Cuchilla Alta Uruguay Monica Fallini paintings update week # 39

Work in progress
This week I completed this seascape I started some weeks ago. This piece is part of the "Seascapes Project 2009" and it is based on a photograph (one of a series of many pictures specially taken for this project by Juan Fallini) of Cuchilla Alta, Uruguay.
The coast of this village is amazing. Beautiful natural rocks molded by the erosion of time being shaped by strong winds in Winter and powerful surf on stormy days.
On the horizon we can see the hills of the city of Piriapolis.
This is an oil painting on stretched canvas, 22" x 22", ready to hang.
Esta semana he completado este paisaje marino que comencé hace ya algunas semanas.
Esta obra es parte de la serie "Proyectos paisajes marinos 2009" y está basada en una fotografía (una de la serie de varias fotos especialmente tomadas para este proyecto por el Sr. Juan Fallini) de Cuchilla Alta en Uruguay.
La costa de este balneario es maravillosa. Las rocas naturales moldeadas por la erosión del tiempo y vientos fuertes en el Invierno y poderosas olas en los días de tormenta, son hermosas.
En el horizonte podemos apreciar los cerros de la ciudad de Piriápolis.
Es un óleo sobre tela de 56 cm x 56 cm, y está listo para desplegar.

Monica Fallini Paintings week # 37 update

A path with heart.
In different stages over this past six years I felt compelled to paint a path, a road. Sometimes I painted a path in the woods, other times it was a city street between buildings.
Paths are very symbolic, I think that every time I draw a path it has to do with something going on inside and I try to express something important to the viewer. I am not sure what it is, but for years I've been trying to follow paths with heart.
I think one of the keys of happiness is to devote a lot of time in one's life to follow a path with heart. The path can be cooking, painting, playing music, singing, cleaning, building, answering phones calls, helping others, helping animals, teaching, raising kids, repairing things, etc, etc, etc, as long as the person performing the action (karma in Sanskrit) finds the "heart" in that activity, finding his/her purpose (dharma) and the purpose of the activity itself one becomes one with the path and this leads to wholeness (plenitud) and contentment.

This painting will go to the "Seascapes 2009 project" series and it is the first on a medium size canvas (22" x 22"); there are already some others belonging to this series but on smaller size canvas.
After applying the underpainting I worked on the sky and then the water. Next I will work on the surf and a little more on the water.

Paintings of red poppies on yellow background.

I define my style as Modern Art, abstract expressionism. Many of the pieces are painted with palette knife and thick oil paint knife or brush strokes, impasto. Many are "alla prima", meaning that once the colors are applied there are no further modification or corrections.
I sell only original paintings and drawings. Every piece is unique, there is only one original in the whole world. Hand painted on hand stretched canvas on han made and assembled, wooden stretchers bars or prepared masonite board.
I hope you enjoy these two oil paintings!. Thanks, Monica.

Welcome to "Paintings by Monica Fallini"

I have been working on the "Daily paintings blog" for a year and a half and on the "Figurative art blog" for half a year now. This past week I decided that my regular size paintings deserve a space where I can show the progress of my work on a weekly basis and share the process of research and other stories behind the completed paintings.
A link will follow every image and by following it you will be able to learn more about each piece and purchase information.
I hope the visitors enjoy this blog and please submit your comments or questions! Thank you for your support of original art in general and my art in particular. Monica.
