Mono print of flower in my garden.
Work in progress.
Just about finished working on this. My goal is for a combination of abstract and realistic. I hope that adding the realistic cat figure forces perception of the abstract backing as grass.
Below are the various stages of the painting, from first marks to now.
I’ve been working on this painting for a couple of weeks now. It’s not quite finished, but close.
Based on a photo taken recently while walking in Thompson Park. I looked down and there it was . . .
This past 2nd Friday Longmont Arts Night was a lot of fun. Besides Mayor Leona and Bernie stopping by to chat for a while, Alex Tingley appeared and told me how he had the mono print portrait I did of him framed and hanging in his office. His friend Chuck had bought one of the prints a few years ago and gifted it to Alex.
I had not met Alex before I did the portrait. He’s a business man who has an office not far from my home, and I would spy his picture on a sidewalk placard advertising his business when walking Chester.
Walking in a park near my home, I noticed a memorial bench with offerings of flowers, balloons, and other items. Across the sidewalk was a tree festooned with cutouts and this flower.
I grabbed the image with my phone and have been working on this painting for a few weeks. I think it’s about done.
My latest painting after a hiatus spent doing mono prints. Captured image when walking the dog east of Main Street.
I had a lot of fun doing the leaves, then worked up the stroller and fence.
