Painting Onion on Newspaper
14x22" | $400

No, this one isn't a postcard-size painting, but I wanted to post it today: the day after the painting it depicts was posted.

This was an interesting painting, both in the process as well as in the finished piece. It started with a photograph of my working surface - newspaper, onion, and the painting. I wasn't sure I was going to paint the scene when I first took the photo, but after spotting a canvas with the right dimensions, I thought I'd try it out . . . see what happens. A few hours later, I found myself still working on the piece - adding details and correcting annoyances. At the very end, I added the paint brush to firmly establish the painting of the onion as a flat, two-dimensional thing.

I'm not sure what it is, but something within me gets excited about this painting. Something makes me turn my head every so often to see the image again, to study its detail, to understand it somehow. It could be the autobiographical nature of the piece, revealing something from my life. It could be the narrative aspect, telling the tale of a work in progress. This was one of those paintings where the Creative Flow took over, leaving an interesting painting in its wake. In any case, I plan to paint more of these in the future.

This was painted from a reference photo I took while at the art market in Madisonville. A lone sailboat on the banks of the Tchefuncte River (yeah, I had to look up how to spell it).

 

December's Painting-a-Day

Posted on by Wess Foreman

For the month of December, I'll be posting a new postcard-size painting every weekday. Yes, I've got a few already finished ahead of time (it would be difficult for me to find the time and motivation everyday during the Holidays). So, stay tuned and contact me if you would like to purchase any of these. (It starts tomorrow)

A cute photo taken by my wife at a "Dream Day Foundation" event is what prompted this painting. One perfect, simple scene.

Yesterday was President's Day in the United States, and although I admittedly don't go all out for this national holiday [what does one do on President's Day, anyway?], I had the slightly-belated thought of painting something patriotic. So, here you go, a day late, the little flag-pin that lives in my sock drawer and usually only comes out for certain holidays [the ones that should probably be celebrated more often]. Happy President's Day!

The reference photo I used came from The Library of Congress's Flickr page [see previous post about that, where I used this very reference photo, in fact]. As you can see, I had more fun with "faux text" in this one. Anyway, this one came out pretty well, if I do say so myself.

This one is dedicated to Tammy, my wife, who always reminds me when Valentines Day is on its way and whose jewelry I sequestered to compose this red and pink painting. Thanks, Dear.

Oh, this painting is for sale, by the way [I figure, it's not a Federal Holiday, so commerce continues].
