Seven New Paintings (to be shown at EAST)

"Be Bop a Re Bop" | Acrylic on Canvas | 12" x 12" | © 2010 Marilyn Fenn -- I haven't posted much new work so far this year (!), but here are seven of my most recent paintings on canvas (1.5" gallery-wrap, to be exact). The first one, "Be Bop a Re Bop," was probably done in April. I painted out everything that didn't belong.

Real joy is becoming exceedingly rare among artists of any kind. And I have an idea that those who can and do communicate it are always people who have had a hard time. Then the joy has no smugness or self-righteousness in it, is inclusive not exclusive, and comes close to prayer.
