You Rang?

'You Rang?' acrylic paint self-portrait by San Francisco Bay Area artist Julia Kay. (Click to view same image larger.) Lurching into the new week... the process for this piece was a game I sometimes play.. to use up all the leftover paint on my palette and not take out anything new.

Kay's Monets

'Kay's Monets' acrylic paint and pen self-portrait by San Francisco Bay Area artist Julia Kay. (Click to view same image larger.) There are some things I really can't figure out about how he made these... I may be obsessed with this painting for awhile.

That Monet was a Brilliant Dude

'That Monet was a Brilliant Dude'acrylic paint self-portrait by San Francisco Bay Area artist Julia Kay. (Click to view same image larger.) Brilliant use of color anyway!

In the process of moving things around to accommodate ongoing construction on the house and my studio, I unearthed some of my mother's art books... soon all the art books will have a proper home built-in between studio and bedroom - I can't wait. In any event, Monet seemed to fit right in with my recent foliage explorations.

A Tangle of Trees

'A Tangle of Trees' acrylic paint self-portrait by San Francisco Bay Area artist Julia Kay. (Click to view same image larger.) And who's in those trees with me...? Actually, if you think I seem more interested in the woods than the self-portrait these days, you're right!

Early Morning at Sausal Creek

'Early Morning at Sausal Creek' acrylic paint self-portrait by San Francisco Bay Area artist Julia Kay. (Click to view same image larger.) Ha! I thought this seemed familiar while I was doing it - it seems I picked the same photo to work from as on June 26th, even though I have a pretty large collection of images of me in these woods to choose from!

The Yellow Turban

'The Yellow Turban' acrylic paint self-portrait by San Francisco Bay Area artist Julia Kay. (Click to view same image larger.) After almost two weeks of making images digitally, it's fun to be behind a brush again - and see how working in one media influences the way I work in anther. In this case the easy access on the iPod Touch to so much color that doesn't bleed and doesn't get muddy, is inspiring me to work in a different way with actual paint. In the year and a half of this project, I've made color images in many ways - watercolors, magic markers, cut paper, crayons, digitally, and with beet juice, to name a few. But actually the last few days are the first time I've used acrylics since the portrait project began, which is interesting since they were my primary media prior to this. In any event, I'm enjoying re-engaging with an old friend.

Thick Paint

Real Paint!

How strange... you have to mix colors and wait for paint to dry before changing it...
