6"X6" ACRYLIC ON 7/8" cradled wood board
Yes, I did eat this PB&J! Truth be told, I didn't want to waste this much oozilage, so I took a quick photo and shoved it in my mouth before the shutter finished clicking. Okay, it was actually my Iphone and it doesn't make any noise but I took a bite fast.
Nope, not painted from life. We all know that I am not a hyper-realism painter. Believe me, if I could be I would be! But I they're just fun and people seem to like them as much as I do. Besides, who can resist a fresh PB&J with this much PBJ ooozzing??
I love my new Montana paints! The orangey-red in this painting is called "Chili Pepper", so hmmm, that's a good name. :D
This is three 16x20s=48"x20". I have been selling many abstracts on ebay, on the advice of an artist friend I did not put them under sunnyavocado name, I was told that I have too many different subjects and styles going on. Well. I guess that's just my personality. I like to experiment.
So, I decided to put this one here and any others that make the cut. You can find detail photos and see the auction, here:
So even though I am only posting once a month, I am actually still painting almost daily! I have been doing a lot of testing, experimenting and overall a lot of fun-having while my husband encourages me. I have now taken up the office space, the dining room, the garage/shop, the outbuilding down by the water and the corner of the bedroom...Oy.
So here are a couple of things I worked on. This is an 18x24":
"Ice Crystals" because that's what it reminds me of. Blues, Pure White, Silver. Oh yeah. AUCTION
Hey! I am still here! I've been doing lots of R&D. :D
I mean playing around with materials. (and having a great time!) Resin is my new love, and I have returned to my first love-abstract. And Voila! My first 2 hybrids that passed:
These photos have a CRAZY amount of shine, as resin is like a glass coating. I thought I did take photos of the abstracts before the resin, but they were not finished bcuz I kept playing with them and THEN forgot to take new pics. So...you'll have to trust me and the quality of my work rather than these photos. ;) I am so very happy with these!!
There was a lot of texture from the paint and mediums, then the resin, so there is a 'relief' to these that I really like. Here are a few close ups:
