Oil Paintings

New Painting: Woman Chained

"Woman Chained" | Oil on canvas | 24" x 24" | © 2012 Marilyn Fenn -- "Woman Chained" - a gift from the muse...

New Painting: Mo Teef

"Mo Teef" | Oil on canvas | 12" x 12" | © 2012 Marilyn Fenn -- There's a barbeque joint in downtown Austin called House Park Bar-B-Q whose motto is "Needs no teef to eat my beef."  This title is a play on that motto, and also refers back to my last painting.  Hope you like!

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.

New Painting: Ovation in Pinks

Here is the first painting I have completed this year. It started as something even more abstract back in November, but I couldn't quite resolve it into a work I truly liked back then, so I worked it some more, and now it has become an abstract floral work. I really love how it came out!

New Painting: Hortical Mambo

"Hortical Mambo" | Oil on canvas | 16" x 20" | © 2011 Marilyn Fenn -- I ventured way out of my comfort zone in this painting, color-wise and otherwise, but in general I like the direction. Ostensibly, this is a painting of flowers, but the idea of flowers is really just something to give a bit of shape to the stuff of the painting--the paint, the colors, the shapes, the interactions.

New Painting: Frogs and Snails and Wiggledy Tails

"Frogs and Snails and Wiggledy Tails" | Oil on canvas | 18" x 18" | © 2011 Marilyn Fenn -- I got enchanted with the idea of using flowers as a way into shape creation for continuing my abstract paintings, but I was seduced by the representation of the irises and alstroemeria. The vase in this painting is part representation, part abstraction.

The final test of a painting, theirs, mine, any other, is: does the painter’s emotions come across?
