HAPPY NEW YEAR TO YOU

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

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

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.

Striking Modern Abstract Landscape

Fresh out of my studio just completed this striking abstract landscape. I wanted to create a peaceful minimal abstract for a modern master bedroom. She is called “Slumber My Darling”.

I also wanted it to be imposing so chose to create this on two canvases as a diptych to create a large piece when joining the two canvases together. Each canvas was 24 x 30 and therefore the finished piece is 60″ in length.

How to work with Golden Open Acrylics

I had the pleasure of attending a workshop experimenting with Golden Open Acrylics by Chris Cozen.

These open acrylics were created to remain workable for longer periods of time than the regular heavy body and fluid acrylics. They are formulated with an optimum balance of pigment load and 100% acrylic polymer dispersion to produce a paint with a uniquely relaxed set of working characteristics and a versatility that allows artists to explore a wider range of techniques such as portraiture and landscape painting that rely on softening, shading, glazing and creating fine detail. They remain wet on the palette for extended periods and you can mix them with any other Golden mediums and paints to reduce their open time or you can mix them with specially formulated Open Mediums to keep them workable for the maximum time. There is even an Open Thinner which will make the paint workable again once it has begun to dry.
