Art in the Home

I am LOVING these gold watercolor and gold leaf paintings.  I hung one in my dining room, wow!  Totally refreshed and added sophistication to the room.  Maybe I will paint a large icelandic poppies in gold for moi!!!!  Paintings are available direct from me or check out what I have at The Write Invite at 4425 Lovers Lane.  Saturday is the last day to shop.  Go buy something so I don't have to pack it up!!!!! Lol!  I have small ones at the show, too.  Those can make a great gift, too!

Admiral Butterfly
Mixed media on canvas

You have to see this piece in person to appreciate the detail.  I had to lighten the photo and lost the detail in the background and the butterfly wings.  Using papers I made, acrylic and gold leaf, this butterfly came to life.  I am pleased with the texture and details of this painting.  I had been imagining this for some time.  Creating it was a freeing experience as I had freedom to move my body with large brush strokes, working both on an easel and the floor.  It turns out working on the floor is more natural to me.  Then playing with the papers I made and moving them around on the painting to determine what felt right.  Again, the background is much more detailed than how it looks in the photo.  You can see this at 4425 Lovers Lane - The Write Invite Pop up.

A friend sent this photo to me.  She happened to be at a meeting and someone was wearing my San Miguel Scarf.  My friend was so excited to see my scarf she made the fashionista pose for a photo.

Liana Yarckin Art is going Gold!!!!

15x15 Gold Butterfly by Liana Yarckin

15x15 Gold Bee by Liana Yarckin

15x15 Gold Dragonfly by Liana Yarckin

Happy Friday!  Hope you are having a fall!  September was a nice little break for me and now I am in full swing of preparing for art shows.  

Right now I have a list of things to paint that I am painting with a set of deliciously glittery metallic paints in 6 different shades of gold to silver.  An artist friend surprised me with them.  First, I used them delicately over non-metallic paint on butterfly wings.  Then, recently, a client said she would like a butterfly but her colors are just gold and white.  Knowing I would not get much depth or varying shades of value, I thought about how could I make a gold butterfly interesting.  I added gold leaf!  Gold leaf, the bane of my existence.  It is such a tedious process which requires an enormous amount of patience from me.  However, I am finding it almost meditative. The photos do not do it justice because of the reflective nature.  The paper is always reflecting cool blue even though it is warm white and if you take the photo straight on, the gold sometimes reflects the darks in front of it.  

Anyway, they must have translated somehow on my instagram.  After posting the butterfly, I immediately received a commission for a bee.  While painting the bee, I painted a dragonfly since I have been seeing so many dragonflies wherever I am outside. All framed in a 20x20" mat gold frame.
