Metaing

Familiar repeating loops link us to our inner workings—the spiral of our DNA—and out ward in sound waves and in ancient repeating pattern and antique decoration given a contemporary spin in spots or dots on the surface and layered and muted under translucent acrylic and Flashe fine art paints in this painting on Coventry Rag fine art paper.

The title Metaing refers to my flat painted interpretation of the definition of the word Meta—pertaining to or noting an abstract, high-level analysis or commentary, especially one to consciously reference its own type.

An Artsia Success

by Marie Kazalia

It was wonderful to receive an email from Artsia owner Colin Mansell, saying–

“I’ve got some great news – we have just sold 2 of your paintings:

X-ray

Repressed memory wallpaper

He provided the buyer’s address in Europe, and included the amount the buyer paid for shipping.

Colin also wrote–“This is one of the first international sales on the site… and I really want to figure out the best way to handle this as a process moving forwards. …  I would love to know your recommendations from the artists perspective!”

6 New –Mixed Media Paintings on Paper

Here are images of 6 paintings that I recently completed –all mixed media on Lennox fine art paper 22 x 30 inches. The mixed media includes ink, charcoal, pencil, Flashe, synthetic polymer and pigment, and (in some cases)oil paint.

Since I do have a lot of visual ideas all the time, and stacks of thumbnail sketches of my ideas I’ve drawn on paper, I have plenty I’d like to paint to 22 x 30 inches or larger.  I’ve also been using a sketchbook app in my iPad and have created 500 iPad color sketches since I first got the app in April. So I’m making approximately 50 color idea sketches per week in my iPad.  My ideas are piling up!

Here are 6 that I recently painted –all mixed media on Lennox fine art paper 22 x 30 inches. The mixed media includes ink, charcoal, pencil, Flashe, synthetic polymer and pigment, and oil paint.

Talking in Circles, a series within a series

For many months now, I’ve been working with circles, orbs, dots, spots, painting and developing each paintings as I worked. The paintings that I’m posting here are all from a series within a series I’ve titled Talking in Circles. This sub-series is designated as different due to the fact that I developed these painting ideas in my iPad before paintings them on paper. I just bought my iPad the last day of February, so I’ve had it just over two months. I discovered an iPad app called Sketchbook Pro 6 that is easy to use. I also customized my iPad with a skin from Decal Girls printed with one of my paintings, and I used one of my iPad sketches for wallpaper on my iPad–so it really feels like it is my sketchbook. The advantage of using my iPad as a sketchbook is that the entire color palette is in the Sketchbook app–no need to carry markers, pens, or pencils. Using the Sketchbook app in my iPad to try various color combinations, layering and patterning saves a lot of time developing an idea, because it is fast and easy to create it in the Sketchbook app, make a working copy and continue working on the idea. I then used my iPad sketches to and work from as I painted the paintings in this series on Lennox fine art paper using Flashe and some acrylic fine art paints.
