Happy 13th Birthday to our Kameryn Nevae. We love you so much. Where’d the time go? You’re growing up so fast. Such a big heart and a strong spirit. And man, do you have a sense of humor. You’ve been making us laugh since you could speak.
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.
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.
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
Laying down some large scale geometric on this 48x36. Just the start. #geometricart #lineart #illustration #koi #art #artgallery #interiordesign #drawings #mixedmedia #painting #modernart
My collectors who commissioned the large ballerina paintings commissioned two 48x30 cherry Blossom panels for their beautiful home.
Textured blooms and branches
I did an alcohol pour for the background then contrasted where needed
I'm doing two cherry Blossom panels for one of my collectors. They're the owners of both the ballerinas
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.
Large 48x36 textured Gold Nebula work in progress
My baby girl is loving my drop cloth
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.
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
Thought I was done. Nope. I'm done now40x36 commissioned #cherryblossom . Edges continue with the vines
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
And these are my old yucky floors. My husband installed new ones. Now the kitchen is next.
Starting a new 48x36 blending portrait art, geometrics, and splatter
Varnishing finished commissioned piece
Flesh tinted glaze and ice blue tinted glaze. Small addition...HUGE impact!
Need to add in more spidered branches
2nd day in working on two Cherry blossom pieces . Adding in more blooms on top, plus adding in glaze tinted color contrasts to tree and blooms, will add in more spider branches and buds. #workinprogress #painting #cherryblossom #modernart #asianart #interiordesign #art
Finished this Fire Wire right before my solo last week. It's for sale. If you want prints I can do them of the individual koi fish too.
I'm producing limited art priuts. I will have a gallery up soon for prints available. Until then, feel free to browse my gallery and contact me about getting a reproduction of a certain piece.
Minus my surfboards which I'll bring that night. MArch 3rd Expo Arts Center, Atlantic Blvd Long Beach 5pm. Prints will available for purchase. Cash/credit cards. Also I take orders for larger prints, and canvas prints
Ill update again in a few days
Finished 48x48. Heavy textured blooms, created with pallet knives and fondant tool. Come out about half inch. might not be fully dry for Tuesday's hanging but if someone is interestedI'll just need to varnish it after it comes down after #firstfridayslb #gallery #geisha #cherryblossom #modernart #interiordesign #longbeach #painting #asianart #kelliethomaswalker
