Another Painting & End of Voting (Updated)

I painted this one a little while back. It was hard to photograph, as the metallic gold paint misbehaves in the presence of my flash.

4 Pagan Women
Acrylic on 18"x14" canvasboard

In other news, today (July 31st,) is the last day to vote for my photo in the contest. It's the bottom square in the "photography" column (the sunset at the beach, if you're not familiar with it.) The winner will be announced by August 10th.
(Update; My photo didn't win the art contest.)

Man, the site wouldn't load tonight. I finally had to shut every window down. I'll try after I finish everything else.

charles; I think it was all the Pink Floyd videos I was downloading from YouTube bogging our system. Sorry!

At the risk of sounding stupid, I assume the title of the work refers to the artist as the fourth Pagan Woman? Or is the Fourth Pagan Woman the omnipresent goddess not physically represented but symbolically so?

Lana Gramlich said...

stewart; Actually she's in the painting. You just have to look for her. ;)

Intsead of using flash, have you tried taking the painting outside and shooting in the shade? Metallic paints are difficult, but sometimes you can catch subtleties that a flash would wash away...

Um, that 4th one, did you, uh, press against the canvas? The background kinda seems a little two-tone. Or is that just my overactive imagination?

*Really* cool painting, btw!!

Lana Gramlich said...

Steve; That's how I finally got this picture, actually. *L* The 4th woman is certainly less distinct/detailed than the other 3. I'll give you a hint--turn the image upside down...

I'll have to post the formal answer (if no one gets it,) later in the week. ;)

What lovely colors.

Hugs, JJ

Lana Gramlich said...

jj; Thanks! I think the coloration is what might keep this from selling, actually, but you never know!

All; The 4th "woman" is the yellow circles & triangle when the work is turned upside down.

JR's Thumbprints said...

My initial reaction had been that the 4th "woman" was a culmination of the other 3. To turn the painting upside down, in some odd way, makes the 4th "woman" much more powerful than the others. I'm not sure why. Just my opinion.

Lana Gramlich said...

jr; Cool...Thanks! :)
