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.

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…

Symphony in Blue

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!

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

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.
