Feeling Color

16 x 20 inches Abstract Oil Painting on Canvas

Abstractionism Series

Sold

Every once in awhile I have to get away from doing detailed 
work and let loose with the paint on an abstract. That said,
the best thing about doing this kind of work is getting paint all
over me and my bare feet. I call this playing in the paint!

Only an artist can imagine what it must feel like to
be totally naked and having paint poured on your body,
therefore the idea was born for this painting, "Feeling Color."

Does each color have it's own feeling?
I don't know......yet!  LOL!
I may have to try this someday!
Enjoy!

This abstract is full of thick impasto paint 
to created great textures and dimension and
enhanced with a bit of metallic pale gold.

Lovers Serenade 
After Tamara de Lempicka

14 x 14 inches Oil Painting on Canvas

Art within Art Series

SOLD



This was a fun painting but I got so much into detail 
that it took a very long time to finish. Loved every minute if it!!
The figures had so many changes to my taste that they really
look nothing like de Lempicka's. The curtains are also from 
another de Lempicka painting and I thought they would 
look great with this composition.

I painted on Valentines Day and for all the Lovers out
there. I thought it was a nice twist that the female was serenading
the man. The painting on the wall is one of my favorites of
Tamara's and thought the kiss was a good choice for this piece.

Enjoy!

Tamara de Lempicka (Łempicka) (May 16, 1898–March 18, 1980), born Maria Górska in Warsaw, in was a Polish Art Deco painter and "the first woman artist to be a glamor star."

Lempicka is best known for her Art Deco-styled portraits. Sexy, bedroom-eyed women in stylish dress are rendered in haunting poses. Perhaps it was her own dramatic life mirrored in her art. Married twice to wealthy, she moved from her native Poland to Russia, and then to Paris. In 1918, she studied painting at the Academe de la Grand Chaumiere, and was privately tutored by Maurice Denis. In 1925 she exhibited her works at the first Art Deco show in Paris. She moved to America in 1939 with her second husband, Baron Raoul Kuffner. Her works appeared exclusively at many galleries and museums, but her artistic output decreased. In 1960 she changed her style to abstract art and began creating works with a spatula. After her husband died in 1962 she ceased painting and moved to Mexico.

Sold - Commission

 I have been so busy trying to catch up on all my commissions.
This is number II with a few changes from the original.
My collector collects paintings of women reading so she 
wanted a book in Jeanne's hand. I also changed the frame on 
Modi's portrait. Just a few simple changes to make a new
original.

that has already been sold, please contact me for

The Ladies Lounge - After Kees von Dongan



The Ladies Lounge 
After Kees von Dongan

11 x 14 Oil Painting on Canvas

Art within Art Series

I am always looking for new artist that I can study
and paint with. Kees von Dongan caught my eye.
I love his flair for beautiful woman caught my eye.
However, I could not decide on just one or two
of his beauties so I decided to use four in one painting.
They all look so relaxed and mellow. Nice wine, art and
music to enjoy together. The painting on the wall is
Kees Van Dongen: Tango or The Tango of the Archangel,
ca. 1923 - 1935 and a very interesting composition.
Here is a beautiful site with may of his paintings that
 I used for this piece.
If you have an artist that you would like to see in an
Art within Art painting other than the artists I have already
painted please leave a comment or send me an email.
You will not be under any obligations to purchase the
painting.  I like to have input from my fans and collectors.

Kees van Dongen, it turns out, was a Dutch painter, born in
 Rotterdam on 26 January 1877, at, according to Astrodatabank,
7am. He moved to Paris in his twenties and achieved some success,
using inspiration from the raw sensuality he found in that great city.


Van Dongen can be seen an observer of society, from the bohemian
world through to the “cocktail age,” his work is influenced by the
scandalous and urban world of cabaret, the circus and women, very
different from the landscape Fauvism (often associated with this
movement) and later ventures into the Parisian high society and his
 representation of the Roaring Twenties.  For more information in this
exhibit, please visit The Montreal Museum of Fine Arts.
