Contemporary Modern Abstract Art Paintings by Filomena de Andrade Booth

Night Song
30" x 30" x 1.5"
Acrylic on canvas

Last week I had the opportunity to work with another talented artist in my 3 Day Private Abstract Painting Workshop.  I always like to start the session by demonstrating my painting techniques.  I warn my students ahead of time that because I really don't start off with a definite idea in mind, my painting may not turn out.  They've seen me struggle as I bring a painting into completion and every once in a while, I fail.  But, I never give up.  There's always some gesso handy to cover up the "mess" and start over.  I remind my students that there are no mistakes, just happy accidents!

Night Song is the painting I did as a demo last week.  The colors in this work are vibrant and are accented with metallic gold paint.  My goal was to demonstrate layering techniques and the use of water to create visual texture.

Pineapple Still Life Painting, Best Deal, 14x18" Painting with Frame, Daily Painting, Small Oil Painting

Since moving (and downsizing) I'm trying to squeeze into a much small studio, with almost no storage space.


Purchase here

My solution......start a new section on my Etsy store, entitled "Best Deal".  I plan to feature a specific artwork, at a great price, and hopefully, my inventory will become more manageable.

Today, I am featuring this pineapple and mango  oil painting, in a custom frame.  The piece is framed to 19x23".  The painting shows the fruit sitting on glass, and may be purchased with or without the frame.

Marketing, in my opinion, is one of the hardest parts of being an artist.  I don't know any artists who enjoy this part of the game. I will let you know how this idea works for me.

Thanks for viewing my blog today.

Pear and Plum Still Life, Palette Knife Painting, Daily Painting, Small Oil Painting, 6x8" Oil on canvas panel, sold

Have not done a still life, or a palette knife painting for a while, so this one was in my comfort zone.

SOLD

I naturally tend to lean towards cool colors, so I had fun working all my favorite color relationships.



This scene is a repaint, from years ago.  I couldn't find the original photograph, but I did have a photo of the first painting, so I used that as a guide.  The first painting was done with a brush, which is why I decided to mix it up a little, by using a palette knife this time around.

Hope you enjoy it!

Mountain Wildflowers, Floral Landscape, Small Oil Painting, Daily Painting, 8x6" Oil on Panel SOLD

Last fall, we took a ride on the Blue Ridge Parkway.  It was a crisp, sunny day and my camera was busy clicking away.

SOLD



It's hard to go wrong with a blue and yellow painting.....it just shouts "Cheerful".  The background was painted  with a brush, but I used a palette knife on the flowers and grasses.  That's when it started to be really fun!

I feel like I was able to capture the feel of the day......I hope it made you smile!

Leave your worries behind. Join me in  paradise.  Once again the artist uses a mixing of viscosity, weights and balances of paints to come up with the unique balance of layering to transport the viewer to a place that is unseen by the naked eye.

Alligator Painting, Wildlife Painting, Small Oil Painting, Daily Painting, 6x8" Oil on Panel SOLD

These guys are not uncommon sights in Florida.  Sometimes you see them snoozing in the sun next to a road.  Golfer's here usually have a scary encounter to tell.

SOLD
This was my third attempt to paint this fellow.  I had difficulty getting the drawing correct, as well as the color.  The image I worked from was not exciting. Eventually, I think I worked it out.

Go gators!

Contemporary Modern Abstract Art Paintings by Filomena de Andrade Booth



This week I had the pleasure of having another talented artist attend my 3 Day Private Abstract Painting Workshop.  I'm always amazed at how each student approaches the difficult task of creating an abstract painting "out of thin air".  Taking a set of colors, a blank canvas and bringing everything to a successful finish is not easy.  But, I love seeing how every student takes those very basic elements and ends up with a successful painting.  I provide the basic instruction on the use of the materials, and with my guidance, they push themselves beyond what they thought they could accomplish.  

If you are at that stage where you need to get out of a painting rut and want to explore new possibilities,  please contact me to schedule a workshop here in my own studio in Inverness, Florida.

This is the painting I did as my demo this week.

Insect, Nature Art, “FIERY RED BEETLE" The Art of Nature, Fine Art by Mindy Lighthipe





This watercolor is of an "unknown" Beetle. I believe it is a "Flower" Beetle due to its shape. What really attracted me to it was the brilliant  iridescent red and orange colors.   It was challenging and fun to paint.
