FINE ART PAINTINGS

by  Kathryn L Novak

The artist is a receptacle for emotions that come from all over the place: from the sky, from the earth, from a scrap of paper, from a passing shape, from a spider's web.

BLUE SMOKE RISING

This image of an elderly woman smoking a cigarette is done in two separate styles. First, the woman is painted in Black, White & shades of Gray as she is meant to be the backdrop rather than the focus of the painting. Secondly both the cigarette and the billowing smoke above her are painted in color. I wanted to draw attention to both smoke and cigarette. Take note of the details here such as the texture of the cigarette ash, and the red glow of the burning cigarette paper.
