A Painting -Only a Close-Up

I had to get some business cards prepared since I will be going to an event. As I was working on them, I took a picture of a close-up of one of my paintings. I thought that I would share a couple of the close-ups with you guys so you can see what I’ve been up to lately. I greatly apologize that what you are about to see will be of great disappointment when compared to the other Tamale works that have been posted. I guess that’s why I should just stick to writing. Anyways…

I couldn’t get a full shot of my painting, because my studio is a little cramped right now since I’m stretching a bunch of canvases (I’m working on a series using mixed-media. Each painting is 36”X36” –yes, I'm working with squares). When I get more room in there, I’ll attempt to get standard-sized pictures of some of my completed pieces.

And now, let the criticizing begin.

  1. hey this is a pollock! It's hard to get away from that kind of reaction..

  2. Pollock didn't paint in squares!

  3. My other pieces don't look so reminiscent (I swear). This was my first one and I needed to practice using my tools so I knew the effects they gave. I have another one that is covered in talc and I use other materials like chicken wire and headlights.
