Long Time No See



"Swept Away"
10" x  8", Oil on Board
Website:  JudyMackey.com

I have to think that I have some insecurities about my painting.  I easily say "yes" to a commission and then have anxiety about producing it.  I procrastinate and I find so much more to do than to actually sit and paint.  I get that analysis, paralysis.  I practice on other painting pieces, and then one day, after I've put it off long enough, I put paint on the canvas and it flows.

The painting above was not a commission.  It was one of those paintings that I painted instead of working on a commission.  I'd seen a friend's photo on a Facebook post and liked the "hug".  But then when I painted it the first time, it didn't work and I ended up wiping it all off.  The second time, in alla prima style, with the base paint still wet on the board, the above painting emerged.  The title was selected from the comments I received when I posted this painting on my Facebook Page.  Swept away because the first draft was "wiped away"




This painting has sold - if you are interested in a similar one, you can commission me. Please email me at judy@judymackey.com.  If you like my work, leave me a comment, share this blog with your friends and LIKE ME ON FACEBOOK - Thank you!!.

His Shirt Series

"His Shirt 10"
8" x  8", Oil on Cradled Board
I haven't been posting regularly on my blog so I wonder just how many are following my post.  Life got in the way.  I moved, and then I moved again and not liking my decision I moved back to house #2.  I'm not sure I'm done yet.
I painted this painting last year, continuing on with my "His Shirt" series.  I started the series with White Shirt and Blue Shirt on a smaller board but moved on to the 8x8 size.  Available now on Artfinder.

A Shoulder to Lean on






"Shoulder"
14" 11x  1.5", Oil on Stretched Canvas

It doesn't matter what the couple is looking at, I wanted to capture the moment I would be putting my head on someone's shoulder  This painting is a little abstract and simple.  I put a touch of yellow in the center/off center - could that be the rising sun, the setting sun or could that just be an allegory for something.

I posted this painting on Facebook and it was fun to read what some thought the two were looking at. 

This painting, for me, came about when I had exchanged some messages with a friend about some of the speed bumps we'd been tripping over.  And we told each other that we had a shoulder for each other to use whenever.

Fortunately for me, this painting sold almost immediately after I posted it on one of my online galleries.

Angel Sleeping Painting




"While You Were Asleep"
12" x  12" x 1.5", Oil on Stretched Canvas


I've done several angels in this pose.  It started with a commission/request by a collector who wanted to gift it to a caretaker for her mother...that angels need rest too when working in assisted living.
