New Painting: Frack This!

"Frack This!" | Oil on canvas | 12" x 12" | © 2012 Marilyn Fenn -- I didn't paint this to be about fracking, but I had just read an article about it, and the title seemed to fit this piece. I try to keep politics out of my paintings, but they seem to creep into my titles. Or I could have called it something about "pressure." Whatever.

New Painting: Flamingo Mallets

"Flamingo Mallets" | Oil on canvas | 12" x 12" | © 2012 Marilyn Fenn -- This is, for all practical purposes, my first red painting...

New Painting: Sugar Max

"Sugar Max" | Oil on canvas | 12" x 12" | © 2012 Marilyn Fenn -- I wanted to do one more new painting before hanging the show at Austin Art Space. I started this one with the intention of creating a 4th more geometric style work like the ones that started me off on my latest series of abstracts...

New Painting: Talk About Art!

"Talk About Art!" | Oil on canvas | 12" x 12" | © 2012 Marilyn Fenn -- And now for something completely different... I haven't lost my mind, really. But, this is not quite like anything I've done before, except for maybe one or two very old crazy abstract works...but not really even like those.

New Painting: The Valley of O

"The Valley of O" | Oil on canvas | 12″ x 12″ | © 2012 Marilyn Fenn -- It's kind of amazing to me what can happen in the studio of an abstract painter. If you let the painting talk to you, you can discover what it wants to be.

“For the Love of Art” Exhibition at Austin Art Space

I will be the guest artist at Austin Art Space during the "For the Love of Art" exhibition, which will be on view for most of the month of February. :) I will be showing all new work that has been created since late last fall. Come out for the opening on Feb. 9th, 6-8pm, Austin Art Space. If you'd like to meet me there during gallery hours on another day, just let me know.

The greatest work of an artist is the history of a painting.
