NZ Art Guild Theme Week - Lines

Every fortnight NZ Art Guild members are given 2 weeks to complete an original artwork based on a certain theme. This week the theme was LINE.

Once all the images are uploaded to the private forum - members can then vote for the artwork/s they think best suit the theme and for the one they think is the most original interpretation. The winning artworks are then displayed on the NZ Art Guild website - So check it out to see which were the favs!

TITLE: Rock My Soul
MATERIALS: Acrylic, plaster of paris and resin on canvas
SIZE: 30cm x 20cm x 3.5cm
FOR SALE: contact me

Classic colours of red, black and gold. The piece down the centre is made of plaster of paris and has a fabulous texture with lots of twists and turns. The whole piece is then covered in resin giving it an amazing glassy appearance.

This was inspired by "Rock My Soul in the Bosom of Abraham" - more specifically the words - "so high you can't get over it, so low you can't get under it, so wide you can't get round it, oh rock my soul" This was a song that my father used to play on records (yes those old things! lol) when we were VERY young ;) My sister and I just LOVED it!! Again and again and again - as you do when you're kids! hehehehe

TITLE: Drawing the Line
MATERIALS: Acrylic and modelling paste on canvas
SIZE: 20cm x 20cm x 3.5cm

This piece is heavily textured with modelling paste and has many layers of colours.

The phrase "draw a line in the sand and move forward" inspired this piece. Sometimes it's not that easy to just draw one "line". Sometimes you have to be pateint and repeat the act several times before you can truly move forward.

Another one of my emotional pieces with the texture symbolising lifes ups and downs and the colours the ranges of emotions.

Phew! Where has the last month gone?!?!?

Havent been painting much at all. But I have had a little play with a couple of things and hope that my hectic life will quiet down enough so that I can paint some new and fabulous artworks for the exhibiton in June! Now, if you want to know whats kept me away from the brushes all this time - check out the new NZ Art Guild website.

My first project for the last month was to complete my "patch" for our family "patchwork painting that we are doing. This is my sons "project" so hes chosen the colours - the designs - how many patches are going to be given out and to who.

The other thing I did was play around with colour combinations for my dot series. Some were just not suitable for public viewing! lol

The other two pieces I completed were older ones I reworked.

Here's one of them -
