If successful, the minimal paintings appear simple, but they are not easy. One brush stroke out of place, can ruin it. Dee Adams is a master at this style of painting, and she is very influential in my work.
It is the latter of the two styles that I find more aesthetically pleasing when it comes to decorating my apartment. Dear readers, I humbly offer my work from this weekend.
Untitled, 18" x 24", acrylic on canvas. This is the first time I have done a painting a second time. See first attempt at these shapes here.
"Slug", 18" x 24", acrylic on canvas. I am, surprisingly, happy with this painting. I like the organic feel juxtaposed with the more graphic elements. It's rare for me to do two works I am happy with. Usually, I only like maybe three out of ten of my paintings. And this weekend I did two I am pleased with! What a lucky day! I've been working hard to master rain, and this is one of the times I got close. If you'd like to see another of my paintings where I am pleased with rainy effect, please click here.
These paintings are lovingly dedicated to Erykah Badu (see below), whose soulfull sounds felt like God speaking to me, and made it possible for these works. Love you, Erykah. You go girl!
