“Mollycoddling the Collywobbles” | Oil on canvas | 18″ x 18″ | © 2012 Marilyn Fenn - This painting started out very differently than it ended up. In a month full of daily interruptions (far more then the usual tolerable level of daily interruptions), I had a hard time keeping the same frame of mind while I worked sporadically on this canvas.
"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.
