Jinx shows at “I’ll Be Your Baby Tonight” art show at the Cactus Gallery this month!

I’ll be showing a few small paintings in this show. All heart related and very affordable.

This opening is TONIGHT!

We look forward to seeing you this Saturday, February 11, from 7-10pm for the Opening Reception for “I’ll Be Your Baby Tonight,” Cactus Gallery’s Love themed exhibit. In conjunction with NELAart.org‘s Second Saturday Gallery Night.
The show runs from February 11 to March 6, 2012. The heart is the CORE of one’s being and love seems to be universally depicted with the symbol of a heart. This group show features original work that depicts love and most pieces incorporate a heart – whether anatomically or symbolically. You will find acrylics and oils on canvas and wood, ceramics, paper mache, watercolors, pen and ink drawings, mosaic, felt dolls, assemblage, custom wood cuts, embroidery and many mixed media works.

If you have a question regarding availability of work, please contact Sandra @ semastroianni70@yahoo.com or 323.256.6117

Jinx starts a new (blue) fishnet painting. Oils on canvas, 4″x4″

Blue Fishnet painting

This is a very short progress video of my latest fishnet painting. Blue this time! I’ve pretty much got the underpainting done. I had to stop before the colors got too muddy. The paint needs to dry before I can do anything else. 4″x4″, oils on canvas

I haven’t decided yet if I’m going to be painting outside or not. I have started a much smaller clown painting and might work on that. You’ll have to come to The Hive Gallery and find out.

Purple Clown Update: Finished the parasol and worked on the wig/eyes

Purple Clown Update:

I have finished the parasol! I just needed to add some highlights to the handle. Then I turned my attention to the wig and eyes. The wig is almost done. The eyes need some work. This clown is currently cross-eyed. But don’t worry, I’ll fix the eyes next week.

Purple Clown Update: pink lace parasol and leg tattoos

Purple Clown Update:

I have been working on the pink parasol. I’m almost done. This week I’m hoping to finish it. The paint was getting a bit too wet to work with. I also worked on the leg tattoos. They are more solid now. The end is nearing.

Purple Clown tattoo & New Hive group show

Purple Clown Update:

I worked on the tattoos on the purple clown. They are currently very bright. I will be going over them to dull them down when I do the skin. Later that night I was at The Hive’s group show. Lots of fun things there 🙂

Clown update and the downtown Artwalk at The Hive

Purple Clown Update:

I haven’t really posted much on my purple clown recently because I’m in the fine detail stage of the painting. The differences aren’t that dramatic. My camera isn’t the best and sometimes doesn’t catch everything. But I am still working on the painting. I’m posting a couple photos of what I’ve worked on in the past couple weeks.

Worked on the hair and parasol. I am going to need a step stool for the top of this one. Painting on your tippy toes really isn’t the best way to go about it. At this point I’m still reshaping things, especially in the parasol. Just fine tuning everything.

Last week I worked on the back shoe. It’s done except for the shoelace.
