New Painting: Squeeee!

Squeeee! | Oil on canvas | 24" x 36" | © 2012 Marilyn Fenn - I was working on this painting when my husband broke his leg (badly!).  Even before his accident, this painting was giving me fits.  I am finally done with it and quite happy.

And Another New Painting: “Taco and Feud in Asia Minor”

“Taco and Feud in Asia Minor” | Oil on canvas | 18″ x 18″ | © 2012 Marilyn Fenn -- This is another work that started out quite differently than it ended up. It was filled from corner to corner, but then I kept taking out more and more stuff. I'm much happier with it now. :)

Another New Painting: “If Women Walked on the Moon”

"If Women Walked on the Moon" | Oil on canvas | 12" x 12" | © 2012 Marilyn Fenn -- I think this is my favorite of my recent paintings. I'd love to paint this loose all the time -- or looser even. I don't know why it doesn't always seem possible. Constitutionally predisposed to tightness, I fear...

More New Work: “Bloop!”

"Bloop!" | Oil on canvas | 12" x 12" | © 2012 Marilyn Fenn -- This painting is sort of an experiment in soft and broken colors, and I do love the palette.  I hope to do more in soft tones like this in the future.

A Wonderful Review of My Paintings

The wonderfully talented Tuscon writer and artist +C.J. Shane has written such a delightful review of my work! :) You can read it at this link on GooglePlus.

More New Work: “Here We Go Again, August 29, 2012”

"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. ;)

New Painting: “Oops! ‘ScuseMe!”

"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!

Another New Painting: “Uplift”

"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. ;)

New Work: In Flight

“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.

New Work: The Cosmos Made Conscious

"The Cosmos Made Conscious" | Oil on canvas | 24" x 30" | © 2012 Marilyn Fenn -- I haven't posted in awhile, but I have been painting. I have about 12 new paintings to share; here is the first of my new series of abstracts that I have been working on since July.

Amidst the attention given to the sciences as how they can lead to the cure of all diseases and daily problems of mankind, I believe that the biggest breakthrough will be the realization that the arts, which are conventionally considered ‘useless,’ will be recognized as the whole reason why we ever try to live longer or live more prosperously.
