Lotus Bubbles

June 27th, 2016

This painting, “Lotus Bubbles,” goes along with my last painting, now sold, “Hope Bubbles Up.” That was the first Lotus painting I’ve done where I incorporated bubbles into the design. It was a purely impulsive thing I did just for fun, but now I’ve been exploring that whimsical theme more!

This painting shows a pair of blooming lotuses standing up straight with bubbles rising all around them. Huge, glossy green leaves fill the bottom of the painting.

Like my last painting, this one is also painted mostly with a palette knife and lots of cold wax medium, for thick texture.

Details like the outlines around the flowers and stems, and the bubbles, were then painted over this heavily textured surface with oil glazes.

The result is a visually rich experience when you look at the painting in person–a flat image from across the room, but with hills and valleys, ridges and lumps when you explore it up close. Surprising bits of color glow through other layers of color.

I’m in love with the vibrancy of this palette–so warm and sunny!

This is currently the only painting I have from my Lotus series–you can see a selection of my favorites here. I can proudly say that every single one of the originals I’ve ever made for this series has been sold to a happy collector!

This series has not been my primary focus over the past several years, as I’ve been expanding my Looking Up and Tree of Life series.

However, it is something I continue to come back to again and again, and I have no intention of abandoning this theme anytime soon. I’ve often thought of my Lotus paintings as a form of creative palate cleanser for me in between projects. “Oh, I’m tired–I need to do a Lotus painting!” There is something so sweet and joyful about creating these ones. I always have so much fun with them. I think that spirit of fun comes through in the paintings.

Next up on my easel is the largest Lotus painting I’ve done yet–36″ x 48″! It is taking me a while to finish because of the large size. Stay tuned for that one.

After my big Spring Sale, I’ve been packing and shipping the sold paintings every week, managing all the invoices, and getting the bonus gifts of greeting cards printed and shipped out to each buyer.

So now that I’m coming to the end of such a great sale, and with a few more unexpected sales since, I’ve finally gone through the process of taking inventory of what I have left.

This seemed like a good time to update my pricing structure to be more streamlined–something I’ve been wanting to do for a long time. I now have only 7 prices total, ranging from $290 to $2,490 (with exceptions for custom or very large-scale pieces.) I have 1-3 of my commonly used canvas sizes assigned to each price point.

As I assigned each available piece to one of my new price points, it worked out in such a way that some of my paintings moved slightly up in price and some moved slightly down. So, if you’ve had your eye on a particular piece, make sure to check if the price has changed! You can see my currently available art here. You’ll notice that all I have now are several of the large-scale redwood forest paintings, and about 20 of my recently completed small Tree of Life paintings on 12″ x 16″ canvases.

My plans for the coming months, in addition to working on new Lotus paintings, include creating more paintings for my long-lost love, my Eclipse series! I have a big solo show coming up in 2017 with an eclipse theme, and as of yet no artwork for it. More news about that to come!

Oh, and in the meantime, I probably should not neglect my Looking Up series, as that is the theme I submitted to Portland Open Studios, which I am IN, in October, and I’ll have to have some new pieces to show people then. (I’m thinking…maybe some new ones with autumn leaves…) :) By the way, if you’re in the Portland area, it is worth looking into getting tickets to this awesome event that will be happening in artist’s studios all over the city. I will be in the good company of about 100 absurdly talented and diversely skilled local artists.

*Gulp* The pressure is on…As usual–ha!

Hope Bubbles Up

May 27th, 2016

Here is “Hope Bubbles Up”–the newest addition to my Lotus series.
This painting differs from the rest of my work in this series because it has bubbles!

The bubbles were an impulsive addition. When I looked at the rest of the painting–the loose, splashy, fun feel of it, I thought, “This needs bubbles!”

The bubbles are rising up through the colors, both transparent and reflective.

The bubbles work alongside the symbolism of the Lotus flower–ethereal, rising up. They also suffuse the whole image with a feeling of fun and joyfulness.

Most of the painting was done with a palette knife. I created a sculptural texture with cold wax medium. Because it’s painted on wood, I was able to lay on the paint very thickly.

It’s a big painting and was so much fun to make. I’m already working on something similar that’s even larger!

Moon Watcher

May 19th, 2016

Here is “Moon Watcher.”

The giant full moon hangs near the horizon over deep green hills. And standing on top of one of the tree’s roots, which rises up out of the ground like a lookout tower, is this little person. She surveys the landscape spread out below, the streaks of atmosphere in the starry sky, and the quiet, beautiful moon.

I imagine her as cultivating her own independence. She’s an intrepid adventurer!

To me, it looks like she is drawing strength from the sturdy tree. The whorls and contours of the massive trunk are gray, gold and lavender in the milky moonlight.

Runaway

May 16th, 2016

This whimsical painting is called “Runaway.”

Runaway. 12" x 36", Oil on Canvas, © 2016 Cedar Lee

I started with this rolling green landscape, and a full golden moon hanging in the sky above the hills. The sky is rich with hazy blue clouds and a spattering of twinkling stars.

To me, it looks like the tree, with its curved branches reaching, is calling out, beckoning towards the moon on its path through the sky.

After I painted that part, I sat back and looked at the painting, asking myself what else it needed. Suddenly, I envisioned this little person, sprinting down the hill towards the tree, his path lit by the big moon overhead. It had to be. I added him, and it transformed the image into something fun and exhilarating!

