What I’ve been working on

I’m back working with transparent white again. Transparent white layering is something I never leave for long, and have worked with since around 2008.

It’s a vertical painting, but I think it is interesting horizontal as well—

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.

White Bones

I didn’t know my simple idea to layer lots of transparent white paint runs over this  30 x 30 inch canvas would take so long–and it’s only about fifty percent complete. Maybe not even that. But at this stage it has an interesting ease of appearance, as if I had just scribbled that white on very quickly with a few gestures instead of building up the white over time. Daily, and for weeks now, I have poured 3-4 runs of transparent white paint, allowing each to dry before pouring the next. (I also have a 48 x 48 inch canvas ready to try this on, that will have a much darker underpainting).

I’m Trying Art Licensing

I am signing an art licensing contract with a company that will produce small, medium and large format reproductions of 3 of my paintings as home decor for buyers who cannot normally afford large artwork, creating options for them to buy my art at very affordable price ($35-$50 per small-scale print; $100-$150 per medium; $190 – $220 per large-scale reproduction). The contract pays a percentage (royalties) on each sale. Here is one of 3 they selected:

Resistance

Resistance, artist: Marie Kazalia, email the artist: mariekazzaz@embarqmail.com

The title, Resistance, refers to the painting techniques used–which are the Process Painting techniques of layers, stain and poured paint. The silver acrylic paint layer (over yellow and texture on canvas) acts as a resist to the watery splashed on dark paint stain, so that it does not soak into the canvas as in traditional Stain Painting.  The stain layer of watery paint bleeds out to break from the confines of the hardedge forms based on military camouflage patterns. The artist mixes much of her own paint using painting mediums and dry pigments. In this case, the artist mixed silver aluminum powder into an artist grade acrylic medium as the pigment binder, to create the silver paint used in this painting.
