80 TO 85 MY FIRST FIVE YEARS AS AN ARTIST

The paintings on this page were painted from November, 2011 through July, 2016.

 

PORTRAITS

THE KISS SERIES

My daughter Louise took a picture of my daughter Margot and her new born son Harold. I did not start my art journey till some 30 years after the picture was taken. When I had sufficient skills I painted the picture over and over again in different mediums and using a different approach for  each medium — a sort of artistic variation on a theme.

“BLUE” ART

An 85 year old great-grandmother painting sensual art? Why not! To me the only obscenity is violence and that I will not paint.

EDUCATIONAL ART

ALLEGORIC ART

ALLEGORIC ART tells a story. The following Allegoric paintings are in classic style.

ABSTRACT ART

Even my abstract art is allegoric. For example, the abstract of Good Morning is a demonstration of the concept of abstraction. Click on the painting for the full story.

REPRESENTATIONAL ART

The images of REPRESENTATIONAL ART are identifiable although not in a realistic sense. In most cases the picture is intended to evoke an emotion rather than tell a story.

PUZZLE

This picture of my grandson Frankie having fun on a carousel was one of the first paintings I did in class at the Boca Raton Museum School of Art. I was so pleased to have it chosen to be displayed as part of their annual juried show.

I revised The Carousel Ride on more than one occasion. There are at least 7 things I changed. Can you find them all?
