Just finished this original watercolor painting. It’s an ACEO (sized always at 2.5×3.5"). I love doing art this size, it helps to really concentrate on the essentials. I was looking at the door of an old building, when I saw I was being watched back. This fluffy cat made a lovely subject for this painting. Thank you for looking. I have it listed on eBay – HERE
Art du Jour is pleased to announce our new member Deanna St. Martin who will be the featured artist in the main gallery for the month of March. Her vibrant, spontaneous paintings start out simply as she uses Halloween cobwebs to create the texture for the under paintings. She then sprays on liquid watercolors and manipulates the paint, moving it, brushing it and continuing to amend the painting. She uses watercolors, ephemeral, watercolor pencils, acrylics, watercolor paper and Yopo. St. Martin says, “The slickness of the Yupo combined with the viscosity of the paint interact perfectly to create chaos and out of chaos comes harmony of design.” Her inspiration comes from nature and things that she sees every day.
The works of two digital artists, Ron Hodgdon and Robert Sharp will be featured in the
