Red Night: Painting #48

Artists for A Pristine PlanetRed Night: Painting #48.

What happens when you hate what you painted and start to paint over it? Sometimes it gets better than it was in the first place.

That’s what happened today. I felt like a mush head all day – by Friday, if I’ve been going over my limit of an hour or an hour and a half for a painting – like I have this week! – I end up exhausted.

I started to paint a rag-tag combo of Rousseau-like elements, and got about half done and hated it.

Artists for A Pristine PlanetSo I painted it yellow, and then a coat of magenta…and all of a sudden, the mood shifted…it was sweet…and I liked it!

So I added a few more elements and presto, it was done! I like it much better than the painting I had planned, too!

Here’s what the pillow looks like, and the painting is shown here in a frame for illustration purposes only – frame NOT included.

This one was painted in acrylics on heavy watercolor paper mounted on a 12″ x 9″ canvas.

The Village and the Sea – A New Agreement? Painting #47

Artists for A Pristine PlanetThe Village and the Sea – A New Agreement? Painting #47.

Chagall was an amazing painter. I always liked his stained-glass-like colors, but until I tried actually painting like him, I never realized how masterful he was.

In his original painting (posted below), called “the Village and I”, he uses various devices to pull you in and literally guide your eye as he wants you to see the story.

My guiding lines are more blatant than his, but that’s OK. It still works. You can see the sacred spiral that starts at the top right with the village.

Under that, you’ll see what looks like the grim reaper and a women holding something.

I never saw it before, but she’s holding a line like a string that goes from the fish’s eye to the human’s and then to herself.

In Chagall’s version, the string is attached to a cow, perhaps signifying the village’s interdependence with the animals and other critters the village ate and produced, and the animals who depended on the humans to keep safe from wild animals and weather.

Artists for A Pristine PlanetHe has a farmer stepping over that line, going out to the fields to reap the harvest. In my version, I wanted it to look like the Reaper will cut that connecting line if we don’t make an agreement soon, and take action to keep the seas safe.

Now you follow that spiral line down to the fish – the Spokes-Fish for the seas? – with the red moon under it – bloody with the death of the ocean creatures? Red for rebirth? The red crescent moon for wild, powerful women who are taking action now more than ever to help the planet? Maybe all three….

Now you get to the human, whose mouth is within the inner circle with the fish’s – communication? Their eyes are certainly targeted on each other’s. Then the posey and the background red of life-beginnings, regeneration, life.

The human is green, which I don’t have to say much about, since green seems to be such a buzz-word now; and is offering a posey – hopefully a peace offering and sign of intention for husbandry. It’s within a special triangular shape, perhaps a wedge opening a new space for future possibilities with the inner circle.

I really liked it that Chagall added such whimsical touches as the necklaces and the rick-rack design on the hat, as well as the odd configuration of the human’s eyeball – almost looks like an old rotary phone. Hard to believe that his painting was done almost exactly 100 years ago!

Ever been out on one of those full-moon nights where everything just kind of glowed?

In Hawaii, we have lots of nights like that. And I just happen to have a garden where I can go sit and enjoy those nights – lucky me! Here – I’ll share it with you!

I hope you have taken the plastic bull by the horn and stopped buying bottled drinking water by now. And I hope you’re starting to use cloth carry bags for groceries! Thanks – you are really helping when you just do those 2 things.

Sometimes I Just Like to Do YOU! – Painting #45

SOLD. Sometimes I Just Like to Do YOU!, Painting #45. O Bad Me!

What happens when a friend comes over and suggests a naughty painting?

You do it, of course!

Only it isn’t half as naughty as it could be, and is actually more fun than anything really nasty-naughty….It made us laugh a lot, anyway –

This, in case you hadn’t guessed, is the counter-part to Sometimes I Just Like to Do Nothing!

So can you figure out who said what first? Is she answering him? Or is he responding to what she said? Hih hih hih….(You’ll notice neither of them have plastic water bottles with them – there are secret springs under the palm trees….)

Painting #24: Body Surfing with My Buddies

Painting #24: TITLE: Body Surfing with My Buddies.

Last night a friend and I sat in his studio looking at hundreds of paintings, fantastic sci-fi computer art and highly stylized cartoons by other artists.

OK then – here we go – and remember to look down to see who you’re surfing with!

Painting #23: Outrigger

Artists for A Pristine Planet

Painting #23: TITLE: Outrigger.

This is a take-off from an old Hawaiian poster I’ve had for years.

Back in the days before lead was banned from paint, they had this great color called Hookers Green. You can’t get it anymore, and it’s a crying shame.

I wanted to see if I could do a piece almost entirely in greens, and if I could get the feel that the older paintings had. I rather like it.

Because this image reminds me of a little tiny town called Ka’a’awa here on the Hawaiian Island of Oahu. The way you say it goes like this: KAH ah AH vah, with distinct breaks between the segments.
