Mario Rotta15,308This is a circle in which I included a lot of excellent photographers: but most of them start from pictures to create visual design effects. So, this circle may represent a list of people working on the edge between photography and art. I like that experimental edge :-)2014-05-22 06:00:41400016CC G+
Tessa Schlesinger20,569This is the circle of people I follow. I am not in it (so I'm not promoting myself). I follow them because they are interesting, sincere, have good stuff. Some of them have been here with me from day one.  They don't always interact every day, but I think it really depends on what you're looking for on G+. If you want people to interact with you, well, nobody can interact with everybody who adds them. There just isn't enough time to do that. On the other hand, if you'd like to read someone because they present informative, interesting, entertaining stuff, then this circle is interesting. I think it would appeal to atheists, agnostics, people who love beauty, travel, occasional humor, who are visual, intellectual, thinkers, humanist, and/or liberal. :)2014-05-08 15:31:52186503CC G+

Tessa Schlesinger12,664These are the people I follow. If you would like to follow these people, feel free. There is no guarantee that they will add you if you do. You will be following them because you would like to hear what they have to say. There is no need to plus it, add a comment, and then share it in order for you to be added to some new circle which will be shared. This is the way we shared circles for the first two years. So feel free to add, or not. And I'm not in it so it isn't promoting myself. It's a gift to you, if you would like it. And, I suppose it's a gift to those who are in the circle that I freely give with no expectation of return.2013-11-03 12:52:17133335CC G+

Ardith Goodwin39,738New to Google+ Starter Circle for Art PeepsTo all of you who are in our community but are new to Google+ I wanted to share a 'small' circle of folks you can follow that tend to have a love of arts, share art related content, and welcome new followers/conversations within their streams. This group is to help you get your stream active, explore what it means to follow 'strangers', and begin interacting with others, if you so choose, here on Google+. If you are brand new, let me caution you to not approach Google+ like FB because you will be confused and frustrated. I like to think of Google+ as a great blend of Twitter, Stumble Upon, Blogger, and Youtube. The nature of this network is that you follow people who post content that you are interested in reading. Just because you follow someone DOES NOT MEAN that they will follow you back and that is perfectly ok. And, just because you follow them it doesn't mean they will see what YOU post. They will only see what YOU post if they follow you back. I have included several folks from this community within this circle, as well as who is a Google community supervisor here, and a great gal! I encourage you to add more folks as you see them share and get to know them here. At any time, you can also remove someone from this circle or add to it, as you see fit. If you are lost or need some guidance for Google+, don't hesitate to ask for help, many of us LOVE to help newbies. 2013-01-04 01:43:0253724CC G+

Just got offered a custom URL for my G+ account, so I took 'em up on it.  I went with https://plus.google.com/+MarilynFennPainter/

Hope it doesn't ramify in any negative way.  Anyone know of the ups and downs?

This Color Mini painting is on its way to its new home in Wisconsin!  Woo-hoo!  :)

In the meantime, I'm rebuilding my shop site, which had a little meltdown the other day.  :(

Happy Valentine's Day!

Here's a painting I haven't shared with y'all yet that I finished just a week or so ago; seems appropriate for today somehow.

In between working on my series of color minis and larger works, I'm repainting some old failed works. This was one of my early experiments in acrylic, but is now more delightfully covered in oil paint; it has more or less the same color palette as the original, but the imagery is quite different! You can see the old intentionally scraped and gouged texture under the oils. Kind of fun, no?

Another mini-painting from last week.

This one could be called "The Non-Conformist," as I used just 3 hues of red + white to make this, but as you can see, a little blue snuck itself into one square.

Here are the 1st seven daily color-study paintings from this year, and 2 from 2013.    Number 4 (from left) will get repainted, and maybe the white ones, too.  These are all 6x6 inch paintings...more to come.

Number 7 in This Small Series

I do have an overall plan for this little body of work, but I never know really where each painting will go, once I get going. Which is, of course, part of the fun of the process. I do particularly like this one, even if it is a bit blocky. Thinking of the word "fresh" when choosing palette.

New Work -- Number 5 for 2014

I'm skipping #4 for now.  I couldn't decide whether each "daily" painting  should be considered done at the end of each painting day, or if they should continue to get re-worked until I feel I've resolved whatever compositional/color/paint application issues I may be having with them.  So, #4 is still in an undecided state, having worked on it for about 8 days in a  row (which seems a little excessive for a tiny canvas like these are).  I'll post after I decide it's done, OR when I decide I'm done with it, no matter what state it's in.

