This is the result of the 24” x 30” blank canvas from the earlier post, neon squares painted with acrylics and slightly sanded over. This will go in my “creativity area” according to feng shui. I don’t know if I’m done with the painting but I’m done for today.
I recently completed a painting for a friend in which I painted over my old artwork from the 90s. No worries it was crappy artwork anyway – I was trying to emulate the style from Juxtapoz Magazine. It really just looks like a crazy stream of consciousness painting. It was also done in chalk pastels and colored pencils so it was badly faded, I needed to paint over it. This new painting had to be fresh, bright, and lively – so I decided to try rosemaling, which is harder than it looks and I ended up freestyle painting the roses. My friend agreed with painting over the old artwork but with one exception – that I keep the little green Martians that you see on the lower right corner of the final piece…. and keep the girl that’s painted on the other side of the board which was my attempt at Litchenstein and manga.
I need an uplifting happy piece for my “creativity area” – something with bright and cool colors. I definitely want some bling because there’s not a lot of light in this area.
