Profiles V


These last two posts have been a turn for me for something a little lighter. I like the change of colors and hope I can make a series that will keep its continuity. Newsprint, copper leaf, acrylic and oil on stretched canvas. 16X24

Mary,

This is wonderful. I love the shapes. I could sit and look at this for a long time.

Thank you Robin, your comments are important to me.

I am in AWE.... absolutely stunning work.

Cynthia said...

This is beautiful...I had to click on the larger image, and my first impression is that it looks like an aerial view. Maybe that's from my years worked as a flight attendant...I was always mesmerized by the view from above. Almost like the landscape is so perfect from above!

Mary said...

Thank you Jessica and Cynthia. Actually Cyntia it did start as a landscape but I turned it and saw other things so I decided to work towards shapes.

Billie Crain said...

Mary, to my eye this is the most sensual painting you've done! i can see the back of a dancing woman w/her arms raised high, her skirt swirling around her. excellent!

Mary said...

Billie, thank you and for the observation because that was what was intended. With these last two I have turned them around until I see something but both have started as landscapes.

Thank you beader, Jeanette and Elis for your comments. I've been working on another one but like it always happens with art, this one is taking longer and Profiles V just sort of happened.

Absolutely fabulous Mary! I am totally envious!! What a great talent you have.

Mary said...

Thank you Philip, for you kind words.

This is beautiful, Mary! I love the warmth and the undulating forms.

Cynthia, it's interesting that in your many travels the aerial view of the landscape didn't become commonplace. It's always held a fascination for me as well.
