Month of Fear 2020

Art challenges are something I take rather seriously - I'm not just in to take part, I want to actually improve, so I always make my life pretty hard with it. My five MoF entries were supposed to be all traditional media but I ended up making the last one digitally for lack of time. The themes this year were Trick, Night, Supernatural, Costume, and Treat. I planned a little more carfeully than before, smaller scale, less ambitiously complex subjects, and focused on having fun with it.

My first entry, Bienensterben, is oils on an acrylic pouring and deals with community collapes disorder of bees, being fixed by magic.

My second, "Night" is night personified, acrylics, pens, and oils on a round canvas board with early dawn (a pain to get the gradient done), featuring brass foil snippets forming the night lights of Cairo seen from the sky, and spirograph bokeh.

The third, entitled Enfleurage Nocturnelle, is a simple portrait of a woman (acrylics on wood, with a pouring beneath again) with magical perfume, the trick being that the magical swirls and fragrant flowers are made with glow-in-the-dark plastic filament

The fourth, This Year for Sure, shows a harpy girl getting ready for Halloween by preparing the perfect human mask. It's another acrylics painting on wood with a pouring beneath.

The final fifth painting for Treat is called Artgerecht, the only digital one, and shows a woman crying precious tears to feed butterflies the salts they need.
