Homage to Picasso

Homage to Picasso

Painted on Driftwood

23 x 40cm x 5cm

This piece in painted on driftwood found on my local beach. It is in homage to Picasso who is one of my inspirations.   

She is in the style of Picasso’s Dora Maar paintings. By some accounts, Dora Maar’s relationship with Pablo Picasso marked the end of her artistic career. When the young photographer took up with the older, celebrated artist in 1936, she was a rising star in Surrealist circles.

She is painted in acrylic paint and has a hook on the back to mount on the wall.

She is full of color and life.

It’s all in the Stars – Capricorn

capricornWe all look up to the heavens and imagine the stars and planets are sparkling jewels dancing across the night sky. Our potential is like those jewels with a dazzling array of facets. Astrologers symbolically demonstrate that our human potential is virtually unlimited.
I have commenced a series of art – “It’s all in the Stars”. The pieces are about the images of Astrology – an interpretation of Astrological Symbols with a Picassiano twist – all are bright, colorful and a little different!”
To start the year the first piece is:
CAPRICORN – The Goat…December 22 to January 20
Capricorn’s are the movers and pushers of the zodiac, the ‘cardinal’ Earth sign, who likes to be in control of situations and to make your mark on the world. The Earth element means you are a sensate type, driven by practical goals, material ambitions and physical concerns.
As the cardinal Earth sign you lead the push to build powerful structures, which will stand the test of time. You seek security and stability and have a natural respect for social institutions, like the family and government organizations. If you decide you want to change something you seek to work from the inside to create change. You are most happy when you have a meaningful role, have autonomy and can engineer slow progress. Your key phrase: “I build”.
