Art – It’s not just on canvas!

I’m finally gearing up for some arts and crafts shows, the first in over a year, and I have lots of new items that I will be selling. Among them are these beautiful, hand painted coaster sets.

Let me tell you a little about them.

The pink/peach set was about 4 weeks in the making, with a lot of that drying time between coats and edging. Speaking of edging, this set is outlined in raised gold and the set is covered with resin and has a cork bottom. There are four coasters in this set.

Pink, peach and rose coasters. Set of four.

The lilac/blue set also took about four weeks to complete, only this set is outlined in raised silver metal. It too is covered in resin. Both this and the above set began life as 4×4 while tiles. There are four coasters in this set.

Purple, rose and lilac coasters.

The green set is glass with glass footings. It too was hand painted with small dots around the edges. This was painted on the bottom and was cured over two months, so you never have to worry about a glass scratching it. There are two in this set.

A new painting to ring in 2021!

“Continuum”, three, 8×10, acrylic on linen canvas. (Approximately 10×26 when hung}

Continuing in the tradition of Jackson Pollack comes, “Continuum”, a tryptic consisting of three, 8×10 acrylics on canvas. These are designed to be placed side by side with minimal space between each. Once hung, it would measure about 10×26-perfect for that hard to fit space! Go ahead. Buy it….your wall is crying for it.

“Red and Black on Linen”

“Red and Black on Linen”, 16×20 Acrylic on linen canvas.

I am inspired by other artists. I created “Carefree in Givenchy” which was inspired by Monet after a visit to the French Countryside. “Poppies, Poppies Everywhere” came about after a visit to Arles and St. Remy, France where Van Gogh spend a lot of time. “Red and Black on Linen” came about after looking at paintings by Jackson Pollack.

Many critics pooh pooh his work, saying that he simply threw paint on a canvas. Those who know better understand that it takes a certain amount of talent to get the finished project to mean something.

Having said that, I decided to give it a try. First, it’s not as easy as it looks. Pollack used linen canvases to do many of his paintings and I did the same. Linen canvas is very unforgiving. It requires prior planning because wherever the paint lands, it oozes into the canvas, not a lot, but enough to make a difference.

I thoroughly enjoyed painting this and I hope you enjoy it as well. Thank you, Jackson Pollack, for the inspiration!