I like that he’s running toward the tree–if not his final destination, it will be a stop on his journey.

The painting wraps around all the edges.

We Made It

May 13th, 2016

This painting is called “We Made It.” Panorama-format, it’s 12″ x 36″.

A couple stands under a regal silver tree, an unbelievably enormous full moon rising before them into a deep blue star-filled sky.

We Made It. 12" x 36", Oil on Canvas, © 2016 Cedar Lee

The story I imagine is that the couple has been through many challenges over the years, but they are still together and have reached a milestone in their lives together–hence the title, “We Made It.”

They can hardly believe how far they’ve come and that they are still intact after the overwhelming whirlwind of stress and big changes that life has thrown at them. The feeling is a mix of deep gratitude, accomplishment, celebration, relief and joy.

Their long shadows spread out into the foreground, as they are silhouetted by moonlight.

This shared moment is made particularly memorable by the vision of the impossibly gigantic full moon! I took time with the details of the moon’s cratered surface. The moon is painted in a warm white, in contrast to the cool whites in the rest of the painting, giving it a golden glow.

Stargazer

May 9th, 2016

Here is another multi-panel painting–this one 5 panels, adding up to 5 feet across!

This one is to hang on a large wall, so everyone is drawn to it from across a room. It’s called “Stargazer.”

A continuation on my “Thinker” theme, this painting has a similar color scheme to my painting “Five-Year Plan,” filled with red-orange and gold. The person in this one is positioned a little differently, but is still clearly in a thinking pose, clasping her hands around her knees, with her head leaned back against the tree as she looks up and out at the star-filled sky.

The way the branches weave and arch gracefully through the sky, curving at their ends, remind me of dancers. The bright moon filling the whole sky with a golden light enhances the dramatic form of the tree.

The mountains in the distance range in color from ash blue to inky purple, while reflected orange light from the rising moon glows on the horizon. The sky spreads out to infinity, whole galaxies showing up as clouds and streaks of burning white stars.

The multi-panel dimension of this piece is really cool! The edges of the panels are cross-sections of the image.

That Silver Night

May 6th, 2016

This 3-panel painting is called “That Silver Night.”

I had an image in my mind of this tree, shimmering silver in moonlight, its gently curving branches reaching out to the sides unbelievably far and low to the ground. And this woman, in the light of the moon, framed by the embrace of the tree.

This feels like a special moment to me, a momentous night to remember. I imagine she is starting a new phase, accepting and celebrating everything that has led her to this point, while gathering up her inner strength and feeling herself fall into step with the course of her life.

Five-Year Plan

May 1st, 2016

This intense panorama landscape is 4 feet wide and painted all in orange and red. It is powerful in person!

After my recent painting Night Thinker, I felt driven to paint another person in “Thinker pose” sitting under a Tree of Life, silhouetted by the full moon. It’s just such a striking vision to me.

“Five-Year Plan” is both a funny and an accurate title to me.

When I finally finished the painting I thought about it for days before giving it a title, wondering what would be going through my own mind, if I were the one sitting at the foot of that wide-reaching tree, gazing out at the expanse of an otherworldly sky filled with clouds of winking stars and color.

Of course the glorious landscape spread out before me under the gigantic glowing moon would be breathtaking! But after taking in my surroundings, left in this setting with nothing but time and the still night air, my thoughts would settle.

Detail: Five-Year Plan. 18" x 48", Oil on Canvas, © 2016 Cedar Lee

Detail: Five-Year Plan. 18″ x 48″, Oil on Canvas, © 2016 Cedar Lee

And I would most likely start thinking about my life. Where I’ve been, and where I’m going. I’d be generating ideas, brainstorming, tossing things up in the air and forming them into the seeds of new plans.

It’s appropriate to me that the person is sitting with the Tree of Life, which branches out in all directions just like our thoughts. The Tree encompasses all things, all possibilities. The shape it forms is balanced and complete, like a plan coming into being.

Moon Dreams

April 29th, 2016

Here is “Moon Dreams.”

A Closer Look

April 27th, 2016

Here’s a quick departure from my recent Tree of Life and cosmic themes–my newest painting in my Lotus series!

This painting is called “A Closer Look” because to me, it gives the feeling of really slowing down to examine this lotus flower, half-bloomed on a backdrop of glossy green leaves. The image is sort of zoomed-in, the flower larger than life.

A Closer Look. 24" x 30", Oil on Wood, © 2016 Cedar Lee

When we take the time to look up close at beautiful things like this, we access another layer of wonder–the beauty in the details–that we might not notice just in passing. The title has an alternate meaning to me as well, because of the spiritual symbolism of the lotus flower. The lotus is associated with transcending beyond the physical, reaching for something beyond the daily distractions and attachments we all deal with.

In the act of meditation, or even just slowing down to take a few deep breaths, we are taking a closer look inside ourselves, taking stock of what’s going on in the mind and the body.

This painting to me is about reflection, examination, slowing down, appreciating. I quite think it’s a good image to gaze upon while taking a time out to breathe deeply and relax.

Splashy and colorful, it’s also about love and happiness!
The oil paint is mixed with cold wax medium and was painted with a palette knife. I can’t tell you how beautiful the texture of this piece is in person!
