Go, Figures

Go, Figures

 

Go, Figures started life as a regular modeling session but in acrylics, not the usual way to go.  It evolved into this.  The background is inspired by František Kupka’s Mme Kupka (1910). He was a Czech artist and she his wife. I saw the painting at the Nieu Gallery in NYC, at a special exhibit that included some of Klimt’s famous paintings.

Two Brown Bass Fiddles at the Palau

Two Brown Bass Fiddles at the Palau

This started life as a drawing at Palau de la Musica.  I enlarged the original, a tiny 2 x 4″ and put it on the canvas board, then painted in with acrylics.  See also Two Fiddles at the Palau, a version of this based on the very same drawing.

Self Portrait of My Own Self With Shaved Head, A3, 29.7 x 42 cm 16.5 x 11.5″

I shaved my head because I had so little hair left anyway.  It was nonetheless a shock to see myself in the mirror, looking so unlike me.  No one else seems to think so.
