Flowered Collar

8x6 collage and oil on board
$195 s&h 5 - framed

When I was in school I had an assignment to paint any place from memory. I painted the bedroom I had when I was little. During critiques the instructor commented on a random red paint stroke at the edge of the bed. My feeble explanation was that I just felt like it. She said it was awesome, because that's what painting was all about. I still think of that red brush stroke and this painting, Flowered Collar, also reminds me of that red brush stroke.

Scrubby Squires

40x28 collage and oil on s/c
$2200

I started this painting probably about 16 years ago. It's gone through a couple of phases. I've hauled it with me through three different moves and finally finished it yesterday. After all this time I can finally say it's done. 
I had to touch up a section of the photo where I couldn't get rid of the glare. It's a bad touch up job. I have some beginners version of some photo software. I don't miss Photoshop very often, but there are times when it really would come in handy.

First Apartment - Stages and Phases




30 x22 mixed media on paper
I guess sometimes you're never happy or satisfied with your work. I had a wrestling match with this, and I have my theories as to why - some probably more conscious than others. Anyway I got a diary of my day, and I went to bed feeling like crap. :) ... but it doesn't end here. I'm also working on a painting. yey. I need to do just a face. What made me think I could be so grandiose?

Portrait vs. Figurative

Portrait vs. Figurative was starting to plague, so I decided to look it up.

From Wikipedia:
   ...the term figurative has been used to refer to any form of modern art that retains strong references to the real world.
     Figurative art is not synonymous with "art that represents the human figure," although human and animal figures are frequent subjects.

     Portrait painting can depict the subject 'full length', 'half length', 'head and shoulders' (also called a "bust"), or ‘head’, as well as in profile, "three-quarter view", or "full face",
    Among the other possible variables, the subject can be clothed or nude; indoors or out; standing, seated, reclining; even horse-mounted. Portrait paintings can be of individuals, couples, parents and children, families, or collegial groups.

Hmm, good to finally know!

"The aim of Art is to present not the outward appearance of things, but their inner significance; for this, not the external manner and detail, constitutes true reality."
Aristotle
