new pictures on friday

paintings about sitting: low chair, 2011, dyed coffee filters and acrylic on canvas, 50cm x 50cm

I started a new series titled Paintings About Sitting today. I really, really enjoyed doing these, from dying the coffee filters with food coloring to cutting and deco-patching the pieces onto the canvas and finally adding in my sitting ladies. Fun, fun, fun!

i made petals

stacks and stacks of rose petals

in the initial stages of this picture, i felt like an imposter had trespassed and left their painting on my easel. this is beautiful but so not me

and then there was the drippage. now this is me

this was actually the first canvas i covered. at this point it was just me playing with colored coffee filters and glue

i thought it might work better sideways. the dome-like structured looked a little too silly for my liking

my third petal-strewn canvas next to a stack of unassuming frames. they're next.

i love the size of these 50cm by 50cm canvases: easy to stretch, easy to move around the studio and so much fun to experiment with
