What’s shakin’ at Rodzart 10-01-2010

Hi Folks. Happy weekend! I hope everyone has had a good week and a good weekend so far! This week we finished two paintings for you.

The first new painting for this week is 18 X 24 inch acrylic on canvas, which I entitled
Expression 1082
”Expression 1082”.

Now, on the surface this looks like just another line painting on a black background.
However, I did one interesting little this with this canvas. I intentionally blurred the paint running across the horizontal center of the painting.
Why? I suppose I could plead insanity on this one, but instead I’ll just tell you that it draws your attention to the painting, and makes you feel like “something’s strange” about this painting.

While I don’t intend to make a habit of this, I thought it was kind of a neat effect.

The next one for this week is the oil on paper I mentioned last week. It’s a 14 X 20 inch oil on watercolor paper, which is called
Expression 1083
”Expression 1083”. I rather like the way the colors play off each other in this painting.

Since it’s an oil painting, it’s going to take another week or so to dry, at which point I plan to offer it on eBay for maybe $25.00 plus shipping. I kind of figure that since this is an experimental technique, I’ll let this one go at a much lower price than I usually would. That way, if the paper rots away in a year or two you’re not out too much.

I don’t really have a rant this week, but I would like to bid a fond good-bye to Tony Curtis. He’ll be sadly missed and fondly remembered.

If you happen to be in the Brandon area, please remember that I’ve got six paintings hanging in “The Art of Hair” salon at 10963 Causeway Blvd., in Brandon. So, I hope you’ll drop by and check them out, and maybe get some great hair styling while you’re them.

If you’ve got a few bucks to spare, how about spending them on Haiti. There are a lot of good programs going on, my two favorites are, as always, Doctors without borders, they’ve got a link below. Also, The Clinton-Bush Haiti fund.

Here are a couple more sites I hope you’ll visit and support:
Doctors without Borders.
Katsel Tsi Chen Cho Kyi Ling Buddhist Meditation center.

I’m also on Twitter
Myspace and
Facebook
Look me up there if ya feel like it.

I hope everyone has a peaceful and prosperous week. See ya next time.
