A Well Pressed Shirt, portrait of working man

portrait painting, by Rasche
I am feeling very inspired to paint more of this sort of portrait – of people doing their thing. If you’re a local business owner, and it would be OK for me to come out and take pictures (or paint on site) of you or your staff cooking, tending the till, feeding cows, constructing a house… anything like that… call or send me an email.  

(This portrait painting is almost done with it’s museum tour!)

#10: Yin and Yang, blue abstract art


#10, Yin and Yang, 16×12″, acrylic on canvas, available.

This is my last of the 10 abstract acrylic explorations at this price. You can see the whole series here.

I’m going to get back to posting representational work in this newsletter. I’ll have a separate space for writing about and showing abstract works. If you’re interested in seeing that, click through here. 

 


I was excited to put a video in my last newsletter, but the image / video link didn’t show up. If you’d like to see that video it’s here.

#9, Water, 12×16″, available. I really like this one. Hope you like it too.

NASA inspired paintings, and blogging about it.


#8, Edge, 12×16″, acrylic on canvas. Available here: http://jessiesfineart.com/gallery/edge-12×16-abstract-art/

After these last 2 “acrylic explorations”, I’m going to go back to using this blog just for my representational paintings – hopefully lots of new mom or dad and baby portraits! And South Dakota and Minnesota landscapes.

I’m launching a separate website for my “Geographical Abstract” paintings, to not turn off the collectors on this list who read it for my representational works.

Many of the acrylic paintings I’ve been doing are inspired by photos NASA takes of Earth, so it’s almost like they’re just distant rather than abstract. They look at the same time like a microscopic picture and like a telescopic picture…

Here is Edge hanging on the wall.
