This piece I created in high school. It was actually the first time I realized that I could actually learn how to paint. This one was done with acrylics, which I find are easiest to work with. Each student in class was required to recreate a painting from a famous artist. I chose this skyscraper painted by Georgia Okeeffe. Below you will find a picture of the real piece.
It may not look exactly the same.... but this is what got me started.
This is a fun piece that I made out of cut out colored cardstock.
This was a project that was done completely in pen and ink. It helped the class to pay attention to the textures found in everyday objects.
I created this picture in photoshop. I'm not sure why but I have always loved it!
This is the Goat Island Lighthouse in Maine. I made this painting for my mother in law after we saw a piece by Frederic Kohli at the Big E that she liked. I tried to copy his style of painting and also create some sentiment by painting a lighthouse that my mother in law was familiar with. Below is an image of the origional picture of the lighthouse and also an example of a piece by Frederic Kohli.
This picture is an altered image of my younger brother that I painted!
A few of my pieces are unfinished. And honestly its possible that they will stay that way. Hopefully I will find the motivation to complete them.
The is the start of a recreation of an piece of art done by Edward Hopper called Chop Suey.
This is another recreation that I started. The origional is by Klimpt. Its called Mother and Child. I changed the picture a little by making the mother a brunette - like me (and my aunt and many other women)! I started this for my aunt who was pregnant but I am sad to say that its incomplete and my Aunt's baby is now 6 months old! Where did my motivation go?
This is the origional by Klimpt. I have a long ways to go until completetion.
I hope you enjoyed some of my artwork. I will post more as soon as I make it and hopefully I give a little insight on how to paint or draw!
