Tina Steele Lindsey - Nocturne




Guido the plumber and Michelangelo obtained their marble from the same quarry, but what each saw in the marble made the difference between a nobleman's sink and a brilliant sculpture. - Bob Kall
I totally get that, but everyone has to earn a living.
It's all good either way.
You go Michelangelo, and you go Guido!

This is lovely! Watch out, Claude Monet.

Tina said...

Kate, that is sweet, actually this painting was painted upside down, and when I flipped it to what you see here, it does look Monet-esque.

You're such a mystical, magical, watercolor-y painter, Tina!
Happy Easter to you :)

That is SO beautiful!

I appreciate this as for what it is, beautiful. Not so much Monet on my book, he would have covered the canvas. I like the controlled drip.

Funny you said that you turned the painting upside down. I remember learning that successful compositions worked at all angles. Clearly, your does!
and...I love the quote!

Becky,
Hi! mystical, magical, watercolor-y - perhaps the best compliment ever. And same back to you about Easter, hope yours will be wonderful.

Tina said...

Amy,
You are SO sweet. Thanks for visiting here as you do.

Tina said...

Anonymous Thomas -
Thanks, so much. Drips are fun, you should email and tell me if you are a painter - I'd like to know.

Tina said...

Claire,
True that. I always have my husband come to the computer when I upload new painting images, and I rotate them. I ask him which orientation he prefers and if he can tell how it was painted. Interesting that he usually gets it right.

I'm gald you re-posted. Seeing the work against the wall gives me a good sense of its size. I love the floating haziness of the work and the small patches of pink are magical.

Tina Steele Lindsey said...

Hi, Margaret, thank you so much. I may start posting paintings regularly next to things to give an idea of scale. I hope you've been well, thank you for the floating haziness!
