Today’s painting is from a few years ago. It is one of my earlier efforts in combining Mason jars and maple leafs.
They’ve finally made it out of their cocoons!
Today’s Throwback Thursday is circa 1971. I had been quite ill, bedridden for several months. My parents knew I loved art, so they bought me a paint-by-numbers set to help me pass the time. It consisted of a number of plastic containers of various hues, a rather wonky brush, and two pieces of cardboard printed with enumerated topographical outlines of clowns. I know that clowns have become symbols of fear for some; however for me in 1971, this painting began a link in the chain of creating that I’m still working on today.
Today’s acrylic is from a few years ago. It marries my interest in small watercraft, and the aesthetic of the Mason jar.
Today’s post is the finished version of “Orange Peek OH”. It says its spring on the calendar, but we keep on getting snowed on here in the Maritimes. I’m hoping that soon these marbles will be able to migrate out of cups and into the backyard.
Today’s post is from an old exercise where you paint a portion of a painting trying to be true to the original, and then do another version where you use subjective colour. Vinnie would understand.
