View Full Version : Painting again!!!

08-15-2003, 12:45 PM
Hey hey!
Well, I'm painting again, and having a great time doing it. I've got two new ones for you. These will be part of a series of hopefully eight.
This one is Silentship . It's 24 x 36, oil, ink and wax paper on panel.

This one is Coversion . Same size as the other. Oil and wax paper on panel.
Hope you're all doing well.

Back to the grind.:D

You have one of the most delicate palette knifes i've ever seen. these are very sensual and fully realized.

Yay!! Exquisite as always.

I love when color defines separation of form. The application is exquisite. They are beautiful and sad at the same time, especially the first. Such a beautiful person silenced in the world. Does silentship symbolize citizenship -- except that we really have no voice? Well, despite, the beauty of us remains.

I look forward to the rest of the series.

Oh, I am trying to contact a friend up in ashville with some connections. :) I'll keep you posted.

hi, aurora :)

oooh these are nice. love the dark side of the face and the color combinations on the first, and those killer yellow/golden tones on the cheeks of the second.
thanks for posting! :)

ohhhhhh these are so wonderfully done. i've been in a painting rut the past couple days - thanks for the inspiration!!!!!!!!

08-15-2003, 07:20 PM
Like both, but the fish-eyed beauty of Coversion really speaks to me.

08-15-2003, 07:45 PM
Hey All!
I'm so glad these are working for you. I'm really enjoying painting them. Feels so good to get all that paint moving and squishing around again. The wax paper is fun too. I have loads of packaging material from the move and a lot of it is going to make its way into this series. What struck me as funny, and not so funny, really, was that I'd forgotten I was almost out of all my favorite colors of paint. Had to place a HUGE order today. lol. Oops.
Tam, you caught it. :) I was trying for subtlety. lol. Don't tell anyone. Shhhhh. lol. You definately need to let me know when you're back in Asheville again. We could go meet and hang for awhile.
Whatcha guys gonna do this weekend? Anything fun going on?

Ah! this is stunning! I saw your tinyhead in another post and was dying to know what it was.It did not disappoint.

I was wondering, you said this was oil,ink and wax paper on panel. I don't know anything about how you would use the wax paper. How is that done?


08-15-2003, 10:59 PM
Hi Heather! Thanks! I needed to change the tiny head. It's been the same for a long time now. lol.
I have no idea if there is a proper way to use wax paper. I just squeegeed it onto the wet paint and added a bit of paint on top of it. I think (hope) that the wax coating on the paper will be enough protection from the oils for the paper. It's an experiment, but something I've been wanting to try for awhile. :)

I just pulled up the list on Abstract and we were both at the top with those huge smily faces and exclamation marks. hahahaha Doesn't take much to make us happy does it?!!!

Some paint & some wood!!! hahahaah

So mysterious. I especially like the second and how the mouth just sort of secrets itself away.

08-17-2003, 05:37 AM
very nice.. I like. glad to hear your settled in.. i'll be doing the big move next month.. so I may be out for a while.

08-17-2003, 12:06 PM
I've been waiting to see more of your stuff---wonderful, as always...

08-17-2003, 02:45 PM
Very very mysterious, I love the thickness.

08-18-2003, 02:10 PM
so very nice to see you your work again my friend. of course, i like them yet they have left me wordless (a good thing).

as for the wax paper, melting it is really fun too. i have used an embossing gun for that and the effect is different and engaging.
for that matter i have melted saran wrap as well as the bags that onions come in...each has a different strong point depending on the effect you are looking for.

08-18-2003, 03:42 PM
what cool ideas, Rennie! I might have to get an embossing gun. I guess that would be safe around oil paints? At least as safe as heating wax was, you think?

08-18-2003, 03:52 PM
not sure about the safety but i know for me painting is an alchemical process and i must have heat...i have used the embossing gun with rubbing alcohol and not had any combustion incidents...

So sad...

Choosing silence despite the betrayal, the lesions on the surface publicly speaking (though the mouth does not) of the depth of hurt from the public attack...

I can relate to your images...

08-19-2003, 03:39 PM
good going, glad your up and "running" again.

08-19-2003, 07:27 PM
Inspiring :)
