Abstract Art

Fourth (and last, so far) in This Series

Untitled (2015-008) - Oil on panel - 12" x 10" - © 2015 Marilyn Fenn I do love this painting, and I have enjoyed creating this series. After these first four, however, my interests took a turn, which you will see in the coming days (if you stay tuned).

And Another New Painting

Untitled (2015-007) - Oil on panel - 12" x 10" - © 2015 Marilyn Fenn I may—or may not—work on this one some more, but I haven't yet (and it's been about 3 months), so this may be done.

Another New Painting in the First Series of the Year

First of a New Series (in a Series of New Series)

Untitled 2015-005 - Oil on birch panel - 12" x 10" - © 2015 Marilyn Fenn Here is one of my first paintings of this year. Doing a lot of experimenting--trying different things.

Jackie Tileson

I could fall into one of Jackie Tileson’s paintings and wander around for hours or days. She creates a deep ethereal space filled with wonderful surprises of different types of imagery: explosions of paint, drips, amorphous shapes, graffiti, circles, loops, and fractal imagery — different vocabularies of expression skillfully combined in one large space.

How to Destroy (and Recover) a Painting in 10 (or so) Not-So-Easy Steps

“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.

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.

I prefer drawing to talking. Drawing is faster, and leaves less room for lies.
