"Here We Go Again, August 29, 2012" | Oil on canvas | 16″ x 12″ | © 2012 Marilyn Fenn -- Here's another new painting that started out quite differently than it ended up. I was working on it during the time Hurricane Isaac was building in the Gulf Coast, so I guess you could say that became an influence. ;)
"Oops! ScuseMe!" | Oil on canvas | 16″ x 12″ | © 2012 Marilyn Fenn -- I got a bit bolder with the colors on this painting. This was intended to be a continuation of the same visual idea from the painting I posted yesterday. The fact that it isn't quite seems to be proof of something, but what exactly, I'm not sure. Another goofy composition, but I love it!
"Uplift" | Oil on canvas | 12" x 16" | © 2012 Marilyn Fenn -- It may be hard to believe, but this little painting took about a week. It started out vertical, with less stuff, but even goofier than this, and it just took that long to resolve the composition to my liking. Once I got it to this point, I was thrilled, and thought, "Oh, this is it! This will be my new signature style!" Tune in tomorrow to see whether I was right or not. ;)
“In Flight“ | Oil on canvas | 16″ x 12″ | © 2012 Marilyn Fenn -- In my next piece, I was aiming to create a painting with some nice space in it (and I do like the space here). Then it got goofy. I do like the way the wobbly stack of shapes in the lower left quadrant serves as a counterpoint to elegant cloud-like forms.
"Food Forest" | Acrylic on canvas | 24" x 30" | © 2012 Marilyn Fenn -- I really enjoyed painting this new work of three artichokes in three stages of growth as seen in an urban food forest. This painting will be part of my work at the one-night only 4th Annual GROW Forth! art show benefiting Urban Patchwork Neighborhood Farms here in Austin, happening this Saturday.
