I can never manage good color field work. My hat is off to you, ma'am!

Hey Lana,

This is a beautiful piece of work. LOVE the colors! And the last one as well.

WOW! Just as good as the other one!

Master stroke.

Eat your heart out, abstractionist Mark Rothko.

steve; Thanks! It's a result of playing more than anything, I must admit. Maybe you need to play more, too. :)

michelle, BA & ivan; Thanks much. :) I appreciate it.

Demon Hunter said...

That's beautiful, Lana. Keep up the wonderful work. :-)

sorry, NOT a purple fan, the rest is marvy tho ;)

Ladybug said...

OMG, Lana ~ you are on a roll. Another stunning work of art! I love the textures as well as the colors.

Shauna Roberts said...

I really like this one too, especially the striations.

Charles Gramlich said...

Ahh, now here is Aurora. Sweet. This image seems to have come out better on the computer.

This is much better. No fire ants here ... and if it weren't for the title, I'd think of a small patch of land (like where you parked your cars during the hurricane) surrounded by water.

Great to see the arts going so good. I like the smoky burnt acrylic.

Only just caught up on how close you were to the storm and glad you both survived ok. Looks pretty foul!

Beautiful work Lana, the color is wonderful in this, and I love the title as well !!

Travis said...

I'm not usually a fan of this kind of painting, but I love your use of color. It has a terrific 3D quality to it.

Miladysa said...

This is dreamy :-D

Lana Gramlich said...

Thanks all. I appreciate the input. :)

jr; I hadn't thought of it that way, but now that you mention...

julie; Yeah, it wasn't a whole lot of fun, but at least everything & everyone's okay. :)

bernie; I'm really bad at naming my art--personally I prefer the image to speak for itself. I have to give full credit for this title to my hubby, Charles. He's a writer, so I figure he's more qualified, too. ;) *L*

These are really cool. Feels like entering the atmosphere of other planets . . .

Lana Gramlich said...

I love it. :)

sidney & tt; Thanks much. :)

Beautiful color composition. How different is it to paint in acrylic versus oil or watercolor? My mom preferred watercolor. That was back in the day when she painted--and could see. I miss her being able to paint. Well, she's still an artist at heart. Lovely, Lana.

Lana Gramlich said...

donnetta; Thanks. I've been painting with acrylics (primarily,) since I was 18. I like that it's water based & have gotten used to it's fast-drying tendency. I tried oils for a while, but I didn't like all the extra chemicals I needed (turpentine, linseed oil, etc.,) & I didn't like waiting forever for things to dry. In some sense, I still experience the watercolor side of things, as a lot of my works involve multiple washes (for example, the gold & purple horizontal stripes in this painting are washes, which is why they're so transparent.) Because of this, I've been considering playing with watercolors & almost bought a book of watercolor paper the other day. One thing that'd be a big difference, is that in watercolors, you "create" white by leaving areas of the paper unpainted (typically a masking chemical is involved.) With the acrylics, I apply white paint where I want it. In some instances I could do it watercolor-style (& have,) but that typically creates far more work than it's worth.
Do you happen to have any samples of your mom's work? I'd love to see it.

Donnetta Lee said...

Hi, Lana: You know, I don't have anything here at home any more. Wish I did. My brother has a couple of things she did. When she really got good (at least in our eyes), she was painting scenes of the little towns around where we grew up (partly) in southwestern Oklahoma. She sold some of them, too! She and I took art lessons together years ago--and she just kept going with it. We also had an art shop in southwestern Oklahoma for years, but never could make any money with it. I understand a little when you talk of the different paint mediums. I toyed with oils and they took forever to dry. Always wanted to do watercolors, but it looked so hard. Maybe one of these days after I retire I can try it. I do so love the colors in this one you've done. I have Icarte prints around the house here. And that's about the extent of my art knowledge. If I figure out a way to get you a picture of something of Mother's, I'll do it. Wish I hadn't gotten rid of so much through the years.

Donnetta; Thanks for the info on your mom's stuff. Of course I'm still interested in seeing her work, if that becomes possible at any point. I admire people who do buildings & towns & things. Straight lines are not my forte with a paintbrush, to say the least! Sorry to hear your art shop didn't work out so well. It can be very difficult in some areas, of course. In retrospect I wish I would've taken more of my grandmother's paintings when my mom died, but it was all so rushed & I didn't have room for anything, anyway. Sometimes life just gets in the way, I guess. Regret is proof of a lesson learned, I suppose. <:\

Nice fluid color flow! I wish I can see an aurora in real life, but your painting is just as good!

Lana Gramlich said...

chris; Awww...You're too sweet. :)

Mark said...

reminds me of something I might see in a .... rock! :-) Speaking of which, you were going to post one?

Lana Gramlich said...

mark; My mistake--I've been so busy w/other things lately. I will post the rock photo I referred to in your comments shortly! Thanks for the reminder.
