BACK TO WORK!


It seems like life gets in the way of making art sometimes.  I finally have a finished painting under my belt for the first time in awhile.   I covered over an old painting that reminded me of a Picasso style, so I was inspired to collage down some images of a number of Picasso paintings I had in my files.  There was a rather large image where the face is now and one of the eyes was exactly between the two on this face.  Even Picasso didn't put a third eye in.  The face became more opaque as I endeavored to cover it over.  I do like combining painting and drawing/mark making in a painting.  I think I want to do a few more in this style.  Now to find a title.  I am considering: "Night At the Museum" and "Channeling Picasso".  If you would like to weigh in with an opinion or an idea for a title, I would love to hear from you!

I will be jurying the International Society of Acrylic Painters annual show to be exhibited in Paso Robles, Ca. this year.  I am also going to be giving a workshop in Paso Robles from July 27th to July 31st which coincides with the opening of the show.  There is only space for 12 participants in the workshop, so if you are interested, contact Sasha Irving at:

Mysteries at the Museum indeed! That sure does look like Ben Stiller. It is a fabulous piece, Myrna!!

Hi Myrna,

Titles are tricky! I like your idea of "Night At the Museum". I kept trying to play with the word idea of meeting Picasso but couldn't come up with anything that had rhythm. I do think its a fascinating painting/collage!


Congrats on being selected to serve as Juror; very cool!
