Last november Salon des arts exhibition was a great success. Of course I was delighted to find buyers for my art (I can tell I felt up the clouds for a while…), but I was also a great opportunity to meet so many people that show interest in my art, and obviously in my two favourite below.
I realize now that I was expecting this to figure out next step.
What’s next ?
So now I know, I want to go MUCH BIGGER, to move free on a surface to express myself without feeling limited by borders. This means a bigger space but I have to deal with what I have, which is not so bad actually. So first step was to paint white an old furniture to make some space on my table. And I am waiting for two big canvas I ordered for a trial.
In the meantime, I worked on a little pink relaxing series of which one came through and the others finished in cut small pieces.
Disponible à la vente sur Art majeur, les petits formats sont en vitrine à la boutique La Rêverie d’Oyonnax.
Now back to my orange/blue favourite palette, I made one set based on mixing coulours and introduced new boards on other set with pure saturated colours.
This summer inspiration came from the bright light all around. Even though it’s been quite windy and cold around here the need for light is alsways there. It was also time to go bigger so new works in progress include some 40×40 panels and more. the smaller ones went quicker and ended with two soft little canvas that need just one more varnish layer.
First went really fast and received several layers of glaze, I like those bright white spots. On second I pushed the darks and they both work well together.
In my attempt to scale up I also made some experiments with bold beginings on large sheets of paper. It was great fun to go through painting exercizes. with 3 or 5 minutes time limit.
Latest went further exploring the brightness of orange, and the learning of temperation with neutral greys.
Light series is still in progress… keep in touch !
