Untitled : and that’s the title!!!

I felt uncomfortable of having that Flower in the Dark(See previous post) on the top of my journal page.
(But still I would love to hear your comments about it ;-) )

So I wanted to post this. One of my favorites and I’m so passionate about it. Painted many months ago. I left it untitled. Can you feel it?

As I told you in my previous post, I am supposed to work, and I will be away for two days. Will catch you after that.

Flower in the dark

Another painting from Flower Series. This one is more abstract, mystic and dark. It has extremely thick layers of paint on it, which made it rather heavy :-D . Though this is NOT one of my favorites, I’m going to share it with you.

I won’t be around LJ next two days. I have to prepare for a seminar that I am supposed to be attending next weekend and there’s a cricket match that I badly want to go and watch :-) Be good and I’ll see you in two days.

Digitalized and iconized!!!

I get really fascinated by the accidental yet extremely creative things happen when I rework my paintings in digital medium. Sometimes I paint halfway and then start reworking it with Corel Photo Paint (Yes, I don’t use Photoshop that much). Then I stumble upon some magical effects, fall in love with the new version. Then this new digital work becomes a sketch for a new painting. Sometimes I do my sketches with Photo Paint in the first place and then get on with my “real” palette. Here are some of my digitalized work. They are mere sketches but I really love those effects. Both belong to a series of paintings called split screen. Some completed work from that series are available on my website.

And the digital version of the second drawing is now being used as a userpic by lisalemonjello (with my permission of course) with whom I signed a milion dollar contract to grant the rights to use it as an icon. And wow, it looks so beautiful as an icon too. Ok I understand, you had enough of my boasting, so I better shut up.

Bed

I managed to photograph some of my old paintings and upload them to my website. This is one of my favorites: Bed, Acrylic on wood panel. I wanted to do a series of this kind but couldn’t do it that time. But now, I think I’m in the mood to do it. We’ll see….

And I’m using this wonderful publishing client semagic to post this entry. It’s really cool :-)

Flower and the moon

This one belongs to a series of paintings that I call Flower series.
I’m feeling nostalgic about these paintings since I’m not doing this series anymore; I’m currently doing some landscapes with a more “realistic” touch. But I feel like going back to this set and rework a bit.

Will post my recent landscapes when I manage to get hold of my photographer. It is bit annoying when you have to depend on someone else to take photos of your work. Any recommendations for a good digital camera for this trype of work? I’m looking for one, then I’ll do it myself.
