Happy New Year

 

HAPPY NEW YEAR TO YOU

Wishing you a year full of love, joy, health and color

and lots of original art!!!

As we welcome a new fresh year with the energy of new beginnings I am excited and inspired to be working hard getting ready for my solo show at Venus Galleries in Palm Desert, California, USA on Feb 6.  To view an Evite please click on this link www.VanessaKatzArt.com/link/GalleryShow

I have been doing lots of pieces finished with poured resin and creating lots of heart paintings as the Gallery owner, Debra Mumm, requested hearts as the opening of the show falls just before Valentines Day.

A new little Zen series – Blanc de Blanc – Original abstract paintings by Vanessa Katz

 

6 x 6 x 2.5".  Acrylic, ink and gold leaf on deep gallery wrapped canvas finished with poured resin
Blanc de Blanc No. 7 by Vanessa Katz © 2014 6 x 6 x 2.5″. Acrylic, ink and gold leaf on deep gallery wrapped canvas finished with poured resin

Sepia, gold leaf and stainless steel are the main ingredients for this new little series.  Yes I used poured resin again – Why? Because imho it gives such a rich luscious look to most works.  It also makes the piece look finished and professional somehow!  What do you think?  Have you tried poured resin yet?  I will soon post all the things you need to resin yourself along with the type of resin I use – so stay tuned if that is of interest to you.

My Art and Creativity Crippled by Fear and Doubt

For many years I did not paint – I was afraid that it would not turn out the way I wanted, it would not be good enough, that I would make a mistake. So why even start. Looking at a blank white canvas was intimidating and it was easier just not to start. I often purchased new brushes and paints because I wanted and intended to paint however I was just crippled with fear with all the “What if's” going on in my head and could not bring myself to start. Then I would eventually pack up my art supplies and relegate them to the garage.

A weekend painting abstract tree landscapes

 

Vision Rouge by Vanessa Katz © 2012

It was wonderful to spend the entire weekend in my new studio working on abstract tree landscapes. This allows me to combine two of my favorite pastimes – painting abstracts and trees.

“Vision Rouge” is the first piece and is full of the most vibrant reds, rich and dramatic and crying out for attention. With the addition of some green gold landscape with chocolate brown tree trunks with more vibrant red trees. This piece is very dramatic because of the rich colors and bold contrasts.

Became a Member of Daily Painters Abstract Gallery

Circles In The Sand by Vanessa Katz

I just joined Daily Painters Abstract Gallery and posted my first canvas on their site. I chose a simple colorful very minimal abstract that I have just finished titled ” Circles In The Sand”. It measures 20 x 16 x 1.5″ and is gallery wrapped with the sides painted to match the canvas. I used the Golden Open acrylic paints with this piece. They are much slower drying and behave more like oils. This gives a very smooth creamy appearance with rich dramatic color density. If you have not tried them yet you are in for a treat
