Title: Salmon Flats Medium mixed media on paper Size 15x11 " unframed $350.00 This painting is suggestive of a cityscape, with elements suggestive of a cityscape, yet it retains a subjective abstract quality. This allows it to be at home in a variety of environments and can fit almost anywhere to brighten up your home or office. It pairs well with others in this series or can be framed as a stand alone piece Note: The original painting has deckled edges and can be float mounted and comes unframed. I have found that most prefer to choose their own frames and matting.

Lovely painting. And I agree with you... A lot of people prefer to choose their own frame or mounting.

 

Nice!

Thanks again smb For some reason I love painting on this heavy paper, the way the paint and brush react to it is wonderful.  Also the paintings can be shipped  flat; I prefer not to roll original art.

This one lends itself to other versions too and I took advantage of that and made smaller versions, like these two. Each is a good composition in itself, but make a connected series.

I love to deep dive into a painting, it often developes into a relationship with other paintings, as in this case where one of the versions that reminded me of clothes lines, showed up again in an unrelated, yet similar piece I call Pray. See if you can tell which one sparked my imagination.Pray.thumb.png.7367cf9bc0471cbfcd0ebfb24ba0c17a.png

I used to love rough and heavy hand-made watercolour papers for my pastels...

I wonder if my kids have left me any, after three years away from the Philippines?  (...'Find out when I finally get back there!) :rofl:

I hear you  and am fortunate that my children never touched my art supplies. Unfortunately they do not have any natural inclinations toward art either, which makes talking with them about it impossible.

On another note,  I really love BFK Rives papers, they are archival, heavy, durable, affordable and super versatile accepting many mediums and you can even paint and you can draw or print on the back without any show or bleed through. I use it for all my paintings on paper. You can even purchase a roll.

Ah... Well, at least I am lucky in that respect. Jenny and Michelle are both a lot better artists than I am!

In my family My father's mother was a pretty god artist, unfortunately no one ever kept any of her paintings. I only saw one and my father was alos really good at drawing, but as much as I begged him, he never did anything with it, so though I was never encouraged; I am the first and only member of my family to actually go to college, pursue a degree in art and actively work at it. They inspired me in spite of themselves, LOL
