I have been painting a new series of pieces for an upcoming art show (in February 2010). I am really enjoying these ones. I posted the first one last week. Here is the second in the series. I haven't signed it or varnished it yet, but you get the idea.
12 x 12 acrylic on canvas
They are all 12" x 12", acrylic on canvas. They are really cute in this size and I like the square style, too. I am definitely going to try this style on a larger canvas. I think they would look great as a big canvas on a big wall.
What I really love about these paintings is that I have wrapped the image around the edges. On all of my other paintings, I have finished the sides in black and that allows you to hang the painting without a frame. Most artists do it that way. But these paintings lend themselves to continuing the painting on the sides. Which means that you can enjoy the painting even if you aren't right in front of it.
Here are the two painting together on my mantle. You can see how the image wraps around the sides of the paintings.
Thanks for stopping by.
