Pine Cone Abstraction 1


I'm finally painting again. Not sure if this will be a series of this new subject, but so far I have fun and have done 4 paintings so far. It was actually my father who suggested that I would give Pine cones a try. I had some doubt in the beginning, not sure if I could pull it of and do something interesting, but I gave it a go.
This one is rather big, but I intend to do some smaller ones too.

    1. Thank you Mystelio. I think it is a very specific and interesting shape, very sculpture. Have done a few now, and they all got a very natural earthy feel. Not sure if I can push it in a new direction or not, but I think I will try.

    1. Thanks Amanda, I am glad you like it. The smaller ones will come soon. The fun thing is that the size really define the direction that I take them to.

    1. Thank you Nan. I have done a few now. Most of them as a single pinecone painting, but I have done two paintings with more than one. I'm not sure why, but so far all of them has gone in the direction of earthy natural colors. If I will do more all depend if I can go more bolder and really experiment.

    1. Thank you Hilje. I can be wrong, but I don't think this will be a "real series", but I still looking and trying to figure out what I want.

  7. Bonjour Roger,

    Cette pomme de pin ou "babet" dans mon langage gaga / stéphanois ! (de la ville de Saint-Etienne)... est vraiment superbe.
    Il n'est pas simple du tout de dessiner et peindre cet organe reproducteur ! Il faut savoir y placer la lumière et chaque facette est comme un miroir... elle capte les couleurs.
    J'aime beaucoup le choix des belles nuances de bleus que vous avez utilisées pour le fond.
    Bravo ! j'en veux encore... Pour allumer le feu, il en faut une bonne "boge" (en gaga!) = sac !!...

    Gros bisous

    1. Thanks Martine. Glad you like it. I really have to fight the urges to do too much details, want to keep the simplicity and the hint of the structure.

  8. The pine cone is interesting. It too has a central point from which all the branches project, albeit, a vortex. A view from above might be a view to explore?

    1. Thanks Linda. A pine cone is fun and very specific. That's both it's advantages and it's flaws. I would like to go more bolder, stepping out from that earthy character. Have to see if I get inspired to do some more done.

  9. So glad to see you back Roger. I was wondering where you had gone. :) I do think that pinecones suit your style SO well! What a great idea your dad had. THis looks awesome. :)

    1. Thanks Crystal. I am still here. =) I'm not stuck, but I am looking for that thing that will get my creative juices going.
      Taking some time of to do other things can be a good thing, working on getting in shape among other things, I am not getting younger.
