Painting form and color

I didn’t paint anything last weekend. I am still working on the ‘saffron’ portion of my series, painting orange objects. My love brought me some salmon roses. The buds bursting with rosey goodness, but try as I might, I could not paint them.

Meanwhile, the online class in form and color from The School of Visual Arts started. It was so fun. I got to listen to a lecture and was given a design assignment. Visual problems to be solved! Fun, Fun.

Today, I finally decided on a composition for one of my lovely roses.

Passion with bowl, 12×12 oil on panel

It doesn’t read as orange in this rendering as it should. Perhaps I should add a yellow glaze. I am not 100% satisfied with the leaves or the bowl. I must press on. I will never finish the series with perfection in the way.

I also toned some boards today.

12×12 boards gessoed, sanded, and toned

I look forward to posting my class assignments when I finish them…

My best,

The work is inspired by an engagement with play and making peace with uncertainty. I work experimentally, using a digital video to explore painting. I use sound and moving images in non-traditional ways to reverse expectations of horror and comedy. I am drawn to the whimsical nature of self-discovery. I construct repeating narratives, often depicting varying scenarios of serenity, silliness, and reflection.
