The Way of the Pilgrim - Abstract Painting by Texas Contemporary Artist Filomena de Andrade Booth

The Way of the Pilgrim
30"x24"x1.5"
Mixed media on canvas



I guess, that like most artists, I've accumulated tons of materials that can be incorporated into a painting.  This morning I decided to go through my "stash" and add some of them to this new painting.  Gold leaf and printed rice paper stood out and seemed to be just perfect for this heavily textured canvas.  After making some marks on the canvas to establish the composition, I started to wash in some color.  As I worked, I collaged the gold leaf and the printed paper.  I also decided to add some crackle paste, something that's been sitting on my shelf, but rarely used.  I slowly built up the surface of the painting with layer upon layer of glazed color until I finally decided that the painting was finished.  I sealed the canvas with several coats of acrylic varnish to enhance and bring out all the details that are "hidden" in the many layers of paint.

Desert Heat by Texas Contemporary Abstract Artist Filomena de Andrade Booth

Desert Heat
Acrylic on Canvas
24" x 30" x .75"
Sold
 
Here is another palette-knife painting I sold last year.  There's something about the directness of using a knife that is very appealing.  A brush is not the only way to apply paint to canvas.  Anything from sponges to fingers can produce interesting effects that are not possible with the traditional brush.  And, it's a lot of fun too!

Untold Story by Texas Contemporary Abstract Artist Filomena de Andrade Booth

Untold Story
Acrylic on Canvas
30" x 30" x 1.5"
Sold
 
 
I've been going through my files lately and found this painting that was sold last year.  I feel like I need to get back into doing some palette-knife paintings again.  It's a little more difficult working in acrylic than it is with oil, because of the shorter drying time.  But, still worth the effort, I think.

If By Chance - Modern Art Abstract Acrylic Painting by Texas Contemporary Artist Filomena de Andrade Booth

If By Chance
36"x30"x1.5"
Acrylic on Canvas


Have I mentioned before that I like to use a lot of texture in my paintings?  Yes, I certainly do! 
"If By Chance" has an almost stucco-like feel and is accented with stenciling and "graffiti".  I applied several layers of glazes to build up the color but still allow the undertones to show through.

Tuscany Wall Group Paintings by Texas Contemporary Abstract Artist Filomena de Andrade Booth

Tuscany wall grouping
Four 10"x10"x1.5 paintings
Acrylic mixed media on canvas


Here is how all four of my mixed media Tuscany series would look in a grouping.  I had a little problem working with my new Photoshop Elements 10.  Quite a learning curve for me! They've added an awful lot of new options compared to my old Elements 2!  Wish I could have centered the pictures better...I'm sure there must be an easy way to do it, but you get the "picture"!


I worked on a brand new painting today and will blog about it tomorrow.  In the meantime, I need to come up with a good title for it.

Tuscany II Modern Abstract Painting by Texas Contemporary Artist Filomena Booth

Tuscany II
10"x10"x1.5"
Mixed media on canvas

I've never been to Italy but a trip through the Tuscan countryside is certainly on my bucket list.  I'll be sure to take my old Jansen History of Art college textbook so that I don't miss a single Michelangelo or Da Vinci!

This painting is one of a series of four pieces that were inspired by the film "Under the Tuscan Sun".  Look carefully at the heavy impasto to see the little surprises that are imbedded in the paint.

Day Two of painting in progess

A Quiet Moment
40"x40"x1.5"
Acrylic on Canvas

If you've read my previous blog, you will see that my finished painting is completely different from what you saw in my last post.  Once the tomato plants were planted and the paint was dry, I decided to tackle the painting again.  I started to build up the layers of color and to define the composition.  After a while, the painting reached a point that felt "finished".

Day One - a photo journal of a new painting by Filomena de Andrade Booth - Texas Contemporary Abstract Artist

This is a pictorial journal of a new painting I started yesterday.  I don't start out with a preconceived idea in mind, so this is an adventure for you and me!

I stared with a textured 40"x40" canvas stretched on 1.5" deep bars.


 After a few charcoal markings on the canvas, I'm ready to start painting.





At this point I decided to go to the garden to set out my tomato plants.  The paint is still wet and I needed time to think about where to go with this.  Stay tuned to see the finished painting.  I think you'll be surprised how it ended up!
