This blog is my portfolio of artwork, a journal about my process of making art...and the things that I have no words for...

What I did on my day off...

Bones of the Earth, the Corrosion of Metal, April 23, 2010
acrylic, monotype, sumi-paper on canvas
24 x 8 inches.

I finished this painting today... it was one that started out very different from how it ended up, it was once a delicate pale green with the plan to be mossy and evolved into this ancient looking monolith of gears and gadgets, shapes and lines (oh, I had a good time today!) It was nice being home today, I relaxed, took care of myself (I've been having lots of trouble with Fibro, allergies, and the latest manifestation of peri-menopausal crap this week, when it rains it pours!) Tonight we (my Fred and I) attended the Eastwood Rotary Club CNY ART Showcase at The Links at Erie Village in East Syracuse for a fundraiser for the local Ronald McDonald House, we each donated two paintings, and they sold well. (it's always a good feeling to see one's artwork go to a good home!) We also had our artwork on display on tables in the room, I brought ten paintings, and on a whim, I put my portfolio of photographs out for browsing... while I ate dinner, I spied on people leafing through it, and it seemed they were enjoyed by all. It's always a good experience to meet and greet, make new connections, and learn what to do to prepare for the next time we're invited to participate...fun was had by all!

It's been a long day for me, although I'm very tired I'm still too keyed up from the experience, and need to settle in...

A very strong piece. Definitely one I would like to see in person!

I really like the design and textures. You have a strong viewpoint and this "reads" well!

Just reading the materials list for this piece gets me inspired...I agree with JB and Seth. There are just some pieces that I want to look at from every direction and the texture here makes me want to touch.
