Still Lifes

A Copy After Picasso

Copy After Picasso's "Nude and Still Life, c. 1931" | Oil on canvas | 18" x 12" | © 2011 Marilyn Fenn -- On Google+, a very vibrant community of artists has been growing all summer and fall. A challenge was proposed to do a study after Picasso or an interpretation of one or more of his works. I thought this Picasso painting looked like a cartoon version of a Picasso, or what Picasso would paint if he were painting a cartoon version of his own work. It is such a fun image, I couldn't resist!

New Painting: The Woobie Offers Up Advice

"The Woobie Offers Up Advice" | Oil on Canvas | 16" x 12" | © 2011 Marilyn Fenn -- I did this painting a few weeks ago, right after my first white rabbit painting, "The Woobie Contemplates Revenge."

New Painting: The Woobie Contemplates Revenge

"The Woobie Contemplates Revenge" | Oil on canvas | 10" x 10" | © 2011 Marilyn Fenn -- Painting white things is really fun and challenging. For this painting, I placed a white rabbit stuffed animal in a white box...

New Painting: Hare Skin Rug (Bugs Bunny)

"Hare Skin Rug" | Oil on canvas 8" x 8" | © 2011 Marilyn Fenn -- Until my painting of Marvin the Martian a few days ago, I went nearly two weeks without painting (argh!)...I'm feeling the interruption, but trying to get back in the swing of things.

New Painting: “You Earthlings Have Made Me Very Angry”

"You Earthlings Have Made Me Very Angry" Oil on canvas | 8" x 8" | © 2011 Marilyn Fenn -- I love Marvin the Martian. He's probably my favorite cartoon character of all time, and now I've finally painted him.

New Painting: Fifteen Minutes for a Quarter

"Fifteen Minutes for a Quarter" | Oil on canvas | 5" x 5" | © 2011 Marilyn Fenn -- This is the third and final little rubber robot toy; this one is kind of a speed racer. He was both hard and fun to paint. I aimed again for looseness with these last two paintings; it continues to be a struggle to overcome 20 years of painting habits, but I'm not unhappy with these.

New Painting: It Was This Big!

New Painting: Catfish (pepper shaker)

"Catfish" | Oil on canvas | 6″ x 6″ | © 2011 Marilyn Fenn -- Finally, here is the companion to the Catbird painting! I aimed to keep this as fresh as possible with as few brushstokes as possible. I think the fishlips came out particularly well. :)
