art smart

So remember when I did this post on Natasha Law paintings?  I have shared with you all many times my penchant for emulating art that I love. Well I did six pieces inspired by  Natasha's paintings but much smaller, on paper. HERE is the post with the results...


I just did them because they were such easy, uncomplicated shapes. But hers are much more impactful because they are huge, glossy paint on aluminum. So I gave the paper ones to my pal Betsy and I think it is now time to do a huge one for over my new pale linen sofa. I think this one is the front runner:


I could do it on a large 36" square canvas... or frame a huge photo or just do an abstract. What do you think? Advice, please....
Happy weekend! Off to dress like a mental patient for a Halloween Party....not such a stretch for me ;)

I think I would go with a photo, or maybe photo mounted/printed on plexiglass? Natasha Law is so established by now, her paintings are very recognizable, and a large-scale reproduction could look a bit off, in my opinion (I also considered commissioning one). An original abstract or a photo gets my vote. Maybe a color photo, to make it look fresh?

You are right, Olya, I will probably do an abstract. I have three huge framed pieces in the bedroom and lots of framed photos in my house. I need another medium - need a painting...
