Black and White

29 Faces Day 24

“Cash”

Here’s the thing. I rarely paint real people, especially the celebrity type.  The main reason being, they have to actually resemble the well known individual you are painting. Of course, that is SO much easier said than done, but don’t get me wrong. I do like a good challenge, and so today in the spirit of 29faces, I offer my attempt at Johnny Cash…

 

 

 

29 Faces Day 22

“Fine Tuned”

Tada! This is the painting that had me out of the loop for a couple of days. I am always happy when an idea comes to life. I love the process. First the spark. Mapping it out in my head. Perhaps a quick sketch on paper to set the dimensions of the main elements. Finally to paint, layer after layer, until it starts coming to life. Adding, editing, frustration, aha moments, knowing when to say when. The process is my joy. The finished painting is a bonus…

 

 

29 Faces Day 20

Pomodori

Italian for tomatoes, “Pomodori” is not only my 20th face, but also my entry in this month’s Nibblefest Art Contest on eBay. The theme for February is ‘Black and White’. This Acrylic Painting was done with just three colors, Titanium White, Mars Black, and for the tomatoes, Permanent Red. It is the ACEO (Art Card Editions and Originals) standard size of 2.5″x3.5″!

FYI, search NFAC on eBay to see all the Nibblefest Art and Auctions starting at just $0.99!
