Day 31: 30 Days - 30 Paintings - Sept. 2016

Compilation of 30 Paintings in 30 Days - September, 2016



Here is a presentation of many of the paintings I completed during the September daily painting challenge.  It was a month of gifts and challenges - but it is always a gift to be in an inspired, creative space.

Thanks so much to all of you who followed each day - for your words of encouragement -and for sharing that sacred space with me.

Enjoy!

Day 30: 30 Days - 30 Paintings - Sept. 2016

Melding Body and Soul


Thank you for partnering with me on this thirty day painting odyssey. We have traveled to many places and utilized many visual components.  Today, it ends as it began...with the symbol of the Sri Yantra.  As can be seen in many of my paintings throughout the thirty days, the image of the Sri Yantra appears frequently in both obvious placement and more obscurely in the background.  As noted, mantras are geometrical designs based on the principles of sacred geometry and are often used for meditation.  [See Days 1 and Day 2 for more information.]

This piece utilizes a good deal of texture along with transparent pigment.  I see it as the melding between the physical and the spiritual.  To me, the 'spiritual' is represented by the image of the Sri Yantra, while the 'body' is represented by either a woman in a hooded cloak or a whale breaching the sea.  What do you see?

Day 29: 30 Days - 30 Paintings - Sept. 2016

Spiraling Out of Control


This painting is either spiraling out of control or it's having a bad hair day. :o)  In reality it features molding paste on 140 lb. watercolor paper.  To me it is whimsical, happy and makes me smile.  Who doesn't want more joy and fun in their life???

Day 28: 30 Days - 30 Paintings - Sept. 2016

Serenity 

I'm changing speeds today - veering from the intensity of color to something a bit quieter. Pure and simple, this is my favorite palette: Quinacridone  Gold (otherwise known as Azo Gold) and Phthalo Turquoise.  I felt the need for some deep serenity today and this is what poured forth...

Day 26: 30 Days - 30 Paintings - Sept. 2016

Standing Alone

Today's painting may be considered a companion piece to the Day 23 piece - 'Leather-Look",  The combination of materials in this mixed-media piece include:  acrylic paint; heavy-weight Indian rag watercolor paper; and corrugated coffee holder (thanks Starbucks). 

The key elements that unite both pieces are the yellow-ochre gessoed panels on which the pieces are mounted.  The two pieces have some similarities and hang nicely side-by-side but are not a diptych.

I enjoy the intricacies of layers of line and color throughout the piece.  Click on the photo to observe these details...
Enjoy!
