Works on paper, Yupo and canvas by Stan Kurth
this work is very nice... impalpable, ether..
Congratulations Stan! It is a great piece, I thought it looked familiar. You have put a lot of nice work on your blog since then. I like the mysteriousness of this one with the elements peeking through the misty veil.
Congratulations, Stan!! I remember this painting and it's worthy of an award, to be sure. The mysterious shrouding of this figure is intriguing and masterfully rendered.
Hi Laura - Thanks for the comment. Impalpable and ethereal are perfect words for this painting.Hi Tonya - Thank you. Enigma and ambiguity are common in my work, however, and I hope this doesn't take away too much mystery, you can read more of what this painting is about on the comments on the very first post on my blog.Hi Kathy - Thank you. I'm really most thrilled about Michael Schlicting giving me the award. I got to see his demo in the evening after he juried the exhibition and also talked to him for a bit after the demo. His philosophy is right on.
Congrats on your well-deserved award, Stan. It's always such a thrill to be honored by our peers.-Don
Congratulations Stan!! This is a very intriguing painting. Wish I could see it in person. The subtlety is best appreciated that way.
Congratulations Stan! Most deserved. I like how your title enhances the mystery and meaning of the painting.
Hi Don - Thanks I agree it is nice to be recognized by peers, especially the ones that you admire a lot.Hi Myrna - Yes there is a lot more to see in person; subtle nuances that can't be seen on a web size image.Hi Peggy - I love enigma in paintings. It creates a dialog between the viewer and the artist (sometimes).
Easy to see why this would win an award. The color is beautiful and the movement is sensual. Congratulations on the recognition of your work.
Hi TechnoBabe - Thanks, the inspiration, or at least the reason for the title, actually came along after I was into it a bit. For some reason the song Tales of Brave Ulysses by Cream resonated in my mind and this was the result. I'm elated that you saw the movement as sensual. And also thanks for Directing Jim to my blog!
Congratulations! This is gorgeous- subtle and delicate- I keep coming back to study it. There's so much in this. Again, the composition is wonderful.
Thank you Sharmon
You have quite a breadth of image making, from firmly drawn dump scenes to this ethereal study in veiled colors. That is impressive.Glad the link to the WWI print show was interesting for you!
This is an absolutely wonderful piece. I can understand why it won an award. Congratulations!
Thanks Kaylyn, I used to get concerned about that but now I just let it flow.Thank you Eva!
It's a beautiful painting Stan! Congratulations on your award- well deserved.
Thanks Pam - What happened to your blog?
Hi Stan- One of my Yahoo accounts was compromised- and in a fit of paranoia- I deleted everything. So two weeks later- when I came to my senses- I had lost my blog URL for 90 days. I could use another- and probably will- or I'll take an extended break to reflect on the state of my sanity. In the meantime, I get to enjoy everyone else while I decide what I want to do. I'll be sure to let you know when I'm back at it. Doubtful I'll do the full delete thing again- it's taken me days to recoup all of my connections. It was a great awakening however for me on just what "WWW" stands for. As my hubby has said to me several times since then- "You do KNOW that it stands for world wide web???" I've been taking the time away to focus on drawing lessons.Thanks for asking- btw.
Stan Kurth !This painting is wonderful !!!Congratulations , and have a creative time !!Best from Liv
