NaBloPoMo Day Six - More Art

Day Six.

Since you seemed to enjoy my father's painting a few days ago, I thought I would share a few more of his works with you. And I am trying to distract myself from the post-election coverage, because the over-analysis of the whole process is frightening me. However, I do have to applaud Americans for the huge turnout. You rock.

At any rate - here is the first of the series:A little different feel than his last work. Dad does this as a hobby, but he has about 100 letter-sized sheets of paper with this type of work on it. I'm just sharing the actual paintings that are done on flat canvass. He has LOTS of them:I call this one "Anenome" because the little floweredy things remind me of sea anenomes, opening and closing on the ocean floor:I have no idea what Dad calls these works. He just piddles around with them.

I wonder if there is a market for this type of art? Thoughts?

I would think there would be a market for this stuff - I think it's beautiful!

storyteller said...

They’re each lovely and interesting … reminiscent of Jackson Pollack but more geometric.
Hugs and blessings,

Bond said...

Absolutely there is a market for his work.

He should find a small gallery near his home and see if they will hang some of his work on consignment.

Jay said...

Very cool. There's so much going on in each of those paintings that you can stare at them for a looooooong time and not see everything.

that's actually pretty damn good. i like the last one. that's better than the crap the art professors at my art college would produce. it's funny how these guys would have a show full of crap. this is something i'd hang on the wall behind my black leather couch.

I love the combination of colors he has used. I think bond had a good idea about finding a local gallery for consignment.

I'm trying to grasp a Dad that paints modern art. My Dad had a auto body shop and was an artist at painting cars. He also cut a mean filet from a bluegill and could keep you sitting for hours listening to his stories, but that's about as far as art went in my genetic background. His stuff is very good. I have a bit of real art I've bought from local shows not unlike this type of thing.

Oh, our daughter's have almost the same Halloween dress but hers is aqua and she left off the vampire thing and went for vamp instead.

Wow, I TOTALLY love these!! Would love to create a whole room around each one of those paintings. They are fabulous.

Kila said...

P.S. You wondered if there's a market for those. Hell ya! I'd pay big bucks for any one of them. Especially the last one. Can't stop looking at it.

I *LOVE* these! The first one though really draws me. It reminds me of whales and oceans for some reason.

Gorgeous stuff. Perhaps you should give it a whirl?

Desert Songbird said...

Love, love, LOVE the colors, and of COURSE there's a market for this. If crappy art can sell, then wondrous art can sell well.

sayre - many thanks, I'll have to pass these comments along to him.

storyteller - yes, more structured than Jackson, methinks.

bond - great idea! I'll pass it on. Of course, he lives in a community of artists...lots of competition.

jay - you know, I never looked at them that way, until you said it...you are so right!

m@ - you are making me think I need to market Dad's stuff. Seriously.

karmyn r - thanks, and I am going to look into that. I have to, I think.

spellbound - my dad was a business executive in the '80s...so, I'm kinda shocked, too.

kila - thanks so much! Maybe I should talk to him about marketing his prints on the 'net? I'm gonna have to call him...find out more details...I'll post later this month about the outcome.

real live lesbian - I think I'm too much of a "realist" in my art - I actually am an artist, but haven't done any in years...I think I'm gonna figure out how to market Dad's stuff.

desert songbird - I think I'm very close to making up my mind to whore out my Dad now...you guys are so encouraging!
