Pedestrians Two: Real and My Real

A photo I took on Market Street in Philadelphia, PA, in August, 2017. Notice that the lady is the same one as in a previous post.

Now here she is in my painted version. A bit of an appearance change. Can a person do this kind of magic just walking down the street? No, but I can, with my paintbrush and acrylic paints. And India ink. And NeoColor I crayons. On an 8″ x 8″ wood board.

Handwritten Postcards

You have seen some artist trading cards I made that incorporated my new handwriting.

And you’ve seen some postcards.

I f you wonder what I am talking about regarding “new handwriting”, look here.

Anyway, here are some more postcards. I painted the background in acrylics and then I wrote on them. The handwriting is not meant to mean anything – it’s just collections of words and phrases I heard as I watched TV.

On the Table

Flowers in a bowl. I made a background. Set it aside. Stamped on the red/scrapings. Thought it looked like flowers in a bowl. Dropped on some red paint and scrawled spirals into it. Now…I have a tiny painting of flowers in a bowl. What do you know?

A cosmic circle trying to escape.

An image that, if it were a horse, would be called piebald.

We wrap up the visit with these two artworks.

Now, let’s all get back on the bus and go home. I hope you enjoyed the trip to the Tiny Art Gallery.

Tiny Art Gallery – August Field Trip: Three

Strong bold scrapes across the image. Was the artist in a harsh mood that day? Or was it just the pleasure of making the decisive strokes that spurred these efforts? You decide.
