New Painting & Camera (Updated)

I finished this painting late last night. It was inspired by some of the astronomical imagery between the scenes on "3rd Rock from the Sun."

"Edge of Night"
Acrylic on 10x8" gallery-wrapped canvas
(Update, Feb. 2011; I've painted over this to create Gone Fishin'.)

At today's art market, I had & took the opportunity to purchase a digital SLR camera and 2 lenses at an unimaginably great price. It's something like this & I'm greatly looking forward to the use of a telephoto lens again!

Hi Lana- What intense color, I like how the blue fades to black at the top right and where the red fades to black on the bottom left. Reminds me of mixing die in water. Congrats on the camera, digital SLR's rock.

Lana, another great painting! How long have you worked on this piece?

Rick said...

Lana, I wish I could tell you why I like this so much, but I just do!

Love it. Very vibrant and alive.

Scott said...

Lana, very nice painting! Oh, and congrats on the new camera, too.

Tom; Thanks. I'm greatly looking forward to the camera & will certainly post it's impending pictures here. The black in this painting is actually a very dark purple. I added a touch of white to it in the bottom corner to reveal a bit more of the color.

David; Thank you! This one was actually pretty quick. 2 or 3 hours, start to finish.

Rick; I appreciate that. :)

Drowsey; Thanks. I liked the contrast of the light & dark, the cool & warm.

Scott; Thanks & thanks! ;)

LOVE this piece Lana, and congrats on the new camera! That's awesome!

Lana Gramlich said...

Charles; Me, too!

Marvin; Thanks. I'm sure there'll be an adjustment period with the new camera--heck, I still hadn't mastered all of the features of my current camera--but I'm looking forward to the learning process (& better close-ups of our birds!)

roadgurl5; Thanks...Yes, I was quiet for about a week as I was busy with other things, but now I'm playing "catch up" to a certain extent. I have been trying to at least space out the posts to one a day, though!

Lisa; Thank you. :)
