines to indicate where I wanted the main figure to be on the page was also laid down. As a start I started by adding a wash of paint with drips and splatters to get the color vibe going for then started to block in the figure keeping a painterly and loose style through the image. I felt that it got to a good point and I left it yesterday as it is in the picture below.
Today I went back at it, I fought with the breasts a bit (sounds more fun than it really was) under the hands that I had already blocked out. I pretty much had to paint over some of what I liked of her left had to get the feeling and light I wanted for the breast/cleavage area. I also worked on the torso for a bit and added some cooler tones behind her elbow and curve of her waist and added some more splatter to the overall image. I will post some images of this phase when I can…
I really did not mean for this post to be a talk about process of this painting but I don’t think it is a bad thing especially for the re(focus), talking about what’s on the mind is good…
I have a few commissions lined up that I am going to start in the next few days, along with an opportunity to hang a few paintings at a trendy place downtown, more on that when I have things up though!
Boy, this has been a rambley post, I will shut up now… oh if anyone wants to know more , have questions or wants to commission me out/buy a piece please leave a comment!
