Illustration Friday - Moon

This is The Moon card that I made for a majors only Black History tarot deck called "I Have A Dream Tarot". The Moon in a tarot deck is always my favorite card. The Moon in the tarot symbolizes illusion and mystery - the dark night of the soul.

"Time Changes Everything" - Abstract

This is the second abstract I did yesterday. It is 30X22 mixed media with collage on paper. I was thinking about the fact that most people do not "get" my paintings - well the abstract ones. That used to bother me but I realize that is not the audience I am trying to reach with my abstracts - I need to look at this in a new way. I think I am doing this by sending out my portfolio and trying to do some marketing (it's about time!!!!!).

"What Zyg Taught Me" - New Acrylic

I painted 2 new full sheet (30X22) abstracts today. I painted this painting on a sheet that my art friend Zygmund Jankowski used to do some little line drawings when we were talking about space - shallow vs deep. I put a thin wash over the line drawings so they peek through the bottom left side of the painting. I am very happy with this one!

I also worked on my art portfolio and am sending it out tomorrow to the Frederick Gallery - I will keep my fingers crossed - I really need to get into a Gallery! I also sent my portfolio to the Noyes Museum to become a signature artist.

Another New Abstract

This one is acrylic on canvas - I need to make the move to canvas but I do love painting on paper. This painting is 24X20 and I did like painting it.

New Watercolor

I had to drop off a painting at the Noyes Museum on Monday and I brought my new camera so I could take some photos of the So. Jersey land/sea scape. Well the green head flies were so bad I couldn't get out of the car and ended up only getting 4 photos. This was one of them.

I will be in a show at Noyes Museum that will be running until the end of August - I will post about this when I get back from vacation.

New Watercolor

This is a new watercolor I just finished and also the photo I used for reference (I did get a new camera). I added some mountains to the painting and also more foreground. These type of paintings are a challenge for me because it is summer and everything is soooo green. I never follow the photo too closely - I just use it as an initial idea - then the painting takes over. I will be putting this and some other paintings on e-bay after my July vacation.