What about you other daily painters?  Do you call it done at the end of a day, or keep working on your daily paintings until they feel right?  Is it more about learning what you can learn in one day's work?  Are you stopping at the end of the day in order to get thecritic o... more »

Anyway, here's #5.  I stopped at the end of the day, after my (continuing) excruciating experience with #4.  ;)  This is painted on another old scraped and sanded canvas from last year.  I love working against that previous texture!

Third Small Painting of 2014

Working with the colors on my palette on an old scraped and sanded-down canvas.  I love having that texture from a previous painting.   A moth flew into this one just after I'd finished it, and left a bit of its wing at about 3 o'clock, 1/3 of the way in.  Sigh!

New Work, New Studio Practice, 2014

I started a new practice last week of mostly daily paintings.  These are small works in oil (so far--in oil) exploring color, color relationships, paint application, composition, the relationship of form and color, etc.  It's a great way to get back into the studio after last year's home improvement projects that so drastically affected my time and studio space, and therefore my ability to paint.  I'm also working on larger canvases, but those will take longer to be ready to post.

I'll be posting studio shots of these at first, until the paintings are dry enough and the weather is cooperative enough to take more professional photos outside, so forgive the shine on the paintings, and know that someday there will be better, more true-to-color shots of these.  Here's the first one.

Took a long break from G+ while we were ensconced in completing yet another home improvement project.  This time, we repaired my art storage room/workroom, which had been flooding.  It's awesome now!  Here's a few pics, from just after finishing painting to mostly moved back in (all that stuff was stuffed into my studio, preventing me from painting, and into the dining room and various other spaces around our little house!).  

Anyway, cheers!  It's great to be back.  Hope to catch up with everybody over the next few weeks.

East Austin Studio Tour

We visited a bunch of artists at a number of studios last weekend and yesterday at the 12th annual East Austin Studio Tour (EAST).  I blogged about the first studio we visited here: http://marilynfenn.com/continued/touring-the-east-austin-studio-tour-2014-the-art-post/  

Very soon I plan to blog about the rest of the artists and studios we went to.

I also added all the pics I've taken so far to a gallery on my blog, here: http://marilynfenn.com/continued/east-2013/

If you're in Austin, I recommend getting out to see some art.  It's not too late.  It continues today through 6pm.  Maps and info here: http://www.eastaustinstudiotour.com/

Means not much to me, except I'm glad to see a few artists whose work I love on the list.

2.  about 67% of artists believe it is possible for them to make a living selling their art
3.  about 71% of fine artists make under $24,000/year
4.  there are only 56,900 artists/craftspeople in the entire country (as counted by the BLS)
5.  the median income for those 56,900 artists/craftspeople is $43,470 per year, or about $21/hour (don't ask me how that figure jives with the 71% making under $24,000 figure -- different sources, I think).

I'd say $43,470 annual income from doing what you love and not having a boss or having to work for the man is actually pretty good.  I'd certainly be thrilled to make anywhere near that much per year from my art.  Always the optimist.  Well, almost always, anyway.  :)___

Good technical info, so you don't end up making a painting that won't last.

I've got a short reprieve from working on the house, and my poor studio is stuffed full of half of everything from my storage room temporarily, soooo I am working in our new attic space on small works on paper.  I seemed to have started this months ago with a design drawing but no paint, and then forgot about it, so it was a perfect piece to get back to painting with.  I just now finished it.  I think a final photo may be a tad more red, less magenta.  

Do you think it is done?

Just got offered a custom URL for my G+ account, so I took 'em up on it.  I went with https://plus.google.com/+MarilynFennPainter/

Hope it doesn't ramify in any negative way.  Anyone know of the ups and downs?

One of My First Abstract Paintings in Encaustic

Clearing out my storage room last night, I came across one of my very early encaustic paintings.  Not a good photo, but anyway, I've always loved this one!

Finally, a Real Taboret

This just in, from Cheap Joe's (http://www.cheapjoes.com/joe-miller-signature-taboret.html), a gorgeous, well-made real taboret that can hold most of my painting supplies, and it provides a good-size surface for my palette.   I've been wanting one for over 20 years.  No more cheap plastic carts, cheap kitchen carts, or the too-small Elfa shelf cart I've been using the past few years.

I must say, I'm thrilled.  I got it on sale, plus with a further discount for signing up on their site.  The shipping charge was almost a killer, as it comes pretty much already assembled, so it's too big for UPS or FEDEX.  But even with the shipping charge, it was far less expensive than other good-sized, well-made taborets.

Now, to get back in the studio and paint!

