Have a few works 'in progress'. Often I find it easier to give them a title than finish them.
|SIGNS OF THE TIMES - acrylic and enamel on canvas 45 x 45 cm|
Maybe it sounds gloomy, but hey, what about the colour? Warm, optimistic, slightly subdued.... just like me. LOL (I can hear you people who really know me, giggling).
Next we have a depiction of my post on March 1st. It must be finished... I've signed it.
|RUST IS THE NEW BLACK - 30 x 30cm mixed media on canvas|
This includes rust-dyed fabric, odd rusty bits of metal that I got at the recycling depot, and acrylic paint. I wanted a 'graffiti on old walls' feel. Did I get it?
Of course, I occasionally revert to old habits, artistically speaking, and you might recognise the subject of the following work that is actually on the easel.
At the moment it is simply underpainting and will undoubtedly change enormously before the signature goes on, but you get the picture. Poor creature patiently waiting for... something?... rain perhaps, although we are getting plenty of that at present.
As you can see my easel has been well used. Hope that continues.
Well, I love your painting of the people fading into the background; my sentiments exactly.ReplyDelete
Yes, looks like graffiti; very effective!
The cow needs a buddy.:>)
I too really like your people one, made me want to rush to the paints and do something similar, and the rust one is fabulous.ReplyDelete
You have been busy and I really like them. Love that rusty piece; a little rusty metal never hurt anyone and it totally looks like graffiti on a wall. I'm liking the looks of the first one of fading people too and all that 'hidden' meaning is very perceptive. Can't wait to see it when it's signed. And the cow - not my fave since I'm not one for animal paintings, but I can appreciate the talent and patience to get it right!ReplyDelete
"Rust is the new black." Man, I wish I'd thought of that! Clever you.ReplyDelete
Oh Jo, these are gorgeous! Lovely colors and textures, Bravo! xoReplyDelete
Hi Jo, I really like your fading people as well! I actually feel like one of them at the moment and I'm hearing ya re-sales assistants :-)ReplyDelete
I love the first two! Thanks for showing us you WIP. I find them inspiring.ReplyDelete
It's nice to see another artist who works in a multiple of mediums!ReplyDelete
Love these Jo - but especially Signs of the Times is calling out to me =)ReplyDelete
Wonderful and beautiful colors and structures. Love the crackles. And specially the disappearing people into the background, marvelous.ReplyDelete
Jo, all of these are wonderful!ReplyDelete
Absolutely stunning. My favorite is the middle one, I love the rusty elements on it and I absolutely love the coloursReplyDelete
not only are you a prolific and fine artist...I also admire how you name your creations too Jo!ReplyDelete
"Sign of the Times" really speaks to me...you hit the nail on the head...I have some stories but I will refrain ;)
Your "Rust is the New Black" is deliciously textured and I agree...I have always had a 'thing' for rust and black ;)
I have a brand new easel...taking baby steps here...so far I am admiring the beautiful Beachwood...now that I have confessed I guess I'd better put it to use :)
Enjoyed this post very much...can you tell
I can definitely relate to the fading people.ReplyDelete
Beautiful, strong composition.
I always enjoy looking at your work.
These are all gorgeous, but I especially love your 'RUST IS THE NEW BLACK'... what a fantastic combination of colors, textures and rusty bits. Simply brilliant!ReplyDelete
These are wonderful! I love Signs of the Times! The punches of color really speak to me~ Beautiful work!ReplyDelete
