"monster movie" 6"x6" acrylic and enamel on canvas (sometimes, a lot of times, i just like to randomly play with paint, colors, and forms. to make this, i was playing around with a few colors and thought to myself that pink and puke green would look good together. when i started adding in the green, i noticed that i had a godzilla-ish blob in front of me and decided to play on that given the fact that i'm a big fan of old school monster imagery. i gave him a little more depth by adding a few other colors, outlining him, and a little dot for an "eye" of sorts. i should have added some fire breathing for good effect but i decided to keep it a little on the mellow side. he's a nice monster! all in all, a fun piece to make)
"tuesday" 6"x6" acrylic and enamel on canvas. (so named because i painted it on a tuesday when i was feeling a little icky on the inside over someone who shouldn't matter but somehow still does. i experimented with a new texture building medium and it really worked, adding a lot of depth to the paint, making it easy to mold and texturize the way i wanted it. this is also primarily acrylic a bit of a departure from my working style of the last year or so as i've been favoring a lot more enamels, primarily for their gloss and heavy body. i used a spray glaze to get the gloss on this and only a minimal amount of enamel-just the yellow in fact. i'd like to work on some bigger pieces with the same texture builder and maybe incorporate it with some of the other texture materials i like to see what kind of combinations i can come up with)
i will have work on display at the loop lounge this friday night. the loop is located in passaic park, nj. message me for more info or directions.
