Calendar Girls 2016

I haven’t been posting in awhile so it is time to catch up!  It has been a very busy winter. I had a knee replacement October 26th. I am happy to say it feels great and I am thrilled to be out of pain.  I have been busy making sketches and preparing for summer open studios (if you can imagine that).

I hope you enjoy seeing these pieces. If you are interested in any of these,  you should know that they are all framed and available for sale. You can email me at susanmedyn(at)cox.net.

Have you found Mr. Beads?

You will know where the title comes from.

Post knee replacement days are filled with exercise, pain, icing, medication, and exercise.

Hoping David does all the cooking this Thanksgiving.

Ink on Aquabord

My newest drawing that I will be painting over the next few weeks.

I am still trying to find a publisher for an adult coloring book. This has been a major challenge for me but I am persistent.

I think this would make a wonderfully meditative coloring page.

Hot Tamale!

I am going back to doing more works on watercolor paper as I have better control of colors than on Aquabord.

This was done a while back, but I always have loved all the conversations going on. Can’t you just see the tall figure on the right scolding the poor man with the beret. I have no idea what he has done, but she isn’t happy.  Also the green and yellow creatures seem to be having quite an intent discussion. Most fun to me are the 3rd and 4th creatures from the right. Usually my creatures are communicating to one another or listening, but these 2 are posing!

This is a 14″ by 11″ Ink and Watercolor framed in a hand made cherry frame.

Bumble Puss Takes A Rest

BUMBLE PUSS TAKE A REST ©

It is always a gift to have good friends to lean on. These cool rainy days make the peach colored  bumble puss tired. Luckily his friend is the perfect size to lean on. If you are wondering if there is a bumblebee in the painting, he is all dressed up in red and blue waiting to get some nectar from the poppy blossoms.

I hope everyone has fared the torrential rains safely.  My husband always said of global warming that the pot boils more furiously and we sure are having tremendous fluctuations in our weather patterns.

If you are near Arlington, MA on thursday May 8th, I will be at a Meet The Artist Event (me) at The Artful Heart Gallery in Arlington Center from 6-9PM. Stop in for some wine and cheese and to see my new work. Save the date as I would love to see you all.

6″ x 6″ Ink and Watercolor on Aquabord. $100.

Do You Think They A Couple?

Do You think they are a couple?

Working on this new painting. The two creatures on the right are wondering whether the cat and giraffe are a couple. What do you think?

The bunny part of a new work.

NEW WORK PART OF

I have been working on a few pieces, taking time out from each to let them sit before I continue to work on them. I haven’t finished any recently as I have been moving in between them but thought I would post part of a 9″ by 12″ work on aqua board.

Thanks to all who signed up for my blog. I have a winner from the last 20 blog followers.  It is a lovely woman who bought my photo through Etsy. Well that is a nice surprise.

I love seeing the April daffodils and the early white forsythia blooming in our yard.

Happy Monday to all.

SHE’S ON TOP! DAY 15 OF 30 PAINTINGS IN 30 DAYS.

SWIRLY SKIES

I almost dumped this painting. I drew it one day in pencil, inked it another and painted it for 10 hours ( yup 10 hours) today. And I was not happy with the background. It was too dark. So I changed the color of it and painted the background gold.

It did not look right. My husband, knowing my frustration suggested I run it under the sprayer in the kitchen sink to see what would happen.

Well, my painting appeared!

I was so surprised. The gold was made from  mica chips and titanium white paint and it all washed away. So here is my very 20 hour day 15 painting.Of course it is another of my jungle type Rousseau paintings Medyn style. It is named for the little lady sitting on top of the world and enjoying herself.

This is an 8″ by 10″ Ink and Watercolor on Aqua Board. It is framed in a wood shadow box frame that is painted black. It is for sale for $450.00.

HIDE AND SEEK, DAY 11 OF 30 PAINTINGS IN 30 DAYS

cat in poppies

 

y daughter asked me to paint more poppies and I am happy to add these soporific flowers into my paintings. I originally started out with a bunny again but our orange tabby Arthur was posing so sweetly that I  changed the painting to include him. I continue to make Henri Rousseau like paintings and will have several in the Art Naif Festival in Katowice Poland this summer.

This is a 5″ by 7″ Ink and Watercolor painting on Aqua Board and includes some of my imaginary plants and creatures. To purchase click on the buy now button or contact me at susanmedyn(at)cox.net

Meadowlands, Day 9 of 30 days of 30 paintings

MEADOWLANDS

Thought I would paint an abstract meadow.  I have loved the snow melt these past 2 days. Every morning there has been a wonderful fog covering the landscape.

This is a 5″ by 7″ painting on aqua board that is varnished and ready to hang. I have made it to day 9 of Leslie Saeta’s challenge and I am determined to complete a painting each day of the full 30 days.

It is wonderful meeting other artists and seeing their work. I am so pleased with the connections I am making. I even plan to trade a painting with one of the wonderful painters in this challenge.

This painting is for sale for 50.00 plus shipping.
