New work in progress. 22/12/17

A new work in progress and along the lines of ‘Tongue In Cheek’ completed recently and on my website. This is a much smaller piece and is painted on Ampersand board as opposed to deep canvas.  It will give a smoother finish when it is finished. The large mouth is the second part of a street art painting I saw being painted by the wonderful street artist @krishnamalla last year at Upfest (urban paint festival that takes place on the street where I live in Bristol every year.  It is more to scale than the ‘Tongue In Cheek’ work, and as yet I don’t have a working title.  Any ideas please from fellow Twitterarti or Instagrammers?!  Please look at past blogs here on my website to see more of my thinking on preserving street art in my own paintings. I always seek the street artists’ permission to use their work in my own compositions.

‘Tongue In Cheek’. Completed 05/12/27

One of my followers on Twitter came up with this title.   A bit rude perhaps, but it made me smile, and at this time of year, we so need a bit of humour.  I hope it won’t cause offence Please see my previous blog to give you details of why and how I painted this piece.  @krishnamalla is a fine street artist and I have his permission to use his work here.  The mouth is actually part of a street art painting involving two mouths and I am painting a smaller work using the other mouth.  At the moment I am using 2ft square canvasses, but am aware not everyone wants a canvas on their walls this big – many of us live in smaller houses these days – so this second painting is on a much smaller canvas.  More on this next week. If you would like to be kept up to date with what I am up to in the near future, please sign up for my Newsletter at the top of the Home page. I send these out quarterly.   I am also on Twitter, Instagram and have a Facebook page called Miche Artist as well…

New work in progress. 29.11.17

A new work in progress featuring the art of street artist @krishnamalla Krishna Malla.   I saw this artist at work during Upfest last summer down at Ashton Gate Football Stadium.  Upfest (Urban Paint Festival) is held each year on North Street, Bristol, the street where it just so happens I live.  Street artists from all over the globe descend on North Street and it has now spread farther around the area including this year for the first time the football home stadium of Bristol City. I have adapted Krishna Malla’s piece to suit my composition and have his permission to use the work.  Street art disappears over time and I want to preserve some of this wonderful work for the future in my own paintings.  I have added a touch of humour placing my trademark woman bending over to adjust her shoe strap just as the mouth is about to bite her bum.  Juvenile perhaps, but it does draw the eye in. I am looking forward to getting down to the detail next week once the paint has dried.  In the meantime I shall be starting a smaller similar work.  Watch this space. If you would like to be…
