Tiled" Emilie Floege" Inspired by Gustav Klimt's work. My version was created on a 24x30x1.5 framed gallery wrapped canvas. As with all my work I first draw the image, circles, etc. I then add color, outline and then finish it with a special art sealant. It can take anywhere from several weeks to months to finish a detailed piece such as this one so I usually have a few on the go. I love combining the metallic colors with the blues and reds. Facial features, and hands are out of my comfort zone but I do love a good challenge and love the growth. I am working on a series of Gustav's woman, I hope you enjoy them!
This is one of my newest paintings titled "Peacock Blue". Working on tall canvas' is one of my favorite things to create with. The size of the canvas measures 18x36x1.5 inches on framed gallery wrapped canvas with the sides painted black. As with each painting, I first hand draw everything. Then comes the color and the outlining. It is a long process lasting anywhere to a couple of week to months. The secret to the stained glass look is what I prime my canvas' with, it really makes those colors pop! I paint my sides black to finish the piece but I love the way the black "leaks" or drifts around the canvas from the outlining on the front, it has a really nice flow to it. The colors are rich and deep on this piece and it has a dramatic feel to it. I love it and hope you will too!
What do you do when wonderful new collector buys 107 pieces of your art?.. Why you make more art!! This new painting titled " Autumn Tapestry" was created on a 16x20x1.5 inch framed gallery wrapped canvas using acrylic colors. Summer is my favorite season but when it comes to color Autumn is number one. Enjoy the season before winter arrives with this delightful piece.
This painting is titled "Roof top View". Inspired by a visit at my son's home in the city, where he lives in a high rise facing the river, a lovely place to visit. As I looked out from his balcony I thought how many people lived in so many buildings scattered across the horizon each living their lives, and with that I created this piece on a 24x30x1.5 framed gallery wrapped painting. I started out with the sky and followed with the building and trees. The cats were the final touch. I was quite pleased with the results, a little different then what I usually do but I thought why not.
