River Dog, Oil painting on canvas 2007/8 by Amy Marie AdamsShould an artist title their work or not? Recently an impassioned discussion amongst colleagues occurred just about that topic. Most of the participants thought titles were important for various reasons – the majority did.  But I'm not here to list why you should or shouldn't title art. What mattered more to me was first that a title can influence the viewer and second, remembering that all of the people in the discussion have di...

The painting was made on cardboard from a box that was packing material from something that purchased. Sometimes my budget is low so whatever is available in my home becomes a canvas, besides mostly things in my home have at the very least a second life. But that wasn't meant to last so it was printed on fine art paper. That won't last either ultimately but will last 100  years, whereas the cardboard well that's already in a poor state…

The majority of my paintings and drawings come from my imagination. Sometimes I look in the mirror for structure to see where bones are supposed to be, etc.  and once in awhile make a painting of a 'real' person. In August, I painted this portrait of a singer who is still popular today but made it big in the 1980's. This is my tribute to her since her music has 'accompanied' me painting and inspired my Kasper Hauser series c. 2006/7…

Tori Blue, new media portrait of Tori Amos 2016 by Amy M. AdamsMaking art for me is usually done in a series. Sometimes a break from the series is needed or when I'm testing out new materials, this work is part of a series that I didn't even realise I was making :-) until a few months passed. It's a series of portraits of musicians, songwriters and composers that I enjoy listening to whilst working. This summer it started with Aurora, then Suzanne Vega and now Tori Amos. Click on their names…

I have thousands of files on my PC and it makes it hard to find things at times, and sometimes you come across something you are reminded of like this 30x40 cm oil painting from sometime around 2008/9.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                   ...

Archangel Gabriel, New Media, 2016 - Amy AdamsComposers and performers can transpose a piece of music from one key to another and this is how I view digital art. We have the tools, the keys right at our fingertips that give us the opportunity to transpose a work into a new key too. The image shown above was made in 2016 and is a derivative from my 2012 pastel drawing shown below…
