Bird Brain, Visual Pun, by Jenny Armitage

Bird Brain (India Ink 14 x 16) $1000 framed; $900 unframed

I have a very visual mind.  When someone says “bird brain,” I’m apt to see something like this.  But I particularly liked this visual pun, because it hints at the intelligence of  birds, which is often as great or greater than mammals with similar lifestyles.  Ironically, owls are not particularly bright birds, but crows, hawks, and ravens are.

Framed in black wood with gray and black mat.

Limited Editions Prints:  8 x 8 $40; 12 x 12 $80.

A Few Alcohol Ink Mini Paintings

no comments

These are my very first alcohol ink paintings. The process is fast and exciting if not exactly controllable. Each of these paintings was completed in under thirty minutes working on Yupo with an eyedropper, cotton ball, cotton swab, gravity, and a mister. The good news it creates beautiful glowing results almost by magic. The bad news is that over half the painting made this way are fit only for the trash. These are the winners:

Setinel Fortress, Original Painting of Pueblos Blancos by Jenny Armitage

Setenil Fortress (watercolor 15 x 24) unframed $850

Setenil de los Bodegas of Cadiz Province, Spain is one of the more interesting pueblos blancos of Andulacia.  Unlike most pueblos blancos it occupies either ridge of a valley rather than a hilltop.  Many of the houses are semi-troglodyte, occupying shallow caves in the valley walls.  One street includes a natural tunnel.

The view in this painting is from our apartment porch in Setenil looking across at the old castile.

Horsing Around With Accordian, Original Painting by Jenny Armitage

Horsing Around With Accordions (watercolor 17x20) SOLD

Buskers with wearing horse-heads and playing the accordion are standard Vienna fare. We heard these three coming to and going from The Leopold. They were loud, enthusiastic and good, playing both traditional folk and a few pop pieces. But mostly they are just visually fun.
