Have you ever noticed a painting within a painting in your creations, or other artist’s creations? They can be quite inspiring. In fact, my teacher has taken many of his paintings that don’t work, and chops them up to find little masterpieces.
Many times my Internet viewers have told me my art shows so much better in person. One reason for this observation is everyone’s computer will experience different color; some are warmer, cooler brighter or duller, but another reason it is you perceive the painting as a whole not as its parts. It is difficult to see the fine nuances of texture, elevation, stroke and layers of color on the Internet.
If you find me in a gallery, you will see my face very close to the art. I love to become the fly on the wall, discover all the secrets, the genius of other artists. This can only be found by being very close as well as the unity discovered when standing afar.
The images above are details of my painting “Day of the Eucalyptus”. “Day of the Eucalyptus” is my twenty-fourth painting of my #paint52 challenge, measures 15” X 15”, Atelier Interactive Acrylic and oil on vellum, price $525.
