Sultry Norma Jean in the Kitchen

"I'm for the individual as opposed to the corporation. The way it is the individual is the underdog, and with all the things a corporation has going for them the individual comes out banged on her head. The artist is nothing.  It's really tragic."   ♥ Marilyn Monroe ♥

P.E.N. Studio has been staged! Happy Dance.....'Sultry Norma Jean' is for sale. Thanks for Visiting!

Impressionist FABstracts...say what?

Impressionism was given its name from one of Monet's pictures, Impression: Sunrise. 

 Impressionism: The impressionist style of painting is characterized chiefly by concentration on the general impression produced by a scene or object and the use of unmixed primary colors and small strokes to simulate actual reflected light.  

Monet, Claude (b. Nov. 14, 1840, Paris, Fr.--d. Dec. 5, 1926, Giverny)
French painter, initiator, leader, and unswerving advocate of the
Impressionist style. He is regarded as the archetypal Impressionist in that his devotion to the ideals of the movement was unwavering throughout his long career, and it is fitting that one of his pictures--Impression: Sunrise (Musée Marmottan, Paris; 1872)--gave the group his name.
Impression, Sunrise 
1873 (210 Kb); Oil on canvas, 48 x 63 cm (19 x 24 3/8"); Musee Marmottan, Paris


Stuck inside of Knoxville commented about P.EN. Studio's style... "This month's  featured artist is Pamela Neal. Her art is billed as "abstract impressionism" and maybe that's as close a description as any. There is clearly an abstract quality." 

The intention of all art is to reach out and to touch the sense's in some make an impression.  Ergo, Impressionistic FABstrats.  My goal is to make an emotional connection with the viewer and to leave an impression.  FABstract?  To me all of my abstracts are FABulous!  Time to hop on over to the Urban Dictionary and add FABstract and blART...both P.E.N. terms in the blogosphere .  SoKno Gal blARTS about her FABstracts! 

SoKno?  SoHo is in New York.  SoKno is in = South Knoxville.  The southern portion of our Scruffy little city.  Another term made popular with local bloggers.

Oh Hail! - Karma Chaos Love Birds

Talk about a sign!....Here was my sign.  I am doing what I am supposed to be doing even in a mass of chaos!  When I painted this it represented one it says...Yep, even in the tough times you will always have your passion....a solitary on one with the art.  Now it represents a love for the ARTS!   

Karma Chaos Love Birds
16X20 Oil
They are sitting calmly on a wire oblivious to the CHAOS surrounding them. 

P.E.N. Studio suffered from last weeks Tornado's that ripped through SoKno, and the Southeastern United States.  As I was picking up the pieces and cleaning up the mess, amongst the debris was this painting that I had laid on a table to dry before the storms.  The broken window pane had shattered but there was not one speck of glass on this painting.  And it was right below the window.  Glass everywhere...not on this one.  The name had to be Karma Love Birds. 

Art from the ♥ of Tennessee!
