I am taking part in Leslie Saeta’s “ Thirty Paintings in Thirty Days Challenge”.

I have chosen the NEW YORK SCHOOL as my theme. I am working on paintings based on a quote of one of its member artists, not their technique.  CLICK HERE to learn more about it.

Painting #10, I call it "One Scoop of French Vanilla Ice Cream":





“Painting that does not radiate feeling is not worth looking at. The deepest-and rarest-of grown-up pleasures is true feeling."

Painting 6, I call it "Within Isolated Cells":





“Women can also be creative in total isolation. I know excellent women artists who do original work without any response to speak of. Maybe they are used to lack of feedback. Maybe they are tougher.                                  
                                              ~ Elaine de Kooning, Member of the New York School



My opinion is - MAYBE we ARE!


Elaine de Kooning (1918-1989), born in Flatbush,  was an Abstract Expressionist and Figurative Expressionist painter in the post-World War II era. She wrote extensively on the art of the period [7] and was an editorial associate for Art News magazine. 1

PAINTING #6: Thirty Paintings in Thirty Days Challenge – Barnett Newman

Painting 6, I call it "Shifting":






When painters feel the need to make a shift toward self-discovery, they turn to black and white for a time. “

                                  ~ Barnett Newman, Member of the New York School



I don’t need an excuse to paint in black and white. Those two are my staples, like milk and bread. Simple but complex, it’s all in the eye of the beholder!
  

                            
Barnett Newman (1905-1970) was an American artist, born in New York City. He is seen as one of the major figures in abstract expressionism and one of the foremost of the color field painters. His paintings are existential in tone and content, explicitly composed with the intention of communicating a sense of locality, presence, and contingency. 1
