Starting Geometrics on 3rd

Background is done, now starting geometrics on 3rd in my New series.  It takes a long time, there will be so much more detail and then at the end I'll implement in some physics. On a side note, my oldest daughter has been completing her college applications. She wants to major in research chemistry. Applying to UCI, UCLA, Cal Poly SLO, CSULB, Azusa Pacific.  The process is daunting. But I'm a pretty proud mom. She's worked so hard for so long. Good luck Tara.

Geometrics, Linear Art, physics

I have been consumed with my new idea for my geometric series. To add in hints of physics to tell a story. Math and science is everywhere. I'm not talking about tedious 7th grade math, my thoughts are focused on looking at space, time, nature, life and death. Seeing the connections. The Golden Ratio can be found all through nature. And time is ever present. We can all feel it. Sometimes it is almost tangible.  This series is going to take me a long time, but I am led to do it. I haven't added on any equations yet.

Geometrics add in

Since my obsession with geometric linear art is overtaking me, I pulled one of my Geishas down to add in linear accents. Just started, more definition to come #geometric #lineart #geisha #modernart #interiordesign #asianart #painting #art #gallery

Busy summer

I've severely neglected posts on my blog.  My girls we're home and we have a new Airdale Terrier puppy named Boe keeping us busy.  My nephew and his beautiful bride were married. We flew our daughters to Seattle for my birthday, then drove down to Eugene, Oregon for th wedding. The blue painting below is their wedding present from us.

Finished 48x24 commissioned whale painting

FullSizeRender.jpg

A client wanted a pair of humpback whales with a sense of urgency. Depicting the fight for survival against whale hunting.  I've never painted whales before, so I dove into studying them. Studying water and light rays.  I'm happy with it. The owner is extremely pleased.

Commissioned whale painting

My return client asked me to pain a 4x2 ft piece with two humpback whales.  He has a great admiration for the Sea Shepherds organization and their fight against the horrific hunting of the gentle giants. So this piece he wanted to depict a story of their fight for survival. It's still a few weeks to completion but here's my progress pics

Said goodbye to two of my paintings this past weekend.  I love these pieces so it's was extremely hard.

Commission 36x36. Based on my 48x48.  The collector loved the larger one but didn't have the space. Thick textures on the blooms
