Friday September 9, 2011 Still Life Revisited

I am reposting the first still life image. When I originally drew the image I had planned to paint it without the smaller interior shapes. I wanted only flat shapes in flat colors. But as often happens, I got intrigued with the shapes within the shapes, and just couldn't let them go. But I followed my original idea and painted the composition again. You will notice I am not putting objects on the woven blankets as before, but instead, used the woven Mexican blanket as a source for a painting. The two pieces could be hung together? These works are 11"x11" and are gouache on paper. (I do not know why the striped painting appears smaller? But they are all the same.)

Beautiful paintings, all. I am glad you got intrigued with the shapes within. It is that way with painting, sometimes the pictures want to paint themselves.

The shapes within shapes have me intrigued, too. This is amazing.
