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: Organics Sketch 25

"Organics Sketch 25" | Watercolor pencils on Stonehenge paper | 8" x 8" | © 2011 Marilyn Fenn -- My twenty-fifth sketch in this series! Two layers of web in this one, plus a ribbon with balls. I love the colors!

New Painting: Organics Sketch 24

"Organics Sketch 24" | Watercolor pencils on Stonehenge paper | 7.5" x 7.5" | © 2011 Marilyn Fenn -- This is another painting in which the web may look like many layers, but is all one piece.

New Painting: “I Got My Easter Egg!”

"Organics Sketch 23" | Watercolor crayons on Stonehenge paper | 7.5" x 7.5" | © 2011 Marilyn Fenn -- The title for this painting is from my favorite story about my husband.

New Sketch: “A Gathering of Small Redheads”

"A Gathering of Small Redheads" | Watermedia on Stonehenge paper | 8" x 8" | © Marilyn Fenn -- Here's my latest little sketch, though perhaps it is more of the germ of an idea for some future work. This one is not typical of the work I am currently doing, but I love the goofiness!

A Few More New Small Painting-Sketches

"Organics Sketch 17" | Watercolor crayons on Stonehenge paper | 8" x 8" | © 2010 Marilyn Fenn -- These could be considered studies for future larger works, but they are also (usually) little paintings or drawings in and of themselves. This painting is a further study into the basic organic forms I have been working with.

New Work: Organics Sketch 16

In art, one idea is as good as another. If one takes the idea of trembling, for instance, all of a sudden most art starts to tremble. Michelangelo starts to tremble. El Greco starts to tremble. All the Impressionists start to tremble.
