Wow!

I was a bit surprised yesterday with getting a Daily Deviation for Smoldering:
Smoldering by cogwurx

I usually try to thank everyone for the :+fav:'s and I'm going to attempt it eventually, but for now I want to say a general: Thank you so much for all the favs and +watches!

Would also like to thank OfOneSoul for suggesting it and jenthestrawberry for featuring my painting.

24"x24" Oil on Canvas

I love how my paintings and I work together. As usual I had an idea of where this piece was going, I had a sketch and everything. The Agate happened (my previous painting). So my initial concept wasn't working 100% with the new direction my work was heading. However, I persevered with the painting concept and once finished realized that it needed more. So long story short, this painting was flipped 180 degrees upside-down and voila! we have this piece!

Oil on Canvas

So this piece totally didn't turn out as expected. I don't know how to even describe the process. Anyway, this painting started out as a composition based on the shadows my window blinds caused on the blank canvas. I thought it was pretty awesome looking and did a quick painting as the sun moves surprisingly fast when you try to paint shadows. So there the composition sat for a few weeks while I was working on another painting. When I started to work on this one, I just didn't know where to take it. The lines and composition, though fun, really didn't fit my style and I didn't want to fight it just to finish a painting. It would have lacked purpose and looked forced. So I figured I'd just painting in the new style I'm working in and see what happens. I like the results A LOT. Anyway, I tried to get the lines to show up through the layers as best as I could, though you may not be able to see it in the photo.

Well this certainly was a journey. This one has more layers on it than I’ve ever worked on in a while. It is also the second or so painting whose initial composition was rendered one way and during the process completely flipped creating something truly unexpected. Say what again? Essentially, the painting started one way, then I flipped it 180 because reasons and I don’t have to explain my art to you. Ha! Serious, I’m really liking the direction my work is heading at the moment.

Festive
24"x24"
Oil on Canvas

Wow, was this one fun to paint! Totally intuitive. I wanted to just experiment with the movement and lines based on the style of my last two paintings. I'm liking this direction of my work as there is a lot more energy going on. So, this is the last painting of the year for me. Have a Merry Christmas and here's hoping that 2017 is a lot better than 2016!!

I'm very impressed by the variety of your work -- lots of interesting pieces that express lots of different ideas and emotions. That's hard to do.
