Oh, just stop it!

The Christmas Card Project, 2017, has come to an end.  These are the final three greetings that will be sent out!  Whew!  On to new stuff…or old stuff on new canvas….we’ll see.

Chicanery Continued

The Christmas Card Project is drawing to a close. If you’re unfamiliar, a couple of weeks ago I got the brilliant idea of sending hand painted oil on canvas greeting cards to my friends during the holidays. I’ve completed 15 and I may try to complete three more….I might be running out of ideas for greetings that are even loosely recognizable as being Christmas greetings, but I shall press on!

 

Remember when I didn’t finish this?

I sat this piece aside for a few days, added the reflections of those eyes in the shiny black tile floor and then never photographed it!  Ha!

Adaptation: 404 Page Not Found, 2017, oil on canvas, 36″ x 36″

I just dove into my next piece and didn’t go back – – – until today.  Adaptation, it’s such a lovely piece once you get used to the idea of it!

and after.

My muse introduced me to the M-Theory of quantum physics.  I am always amused by things that I cannot quite comprehend.  That theory posits there are 11 dimensions, and that time is composed of crystals formed by three dimensional equilateral triangles, the smallest length of which (the Planck length) is so small – – – well, the idea confounds me.  But, that’s why we have a crystal, front and center here in this piece.  And yes, while I rarely make statements about any of my paintings, I will say, this crystal is meant to represent time.  Everything else is up to you!

before…(after is probably nearer than I think)

Sometimes I feel like, well, in the case of me and my art-making, that painting is a little like constructing a sentence.  The piece needs a subject…without a subject, well, you don’t really have anything….  That’s because, from my perspective, I work with a subject in mind….but, I’m painting along and suddenly I’ve come to realize that I do not know what the subject is here….it’s just too ambiguous I think.  And, there.  I’ve said nothing as well.
