Paintings with Circles and Ellipses

January 16, 2009


Ritual 22 – Acrylic on cradled panel
Abstract Painting

These two are a total departure from my usual paintings on panels. In most of them I like to allow the materials to guide the outcome, but in this case I just wanted to have a little fun with dots and ellipses.

I probably won’t use these together in a grouping. They look better lost in the mix.

    I love them and the color pallet. There’s something also Atomic Age-ish about them that I dig. They’re very organic, but would work well in a mid-century design setting.

    Circles, dots, ellipsises, these are cool. Sort of mid-century modern, Sputnik-like. Very nice.

    These are different for you – but I know you and know you don’t usually let them stand alone. Have you thought about doing a partner with contrasting shapes- lines or triangle like forms?

    Interesting departure, Martha. Yes, they would be nice in a mix with some of your other pieces!

    John, that’s cool – atomic-age-ish. I certainly grew up right smack in the middle of that era. Mid-Century Modern is my absolute favorite art period. When I do commissions I sometimes do something Modern with a capital M.

    Thanks Jeane! Glad you like ’em.

    Mary, Sputnik too. Yeah!

    Hey Vikki – a nice idea. I should consider playing around with that.

    Annette, it’s kind of fun to know that they can all be grouped and somehow work anyway.

I love getting your comments, so please don't be shy! Your feedback is valued.
