Fun Time in the Studio

September 13, 2010

“Key West Series” – Acrylic on Canvas
Each Canvas 4 x 4 x .75″

A collection of these little paintings just came back from the Key West gallery that closed, along with the panels that I still have to take out of the box and put into my inventory. These will go up in my Etsy shop soon, even though I’m not ready to devote a lot of time to promoting the shop right now.

Lots going on here in the studio. I’ve been working 24/7 on several series of digital images for an interior design client. They are photographs, but I’m creating digital collages with them. This is an example of the type images I’m working on. Since these are for design clients, they give me a little more freedom to do things that aren’t my usual working style.

You’ve no doubt seen my textures from the crumbling downtown buildings and also my photographs of pears. So now I’m putting them together.

I hope your week is starting out with all kinds of inspiration and energy. This fall weather is helping around here.

    These tiny treasures are so wonderful…and they do look like fun. I love the combination of backgrounds and foregrounds. Imagine and Live in Peace, Mary Helen Fernandez Stewart

    I love your small paintings! Aren’t the small canvases so much fun?! Such a lovely group of artwork! Love the digital piece with the texture and pears as well! How wonderfully that goes together. Hope you are able to share the rest of the digital works with us at some point that you are putting together.

      Question…what kind of pen or tool do you make the heavier marks with in the smaller pieces above? Is it an oil pen? I’ve wanted to make fine marks on some of my art and wasn’t sure what would work on top of acrylics.

    Martha the diversity in your creative work sometimes has my head spinning to keep up. Love this collection with their bright playful colours and feel.

    I have been reading along even though I haven’t had a chance to comment. Your musings about gallery and online galleries has been of particular interest. I am not sure which way to step next. Should I put my efforts into online present or getting gallery space or both? I sense that the field is shifting but there is a need and a desire by buyers of art to have both. How do I openly and successfully the relationships between various retail venues? These are the question I am asking myself. If you have any wise answers I would love to hear them.
