Spring & Summer Art Prints - Art for my Living Room
After I've had enough of winter's dull grays, I start moving towards a more energetic color palette that reflects the coming season. The spring/summer colors make the last stretch of winter easier to bare. Recently, I've been craving colors I can't find in the New Mexican landscape - like the bright blues of tropical water or the vibrant fuchsias of peonies. So, I've focused my lens on the subjects & colors I'm missing.
I've been trying to create some artwork for my living room. This past week, I created one possible option - the vertical triptych shown above. I usually like to live with my art for awhile and reflect on it before posting. But recently, I've found the feedback I've received through Instagram (@jessicakenyonstudio) to be invaluable, so I'm posting more often. I quickly discover what people like and don't like!
two abstract Photography Series - Ink & Flowers
I am currently expanding upon my abstract ink and abstract flower series. Creating a single photograph that I like is easier than creating a cohesive group of photographs. I like to shoot whatever inspires me in the moment and only focus on what I can see though my camera lens. However, as I am framing more of my art for my own home and working with interior designers, I'm discovering the importance of creating diptychs, triptychs, and gallery walls that work together. I'm also finding my maximalist color palettes - are sometimes more difficult to style around. They work great in neutral / black and white interiors but if an interior already has a lot of bright colors, it can make it more difficult to find a print that works. Although I love taking on commissions, I want to have a body of work that people can easily pull existing prints from...no matter what style & color palettes they are using.
