2017 art update

I’ve been getting back into painting and drawing over the last year and a bit. It’s been amazing to do something creative just for pleasure, without the business side of things attached. As much as I’m enjoying it, I am in no danger of throwing aside my writing and starting down the equally long road to be a professional artist any time soon.

IMG_1771My dad wanted a higher resolution, one spot for all my artwork, so this post is that. This oil pastel work is really the first representational thing I’ve done in a while. I’ve been working on patterns lately.

 

 

 

 

 

 

I’ve been working with a lot of patterns and sheets. These are jelly-plate prints, cut and reassembled.

 

The first one was a proof of concept thing. The seond was the same thing with paint added after the fact. I really like the hexagon as one of the most complicated nesting shape.

 

Here are two 22×28″ canvases that I’ve finished without painting on top. I just like the color combinations.

 

And these are the same basic method in both abstract and more representational.

I’ve spent a lot of this summer building up sheets of color to use as my palete, but some of them I will probably like too much to ever use as material. I have a lot of these in various colours.

 

So I’ve been busy. Just not doing finished work.