A Second Spring

We had some awesome rains a couple weeks ago, and here's what happened afterwards...all the plants bloomed again as if it were spring!

Love it.  Most surprising are the redbuds and even more so, the Saucer Magnolia, which usually is about to first to bloom in spring, and lasts only a few days.  Most of these (not fabulous) pics were shot today or yesterday, except for the schoolhouse lilies, which may have just finished blooming, or maybe not.  We shall see.  :)

Office Space

From rough attic storage to an office in a mere 4 years!  ;)

Well, nothing much happened during most of that time -- a few months in the beginning, a few months in the end, and now, finally, I'm thrilled with my new office space.  Story in pictures in the attached album, should you be interested.  :)

Other areas of the attic are still in progress, but I'm going to take a break for a day or two.  Maybe even get back to my easel (woo-double-hoo!).

Finally!  My Homemade Desk is Done!!!

OMG, this took about 6 weeks, or maybe 4, if you subtract interruptions by out-of-town visitors (which were fun, of course, so I'm not complaining).  ;)

Ten feet 4 inches of custom desktop, made to fit so very tightly in this space.  Not counting for the immense amount of time spent, but including the store-bought cabinets, this whole system cost less than 2 corner desks from Ikea (and this one's not made of particleboard), and 1/4 of something semi-equivalent from Pottery Barn, neither of which were just what I wanted, or iow -- This!

And I learned a lot!  How to do a bunch of stuff, how not to do a thing or two, and that carpenters are awesome!  Seriously, carpentry requires so much focus, math, clear thinking, rethinking, measuring, measuring, measuring, and measuring again, fitting, cutting, adjusting, taking goodnote... more »

So, yes, mistakes were made, though luckily, nothing too big or unrecoverable.  If I were to do it over again (which, luckily, I don't need to), I learned a few things to do differently.  And I only cut myself once, on the Japanese style sharp saw, from trying to put the safety cover back on (can you say ironic?) - tiny cuts, not bad.

Now, to go clean up and put stuff away, and see if I can get my ancient computer working again!  Woo-hoo!

Progress...

Slow, but steady.  Now I have to wait hours between each glue-up of edging to table, due to the small number of clamps we own, but it's going well.  I'll use pipe and/or bar clamps for the other sides, but this 45 degree angle was a bit of a challenge.

Meanwhile, on the other side of the room, The cabinet is complete, except for ordering and installing doors, and the daybed is starting to take shape.  Yay!

Great Music Find

So, while I've been working in our attic room all summer, I've been listening to our old CDs, alphabetically, starting in the middle with the last Patty Griffin.  I've made it through 2 rows of CDs, with one more row of a detour through compilations: blues, 60's, a whole bunch of compilations of Austin musicians, most of the 1st 15 KGSR Broadcast albums.  This is a fine way to discover music you forgot you had.

Tonight's fabulous find is this:

a very swampy version of Blueberry Hill by Bruce Coburn and Margo Timmons.  My husband (who tends not to like Bruce Coburn) is even liking this album.

Check it out.  :)

Finishing my 10 foot-long desk, finally!

I put 4-6 or maybe 8 coats of oil-based varnish on each side of the 7 pieces that go into making my new humongous desk (plus dyed and varnished 3 cabinets), so that whole process seemed to take forever, as I usually had to wait 24 hrs. for each coat to cure.

Now I'm attaching the center black piece to the two 5 foot wide side pieces, using pocket holes.  Made my first pocket holes ever today, and got one side attached.   :)

Plus, check out my fantastic new cutting/work table, in white, 4th pic.  Got it and assembled it last night.  I love it!  It's got a 40" x 60" very flat work surface (unlike the plastic slightly concave fold-up table I've been working on). The 4 legs fold in and the 2 sides fold down, so it collapses into a little table only 14" wide -- all on casters so I can roll it out ofthe w... more »

Someday, this room is going to be fabulous. I see it taking shape, but never could have imagined it would take so frigging long!  But I'm not rushing the wood mongery part, because you can ruin weeks' worth of work in the blink of an eye, and I'd like to avoid that, if possible.  :)

More soon....___

I'm closing in on completing my desk building project...

...and Terry has finished building his first ever piece of furniture -- this huge cabinet, which I need to add trim to and then paint (and we need to order doors for it).

Feels so good to be getting close to finishing these projects, but we have so many more to go!   Someday...someday...our lives will return to normal, or rather, a new and improved normal.  :)

Love this!

Beware of the spread of Degenerative Cubism. Early symptoms can include a loss of perspective, the gradual replacement of nuanced shades with distinct colors separated by clear lines, being overwhelmed with a variety of simultaneous perspectives, and finally being reduced to a simple sketch of a few lines.

