I just finished my latest paintings.There is something about the lack of refinement that is both attractive to me and vexing to me. There is a homey-ness, painterly feel; simplicity in the execution. Or maybe the desire to have simplicity in the execution. I will be doing more paintings like this.
In the end, it about beauty and color and things that are shiny.
Like the days spent playing in your mothers jewelry box or something. The preciousness and value in the gems are the ones you feel inside; the value is personal and internal.
Two paintings: Affordable Opulence and Opulence is an Illusion. Both by Karmen Brown (2012)
I normally get depressed around Valentine’s Day. But I have found focus in doing these illustration inspired by Valentine’s Day. It is still early. Who knows how I will feel come February 12th or 13th 😉
I think I have done all I can for the following illustration titled “Love Letter 1.”
I was able to get some art done today.
I started my 3rd Valentine’s Day collage/painting:
It still needs some work. I think it may need more tissue paper. Also, my woman’s face needs work. She just needs work in general.
Here is my Sunset ACEO.
I’m going to try a few more like this one.
This was done on 5″ x 7″ canvas panel. There is tissue paper, rhinestones, and chiyogami paper…glitter…and ribbon. This is the first of umm..14. Because Valentine’s Day is on the 14th! That means I have to get more canvas panel.
With this project, I wanted to just use tissue paper, but then I decided it needed something. Then it needed something more again! Have a bunch of blue hearts in my supplies so I will probably use those in the 2nd collage. Blue and Purple
Mod Podge is fun!
Here are some of the songs that played while I was working:
