Untitled 12


Really happy with the way this one turned out. I also love how it looks different at different times of day, due to changing light. So far I'm enjoying doing these Rothko-style paintings (except for having to use Liquin--ugh) .

Still haven't gotten around to looking at easels for sale in person. Have looked at some online, but it's hard to imagine what they look or feel like or just how big they are, from just a photo. And the biggest problem I foresee (besides prices) is that these things have to be assembled. Oh god. At our house, no one is handy with tools. Maybe I'll ask the cats. (The old easel is such a cheap thing that it could just be carried into the studio with one hand, after traveling in the back of the car.)

Thank you all for participating in the de-lurkage! It gives me a warm feeling (similar to these two below) just to know that a lot of people are enjoying my blog. You don't need to start leaving comments--I just like knowing.

I'd love to see this in person, Jala, and bet the colors give a different feel in different lighting. I've never been that crazy for Rothko but the glow and vibration in these recent paintings of yours is going to send me back for another look.

Love the colors in this one. You are so good at abstract.

ahhhhhh, soft and warm, just what is needed on these cold snowy days.

Let me know if you find an equal substitute for Liquin, since it is a CL classified material. I have looked but can not find out why exactly it is classified as hazardous. Do you know?

Thanks for your help today! Loriann

gorgeous color combos, and love the symmetrical snoozers.

this one glows... vibrates actually... Rothko would be so pleased.

I'll bet this looks different as the light changes! This whole series just hums, Jala.

I left you an award. Come get it!

Beautiful glow!

The kitties look like a living Yin/Yang symbol. So cute.

I presented you the Sunshine Award and just noticed that you already had it from someone else... That must say that you're a veeeery creative blogger!

Kelley Carey MacDonald said...

Jala, this is so ethereal - Rothco, Smothco - it is pure Jala. And the kitties! I also presented you with the Sunshine Award -YOU ROCK!

Sorry, I don't have any awards for you but I do love this beautiful atmospheric painting. I really like your color combinations in your abstracts. Really nice work.

Jala - It's been awhile but stopped by and was stunned by the beauty of this work. There is a resonance, a depth that one sinks into, a field of reverie -- wonderful!
