New Painting & LND; Girl & Animals

Something about a girl or young woman. Later I was sitting at a table with Charles & others. We had to come up with a list of animals that don't moult or shed their skins. Charles kept saying "African animals" over & over.

The painting was inspired by a copper wire sculpture I saw years ago that reminded me of a dancer. I used irridescent white in the background to catch the light because I wanted some sparkle. I don't like naming paintings, have a hard time doing it & this is no exception;

I like your work, Lana. Can you tell me which paintings are available before I surf your blog? I live on the northshore, so that shipping would be minimal. Sent an email, but I don't think it went through. Having ISP problems today. Great blog, btw.

Billy said...

PS. If you want, you can go to my blog and then email instead of trying to put a long list in a response. Whatever you prefer.

Lana Gramlich said...

Thanks, Billy! Sorry I didn't get your e-mail. Most of the artwork on my blog is for sale, actually. I can only think of 4 off the top of my head that wouldn't be (relatively speaking);

1. "Misty Autumn Morning" (My husband loves the original. I'd be glad to do a repaint for you, however.)
2. "Great Blue Heron" (recently sold. Again, I'd be glad to repaint, as I already have at least 4 times.)
3. "Birds of Rhiannon" (sold in Nov. Currently working on a repaint, actually.)
4. "Tulips at Night" (dragon pencil sketch, actually. Original was sold years ago. All I have left is a single laser copy & to be honest, I don't know that I'm up to re-drawing this one.)

Everything else should be for sale, I believe. Let me know what you might be interested in & we can take it from there. Feel free to try my primary e-mail address; ljackman@wildblue.net (in some cases, e-mails to my secondary addresses go straight to spam & I never see them.)

I curious what animals did you come up with. I realize it was a dream but I've been sitting here trying to think of an animal that doesn't shed or moult. Are there any?

Donnetta Lee said...

Percy, my toy poodle, doesn't shed or moult!

I LOVE the painting. You are so creative. Send a little of that creativity my way.

Miladysa said...

Yes, I can see the dancing princess.

Love the colours you have used here.

Great work :]

Lana Gramlich said...

Travis; It was more about animals that don't shed or moult all at once, really, in which case there are lots.

Donnetta; Thanks. :) You're pretty creative yourself, you know!

Miladysa; Thank you. I wanted to use "girly" colors for this one & think the swirly lines captured the movement well.

That's very cool, Lana. It does bring out a dancer -- it might also bring out "African animals" . . .

I've been recalling more dreams lately, anxious ones lately. Onbe shouldn't watch Blue Collar late at night while living in Detroit. Car chases, pursuits, etc. refracted in dreams. In one, I couldn't control driving an old station wagon and reversed it at high speed into a parked Cadillac. Weird stuff like that.

Lana Gramlich said...

Erik; Thanks for the kind words on the painting.
Backing into a Cadillac? Fight the power, man! ;) *L* Are you recording your dreams, too?

Billy said...

Lana, thanks for the info! (My ISP was messing up my service big time ysterday.) I will take a look at what's available :)

Charles Gramlich said...

"That's a right purty paintin' there young lady," he says laconically, leaning against the wall, hat tipped low and a straw of wheat between his teeth.

Lana Gramlich said...

Billy; Got your e-mail this time. :)

Charles; "Why good sir," she replies in her best Southern drawl (still tainted with Canadian,) "I'm afraid your kindness has given me the vapors." *LOL*

Natural Woman said...

Chris said...

I love the colors you used for this painting, very beautiful! It does look like a dancer!

Lana Gramlich said...

Natural Woman & Chris; Thank you! It was fun to do, a good break from more stressful paintings. :)
