Pointe Shoes study

Pointe of art ©monica yother

This is a quiet piece…no color, just the texture and details of pointe shoes. I enjoyed being able to slow down and really study this pose..a study using my eyes and hands. It is 16×20 acrylic on canvas. It’s in the studio.

A White and Gray Horse Painting

This was painted in acrylics…it was all about the textures and shapes. I wanted to create something more quiet than I normally do, so I limited the palette to whites, warm grays with just a little blue for a cool accent. (literally cool as in temperature). I sold this to a young guy who came…

I enjoyed the texture and contrasting smoothness on this. I had it in the front window of the studio for about a week, and it sold. I will do more in this style though. It was a very relaxing experience painting it!

This was a joy to paint. I was looking through some images of dancers-I don’t remember exactly what I was looking for, but when I came across one of a female dancer arched back, I stopped. I was captivated by just this one section…I loved the lines created by her back and the fabric in…

Autumn Equine

Autumn by Monica Yother

This makes me think of Autumn with it’s lingering warm air some days and cooler breezes in the evenings. I used a burlap strip to help create the textured ground. I have this in the studio now.

Day and Night

Day and Night

I called these Day and Night after I painted them. They are small and chunky, which sometimes I just love. No big story here, but they gave me great satisfaction when I was finished. I have them hanging in the studio, though they looked pretty cool when I had them sitting on my desk.
