Trying to Contain the Anger, #12

trying to contain the anger 12

This is the latest in the series/suite of  Trying to Contain the Anger. This actually worked up quickly. I want to go to a much larger format. Just have to see. I toned down the background with a brown but still allowed it to read as a red.

Trying to Contain the Anger, #11

This is the painting I did last October/ November. I posted the initial layer back on Oct 21. I finished this sometime last November. I am pleased with it. I wanted the figure to come out of the background and she kind of does although, it may be hard to see here. Anyway, 30″ x 30″. For me, this is one of my more successful paintings. The  colors work to create an over all mood of sadness but  also slow burning anger.

new year, new painting

I hadn’t realized just how long it has been since I’ve posted here. I finished the other painting that I wrote about previously and I’ll have to post a picture of it finished.

For now I want to put this new painting up. I really like the background color. It is just alizarian crimson thinned a bit.   This painting is 24″ x 24″. it is the first layer that I just started  today.

I’ve been sick the past 3 weeks with cough, congestion and wheezing. Not fun. I think I am finally over it although I still have congestion. I had no energy to do much of anything let alone paint. Anyway, the next painting on my easel.
