#7- ‘Oh My!!!’-Oil on Canvas, 8” x 10” Craig L Haupt

This painting is from a September, 2012 ‘Doodle’ that I had looked at numerous times over the years, yet could not find a way to bring it to a finished solution. This current project of small paintings gave me the opportunity to find that ‘Doodle’ a home.

The Eleven Series

“Reaching”-Oil on Canvas, 8” x 10” Craig L Haupt

On day Two of my “break” from painting (March 29th), I happened to see a relativity simple Doodle in my Sketch book. I looked over and saw a small 8” x 10” canvas. Suddenly the ‘break’ was over and I started on this several-week whirlwind of eleven 8” x 10” paintings. They are simple in design, quick in execution, some with a looser painting style than others, and most, are void of any narrative other than what an applied title might miserly suggest. They became an enjoyable exercise that set the tone for a few paintings in the second part of the  upcoming 12 + 12 project.

This is the first of the eleven, Titled “Reaching”, and these will be posted each Monday in the order that they were painted.

12 + 12, 12 x 12’s – “The Patio” Finished Painting

Project: 12 + 12, 12 x 12’s  #12 by Craig L Haupt

Title-“The Patio”  Fourth sequenced post.

 

Posted is “The Patio” Finished painting.

Aside from finalizing various shapes and backgrounds with additional coats of paint, glazing, and shading to create form, the ‘Butterflies’ have a small history.

Back in 1995 I did a small 5” x 7” watercolor drawing using these multicolored butterflies in a design. Over the past 20 years I have tried, on a few occasions, to convert these ‘Butterflies’ into a painting using the same layout and design. I never did succeed.

While laying out the worksheet for this painting there were quiet whispers from some faraway place in my head that suggested this was a painting that these Butterflies could find a home. While not the same layout I had first worked with all those years ago, I’m satisfied with their place in this painting.

 

This marks the completion of 12 of the intended 24 paintings, a halfway point. I will be taking a break from the posting process. An upcoming out-of-town weekend reunion, Taxes, paperwork, Doctor and vehicle checkups, etc., all seeking attention and converging at the same time. Thanks for all your wonderful support for this portion of the 12 + 12 project. See you in a bit.

12 + 12, 12 x 12’s – “Duplex” Finished Painting

44-duplex

Project: 12 + 12, 12 x 12’s #11 by Craig L Haupt

Title-“Duplex”  Fourth sequenced Post.

 

Posted is the 12” x 12” “Duplex” Finished painting.
When putting forth a finished painting for all to see, I am at a disadvantage from the viewers perspective. Since my time spent with each painting is either the painting aspect in and of itself or numerous hours of musing various facets of shapes and colors, I can’t see my paintings with fresh eyes.

This leads me to the ending paragraph written in last weeks post,  “The difficult part in this painting is how these ‘applied’ decisions create a sense of logic as various converging lines distort where forms (cities, skies, ground, etc.) are seen as behind a particular shape in one instance then moves to be projected in front of the same shape moments later”.

Not sure whether this bending of ‘logic’ will be seen by viewers as successful or not, but from my experimenting with ambiguous receding and overlapping angled planes that emanated from the ‘doodle’, I am, from my perch, satisfied with this attempt.

 

The project will be posted in the following sequence, 1st Monday-the sketch/doodle or related source from whence the painting has originated.

The second Monday-the 12”x12” pencil worksheet showing the intended painting.

The third Monday-a progress post of the painting.

The fourth Monday-the finished painting.

Then repeat.
