ANGELA BENTLEY FIFE'S ARTWORLD: all things right-brained.

These are two diptychs I did for Terzian Gallery. I am liking the idea of linking some kind of meaning to my quick figures. These are small like 8 x 14". The first is titled "thoughts of home" and the second "disposition". I would like to play with this idea a bit more with diptychs and triptychs. We'll see if they are sellable..... I actually really like them.

I took a zillion pictures of shadow #2 for some ideas for a big painting I want to start.....I know which one I am leaning toward, but I would love your input. Mr. Fife and my shadows all voted and we all like different ones. I know I will paint the entire dress form, I am just contemplating which pose to work from. I have about 30 others, but the differences are slight, so here are the main decisions. Let me know what you think. I also realized that each pose has different meanings and emotional impacts. I don't think there is any right or wrong, I just haven't decided which way I want to go. I see a series coming.

New Paintings

'Baby Hunger', 'Waiting to Fly', and 'Inside Out'
This not-so-great economy has made selling a little slow, but not too bad. The gallery in Texas says good paintings are still selling. So with that hope, I am trying to produce good, good paintings. And Park City made a big sale this week. So... time to refill.