Art Crits

I had a great crit with artist friends yesterday.  There are 3 of us who have been meeting every few months for several years, but we hadn't been able to meet in about a year-and-a-half.  It was so wonderful to get together again and see the major strides we've all made in that time.

Our work is so different from each other!  One artist's work is figurative and all about ideas, with social commentary and great humor.  She's working in collages and prints a lot right now, and has a piece in this year's ArtPrize in Grand Rapids.  Her work keeps maturing and the printmaking aspects are so beautiful: the textures, the colors, the delightful offbeat compositions and imagery.  So good!

My other friend's work has generally focused on the sky: clouds and landscapes, and he paints in an Old Masters style with layers and layers of glazes.  The finishes on his paintings are incredible.  His new work is a real departure from the work he is known for: he wants to get away from referencing the Old Masters by working more alla prima, in deeper hues emphasizing the bowl of the sky as one looks directly up, with bits of buildings or trees in silhouette around the edges.  I love the abstract shapes of the silhouetted bits.  I'm very excited by his new direction, and look forward to seeing it develop as he works bigger again.

They haven't seen my new work before, and I'm thrilled to say, they both feel I'm really onto something here.  In this work, I wanted to get away from the potential boredom of circles I was stuck on for awhile.  I am aiming to push the compositions to the edges, beyond that center space I had become too comfortable with, which had become too static and predictable.  

I am trying to create shapes that are made of more-or-less singular brushstrokes, so that the shape and the brushstroke are one.  I'm also pushing the colors more than I have -- sometimes in softer directions, sometimes harsher; more discordant or more harmonious, sometimes darker or lighter; all while trying to use only 6 or 8 tube colors.  These works are in acrylic as well, the medium with which I am least experienced and least comfortable.  :)

And finally, as one of my friends noted, the move back from square to rectangular canvases seems to give a better arena for good compositions to happen.  Both of my friends had some great notions about how to proceed on a large piece I got stuck on before being distracted by all the remodeling efforts.

I really value my art crits with these great artists and even greater friends.  I always learn so much from their very different perspectives.

One thing I learned yesterday is that I cannot simply make a large painting of a smaller study, as my process is one of discovery, in which this bit paint is on top of that bit of paint, and much of the beauty of the final piece has to do with the layers of history in the painting that, while you may not see all of them once the work is "done," all previous bits still add so much to the overall piece.  Trying to blow it up bigger only makes for a facile painting -- too easy with no struggle and no discovery.

Do you have crits with artists in your area?  How valuable do you find them?

Slo-o-o-o-ow Progress on the Desk Varnishing

Wouldn't you know, just as soon as I started doing the varnishing on my desk parts, the humidity in Austin went way up.  It's even been spitting rain periodically.  All of which slows down the curing time of oil-based varnish...a lot!   :(  

And there's only so much space to lay this stuff out to cure.  And I'm wiping it on, which is probably a thinner application than brushing, so more layers -- but also less room for screwing it up, so I haven't made too many mistakes so far.  :)

My husband took over the cabinet building project, and is doing a bang-up job!  His first furniture building project.  I think it's going to be the strongest cabinet ever built. And he's patient enough to let me paint the insides before he attaches them, so I won't have to get a head full of paint fumeslater.  ... more »

Dying Cabinets Ebony

So I decided to dye-stain my desk cabinets ebony, which will still allow the wood grain to show through, but just darken the color to not quite black.  One more round of dying on the 1st cabinet, then varnish; then do 2 more cabinets before I tackle varnishing the birch desktops.  When I'm done, I hope it'll look sort of like the mockup in the 2nd photo, but maybe a bit less dense of a black.

Would love to bleach the birch tops whitish, but I found out the price for the 2-part wood bleach would probably be about $160, not including shipping, so that is out!  Oh, well, natural birch color, it is, then.  :)

Love My New Flat Files and Old Light Fixture

Hung a couple of my favorite little paintings (Catfish and Catbird salt and pepper shakers), planted a bag of stuffed animals (more subjects for paintings, for when I'm in the mood for still lifes -- in case that ever happens again!), and now I've got a nice large spot on top of my flat files for an even larger self-healing mat.  

I scrounged this light fixture from the garage, but originally it had been my dad's -- one of a set of two that I painted red and hung from a switched cord.  I think the other one is moving to this room soon, too.  It's taking forever, but this room is starting to shape up.  Yay!

The last thing will be building custom bookshelves over there on the left, but we're still a long way from that!
