New Work

 

I’ve been taking a slightly different direction lately – but all with the same theme.  Florals or garden scenes with drippy and runny paint streaks.  Yes, it looks abstract, but it’s also representational .  In my paintings I have been focusing on rediscovering some moments of clarity amid a confusing jumble of emotions.  The two digital hydrangea paintings above are just one example of the new work.  Rather than letting the drips conceal the images, I use them to highlight the more dramatic colors.  You can also see that in my acrylic paintings like the ones below:

Multiple floaters on a green sea.  I love the “ghostly” aspect of the top jellies.  I gave each one it’s own personality with different shades of orange, yellow, and red.

This one is also available on Society6 – think shower curtain!

This was my first jellyfish – the one that started the obsession.  I like the way it popps off the background – it gives it some real dimension and that effect gives the jelly some substance.

It is available in my Society6 shop.

In keeping with the theme of underwater creatures.  Here is this little floater, all illuminated in golden shades.  The background is one I frequently use – a batik watercolor converted into a digital image.  I like combining the tactile nature of “real” artwork with the control and effects of digital work.

I am fascinated by the grace and lightness of jellyfish, and have composed a few new digital prints of these ethereal creatures of the deep.  I’m sure there are many more to come in the future – partly because winter is setting in here in the Northeast and I’ll be indoors more.   What better time to dream up these gorgeous creatures?
