Two New Paintings – Worldheart and Emme – the Pale Queen

February 20, 2017 / by grimwain

I’ve been staying up extra late this year.

…painting, writing a sequel to this, and painting some more.

The writing pays the bills, but it’s the painting that makes me oh so happy.

Here’s two of my latest:


I call this one Worldheart. I had no specific plan when I painted it…other than to add a whole bunch of writhing roots and vines. I really like the dark and powerful greens. This one was so fun to create I’m thinking of buying a huge canvas to paint a deep crimson version.

Worldheart is 16″ x 20″.  It’s available on Society6.


And next, Emme – the Pale Queen:


As practice for my next big series of painting pretty girls, I painted Emme. My latest style is minimalist color, focusing on texture, shading, and the challenge of painting human expressions.

Emme came out nicely, I think.

She’s 16″ x 20″.

If you liked these two pieces, you might also like these.
