"Red Hair"

"Self Portrait "

20x 15, acrylics, on Illustration board

 I am taking E course, "Draw and paint what you Love - Spring 2014".
 Last week was Week 1: Mark Making. I did my self portrait for the Mark-making practice. I found it lot easier to approach the painting by thinking "I am JUST making various marks". It frees me and more fun.

"The drawing of myself"  
I did this drawing from the memory.
 I still have vivid memory of myself from the last few self portraits I did at the beginning of this year.

"Winged Man"

I always love figurative work......
All of my New Direction paintings are Figurative Abstract.

I am enjoying the spontaneous, carefree process of painting.
This painting is done Dec 2013, right before Xmas.
I feel I came long way since last summer.
I gave "The Winged Man" as a title to this painting.

Searching for the Direction-week 20

"Moonstruck I"

I am quite happy with progress I am making. Enjoying the experimental approach with the use of color and texture. There are endless possibilities as long as I am on my journey of the searching

                                                            24x24x1.5 in.     acrylic, mixed media on canvas


This painting has thick and rough texture. Hard to deal with.
Has so many layers attempt made. Finally I am quite happy with this painting.
I have to give a title fit well  to. Maybe, "Journey Man", I like it!

Searching for the Direction-week 5

5 weeks passed by. Finally I have  two paintings which I could call it as finished. I am very happy I got to this point rather quicker than I expected.
My mission from now is to continue producing paintings with same integrity as these.
Seems much harder than the exploring stage.


" Can't Stay Still"

Searching for the Direction-week 1

Starting last week,  I am trying to do larger paintings, with different approach.
By using acrylics, creating  the interesting surface. I am curious how this process will be developed.

Monotype with my drawings

These are monotypes cooperated with my figuire drawings. All of these are work-in-progress. I love this process. It offers the endless possibilities in art-making.

some drawings..

I found a figuire drawing group in Santa Fe, not far from me.
These are first drawings  in this year.   I felt  so familiar being with other artists and  a model,

like coming back  home.
This model was so lean and long, from yoga and Qigong practice..
Reminds  of  Images of Egon Schelle

"Daisies II"

 "Daisies II"
4"x4", oil on gessobord

This painting took little longer. Because there was a little commotion between the yellow daisy and the white flower in front.
    I had to calm them down by acknowledging both are queens.
    One is a queen of England, the other, queen of Scotland.

It is season for the roses.

They love long and hot sun light in the summer.

"Head Study 10"

6"x6", oil on gessobord

For this portrait, more time and effort went into the background design and the composition. 
I like to show the character of the person through the whole painting with composition, design 
not only with the head.

"Jennifer_ Head Study 9"

I am happy that this painting is done spontaneously. No over working. This is from the Mugshots. She looks young and innocent. I like to paint beautiful girls. Next time I will choose a psychedelic looking guy.

  6"x6", oil on gessobord

                                                    (Ref Mugshot for this painting)
