Newest paintings

11 X 14 acrylic and gouache on cradled panel by Kerry Steele "Satsuki Rain"
I have completed a few paintings recently. The abstract above sat unfinished for at least a month and I got back to it after the craziness of juried show submissions was over.
This one is in a regional show...
16 x 20 mixed media by Kerry Steele "Figure 2"

This is in a nationally juried show...
20 x 16 acrylic on canvas by Kerry Steele
But alas, it is a difficult business and  up to the taste of the juror. These two were not accepted.

16 x 20 mixed media on canvas by Kerry Steele titled "undone"
This last one makes me laugh because no one I know likes it. My husband calls it "Freaky Zombie Girl" !! Hahaha.
I'll be painting some rather large scale things in the near future. I am excited to stretch some raw silk on a 32 x 36 frame once the fabric arrives.

I really love your newest one. I find this so brave of every artist. To just put your work out there and have everyone judge you....publicly.

Great work. Have to agree with your husband on "freaky zombie girl" - too funny he named her that!

Kris said...

Yep, the last image, "Freaky Zombie Girl" is a perfect name for her. My favorite is the second image..."Figure 2".
