BiPolar Bear

Bi Polar Bear, Surreal Pen and Ink, by Jenny Armitage

BiPolar Bear (India Ink on cold-press paper 12 x 14 inches).

 

Bi-polar disorder is a bear to suffer through.  Being a bipolar bear may not be much better.  But this one seems to be barring up well.

I have changed him up a little digitally:

Bird Brain

Bird Brain, Visual Pun, by Jenny Armitage

Bird Brain (India Ink 14 x 16) available

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.

Urban Chimera (India Ink 19 x 16) available

I think of this as a chimera, but given all of the city equipment, I guess he’s a little bit of a cyborg too.

My daughter says my sheep is smug–smug because he can count.  Let him be smug, as long as he, not me, does the midnight counting.

The Raven Tree, Drawing by Jenny Armitage

The Raven Tree (2 x 21 archival pen) available

When I look at pines I often see things in the branches the way other people see things in the clouds.  From there to a tree of ravens wasn’t much of a stretch.

Fine art prints are available. I’ve also digital manipulated the tree so as to place it on a couple different backgrounds for printing. Those images can be seen and purchased here.

Birth of Venus Two, (18 x 24 watercolor) available

Botticelli’s Birth of Venus is stunning, but it never captured the delivery part of birth for me.  Botticelli’s Venus is serene.  She is arriving at the shore, the messy birth process long behind her.  My Venuses  are actually in the process of emerging from the sea foam.

Perhaps Persephone?

Persephone in Autumn, An Original Painting by Jenny Armitage

Perhaps Persephone (watercolor 16 x 22) SOLD

Initially, this painting was inspired by a bird’s nest left over from last Spring.  Looking at the nest, the woman with bird’s nest hair and the whitewater dress rising from the ground just came to me.  She became Persephone as painted her.  Now she is drowsily sinking back into the earth before her return to Hades and the Underworld. She’ll be back in the Spring.

Paint Tube Hills—Playing with Perspective Again

no comments
Paint Tube Hills, Original Painting by Jenny Armitage

Paint Tube Hill (16 x 22 watercolor) Available

Realistic paintings are representations of three dimensional space on a two dimensional surface. This painting plays with that concept by depicting three dimensional objects like paint tubes and brushes resting on a two dimensional painting. But of course the tubes and brushes are also two dimensional representations of three dimensional space.
