Hello everyone, I hope you all have been fine and be the best you can, let us never fail to think that Life is good and the Universe is a safe place. I know I’ve been kind of MIA but it only proves that I am doing serious improvements in real life, not only about my art but also for my personal growth (more details to come). Thus I was really busy offline, being pretty productive here and there.
Tomorrow on Sunday, 24th March 2013, I will be joining Kunstmarkt Bremen 2013 (Bremen Art Market), can you even imagine how excited I am to have my very first art exhibition? Together with the other 12 artists I will be presenting my total of 24 paintings. I really do not want to spoil the fun so as soon as the event is done I’ll be sure to upload tons of pictures and share stories here. For the time being, here’s a picture of one painting as it was still work in progress.
(Yes messiness … you almost can recognize all my tools and paints. And that’s how I mostly do my paintings, on the floor without easel)
Stay tuned and be safe
Storm of Life, 2012
by Bertha Makes
Panart paint on canvas
80 cm X 60 cm
I painted this when I was pretty sick. The strokes appear to be very bothered and nervous, just like how I felt back then.
Originally there were more blue and dark grey shades on the painting but as I slowly developed the work and was also getting better physically, I decided to put some more white layers on many spots until I believe now it’s done.
van Gogh forever, 2012
by Bertha Makes
PanArt paint on canvas
40 cm X 40 cm
This is where I will share my artworks with the world. I mostly paint with PanArt paint (a special mixture and painting technic of acrylics as founded by Matthias Masu Baumgartner) on canvas. On paper I use watercolor, black tea and India Ink as inspired by the great Carne Griffiths. Sometimes I also love to draw only with India Ink in sepia and sanguine.
