Roses, Roses and more Roses

“Since 1890, the Tournament of Roses has produced America’s New Year Celebration, bringing the traditions of the Rose Parade and Rose Bowl Game to Pasadena and the world for nearly 130 years.” (website: here)

In honor of this event every New Year and because we now live close to Pasadena, I thought I would honor this tradition with prints of rose blooms and believe it or not, our roses are in bloom throughout our yard. Happy New Year and here’s to a great 2019 for you and yours!!

“Orange Rose Bud”

Architectural Lines – Abstract Fun

In creating abstract art, I like to take simple subjects and create bright colorful art prints. I have attached four art prints that started as simple linear architectural lines. I used a fauvism technique which lends itself to abstract art with bold surreal colors and exaggerated shapes.

The first print is architectural detail around windows on a Frank Lloyd Wright designed home in Grand Rapids, Michigan.

The second art print comes from the same home…

the third art print is a row of flood gates along a river…

and the final print is an old railroad car.

Hot Air Balloons – Old World Charm

I have featured Hot Air Balloons a few times on this blog. I find them fascinating and have presented them in a variety of fashions from colorful abstracts to actual photography. Today I am featuring four art prints where I used a “gothic” technique that replicates an oil painting style of that same name. For us today in paintings, the style generally creates an old world look with rich and warm earth-tone colors that we generally associate with medieval Europe into the  renaissance period.

I did this series for a client a number of years ago and featured one of the prints (not one I am posting today) back in 2014. I liked the series so much I ended up using it in one of our guest rooms.

Colorful Sky with the Space Needle – Featured Art Prints

As a departure from last weeks black and white photography, this week I want to look at a very colorful sky I created as a backdrop to the Seattle skyline. Using a fauvism technique to create the bright colored sky and abstract look, I have attached two art prints that are just slightly different.

In the first print “Space Needle Colorful Sky”, I centered the Space Needle as a focal point with the buildings of downtown part of the background.

 

In the second print “Space Needle Fauvism Style”, I put the Space Needle off-center to the right to allow the downtown buildings to become more prominent in the overall look. 

My initial reaction between the two was the Space Needle centered, but then I was pulled to the Space Needle on the right side for the reasons I stated…..Thoughts?
