Moment’s Notice

Posted in Paintings with tags , , , , , , on October 26, 2014 by Amy Floyd Studio

For some reason I love a fresh white canvas. The possibilities are endless and I love attacking it. However, the big however, when I get 95% done with a painting I tend to stall, I second guess things, and then I’m afraid to make a mark . The the end result is a painting that is dragging on with no completion in sight! I managed to force myself to finish this one. I do love the end result and I’m happy I didn’t give up. Hope you enjoy it too.

Oh Betty

I did a series of paintings of these very feminine dresses. They were mostly inspired by McCall’s patterns via Google. However, I noticed that the best silhouettes were actually poses done from the actresses of Madmen. You will have to guess which painting has “Betty” in it. You can see more of these on Facebook/AmyFloyd’sArtwork.

I love to illustrate and often wonder if I should be a painter. Hmm. So I decided to mix the two and came up with the following results. Enjoy~
