Half a Face

HALF A FACE (2017)

Acrylic painting, 11″ x 14″.

Another abstract on canvas panel. You can see with the rougher surface how the lighter amounts of paint stand out on almost individual dots or squares of the surface. I like the contrast of this with solid bright clean brush strokes. I see half a head with an ear in the orange on the right, hence the title. 

Untitled, another abstract

UNTITLED (2017)

untit600

Acrylic painting, 12″ x 16″.

This is on canvas panel which is an interesting surface to paint on. It’s relatively heavy and sturdy which is good for me, because I paint on the floor without an easel or anything to hold the painting still. The surface isn’t as nice as a more expensive version of canvas, but it’s fun to paint on a slightly rougher surface and see how the paint responds.

 

Infancy

INFANCY (2017)

infancy600 - Copy

Watercolor painting, 15″ x 11″.

I’ve been leaning back into more abstract painting recently. Sometimes I try and convince myself I can paint more realistic things, but ultimately I think painting abstract is my wheelhouse. I named this Infancy because of the gentle pinkish colors and the main central shape makes me think of tubes or an umbilical cord.
