Okay, so I'm looking through the entire inventory of photos we have on our computer, and I can only find a handful of my paintings in our files. I stopped painting professionally even further back than I had stopped printing monotypes, and apparently the only photographic record I have of them are printed photos...can't find those computer files anywhere. Of course, that's not saying a whole lot, as organizing photos on the computer has never been my strong point. Computer whiz I am not.
Anyway, here are a couple of pictures of some paintings I have done in the past.
I had a lot of fun doing this music series. I had a solo show that was all music-oriented...it was fun to play (no pun intended, at least not initially) with that theme.
These are small paintings on paper, but I also did a HUGE panel painting that was 7 feet tall x 6 feet wide. I wish I could find those photos....
This was a large, combined panel piece that I did when I was a resident at the Millay Colony in Austerlitz, NY many years ago. The bark-looking stuff below the mini photos of my ancestors in the blue square is, indeed, bark. It was peeling from the alder trees on premesis, so I incorporated it into my painting. I was fascinated with how paper-thin and velvety smooth it could be when soaked in water and peeled apart. Fond memories.
I don't have a very clear shot of this painting, but here it is anyway. I had a great time creating the images based on Hawaiian quilts (this piece was done shortly before we were transferred here to Hawaii).
Hopefully sometime in the near future I'll be able to get back into painting again. I miss doing it.
