New Painting (Updated)

Dreamscape
24x12" acrylic on gallery-wrapped canvas

I did a quick study of this last October, but the idea still kicked around in my head, begging for more detail. This final version is the result of a lot of long, hard work.
Unseen in this scan are various light effects that cause the painting to change subtly as one moves around it in "real" life. Irridescent paint catches the light in the sunbeams and nebula, on highlights on the mermaids & the edge of the planet. With gloss varnish, it also creates some of the stars. Metallic gold paint creates similar effects in the nebula and the comet's tail.

OMG, This is beautiful. And when I clicked over here, after reading your last post and worrying about you, then seeing this!
Can I tell you I got the very strong feeling that you have been liberated!!! Look at this painting!
The feeling of gliding, happily and peacefully...such a whimsical quality about this one. And how you blend the colors is masterful. It's simply and utterly stunning. You're really selling this one? I don't know, its background (coming from one of your dreams) and how it coincides with a period of doubting... I'd hang on to this and enjoy it for a while. (Heck, I'd find it hard to part with ANY of my paintings if I were an artist! At least as a writer, books that are published are everywhere. You never really part with them)

More rambling, sorry.

But did I say this painting is GORGEOUS!!!

Yes, I saw how much work you put into this one, but I think it is just perfect now.

Hey lovely,

This is just BEAUTIFUL! Makes me happy to see it! I'm glad you shared it with us.

Yes, this is so pretty and calming! The nebula is wonderful, one of my favorite subjects!

Your nature photography is also so beautiful, why don't you publish a book of your photos? Or have you?

:-)

I've found that my writing suffers the most when I question why I'm doing it. If you enjoy your art--your paintings suggest that you do--then quit second guessing yourself. (Then again, who am I to give advice? I'm just a convict teacher.)

I love the way it soars! And the colors!

Doson said...

You clearly put a lot of effort into thinking about light and shadow and highlight. Do you have a conscious theory about how to use special effects (a conscious "Lana style"), or do you just look at the painting and see what's missing?

I was wondering what I had been seeing in my glass of late.
Ah, the artist always explains. :)

And I thought this was glorious!

I like the colors and the bit of whimsy.

Too freaking cool! You've just redoubled my hope that your quitting forever is like the couple of times I quit tattooing forever. What I'm saying, I hope it doesn't take! :D

I like how the water turns into a starry sky.

I know you might not want to hear this right now, but your work really is outstanding! Do you know what I love best in this painting? I love how the gallaxy colors in space are perfectly blended and did not turn to mud!They held their true color but came together to form a wonderful presence. If you do art for yourself and nobody else and you can't go wrong :)
Much love,
Chris

Lana, this is a wonderful painting! Mermaids who are free and yet connected with the universe.
