Okay, a few quick shots, because twitpic isn’t working. I may add to this after the initial posting. Depends on how busy I am between now and when I leave for tonight’s Art Walk.
I’ve been staring at this deep, deep, dark violet (8×10″) canvas I painted for a couple of months. Then, last night, I knew what to paint and here it is:
Then I started on a few others – a red 5×7″, a brown 4×4″, and another 4×4″ which I started by painting the face of solid black (I’ve since painted the edges forest green), and then there’s the 8×10″ off-green thing I’ve been looking at as long as that purple one.
And then I went to bed. Today I put another coat of red on the red one and then painted this on the green 8×10″:
I like painting the foreground as background, and painting the background over it. It’s like a study in negative space, and I like the effect.
This is what I did with the brown 4×4″ painting:
I tried to show part of the edge, here – these 4×4″ canvases have a 1.25″ depth, so I enjoy doing interesting things that play beyond the front face. here I just did simple extended purple corners, showing how the implied diamond just keeps on keepin’ on.
