Our vacation interrupted my rhythm of painting, and shooting pictures, and blogging…so here it is late September, and I have finally gotten the paintings I finished before vacation shot, and am just now getting them posted.

This one is a fairly fanciful voyage into creating a third piece to fit in between two of my other recent pieces to create a triptych.

Here’s a small mockup of the triptych:

Golden Path Triptych

This piece is a sort of fractal enlargement of a section of my “Behind the Wall” piece; this is called “Grandma was a Stromatolite:”

The painting is not on a surface, but on a plane which is imagined. It moves in a mind. It is not there physically at all. It is an illusion, a piece of magic, so that what you see is not what you see.

Comments on My Paintings
  • This painting is half way to abstraction, it’s there in the flow of energy. But it must have been very time-consuming to do! So much detail! The eye focusing on the visual world, rendering a version of it in the painting. When I look at a painting, in any style, in any genre, if a poetry emerges, then it’s like wow. Your work is infused with poetry, Marilyn.
