I submitted this painting to a show with the following thoughts:
My own sense of emotional and spiritual balance is dependent on the people in my life. Together we find an equilibrium that is also individual. Here I suggest a state of balance with three women supporting each other. They are like a stable triangle or pyramid in an equal-sided canvas. Each figure is a primary color and together they form a triad out of which all colors are created. Making art provides me with a profound sense of stability even though the process is tumultuous and the results uneven.

This painting was originally horizontal and depicted a woman lying on the beach. It didn't work so I turned it sideways to shake loose a possibility. The legs are virtually unchanged but everything else is new. I love this kind of playful discovery.

Figurative painting of actress at the theater holding a script
Email: marie@mariefox.com (Click image to make larger)

An actress reviews her lines between scenes at the theater. After I roughed in the figure, I added some shapes in the background which came to suggest theater props. So her dress became a costume and a script appeared in her hand.

Santa Monica Pier, Figurative Paintings of Women by California Contemporary Artist Marie Fox,























Ferris Wheel, 24" x 24", acrylic on canvas  SOLD
Figurative Acrylic Painting of A Woman
Email: marie@mariefox.com (Click image to make larger)

This is an imaginary view of the Ferris Wheel on the Santa Monica Pier. The circle began as an abstraction but with touches of color came to suggest this amusement park over the Pacific. I'm happy with the shapes of the woman and chair as well as the overall composition. A completed painting always surprises me in that I discover new bits that I really like.

I like the effect of painting on a black surface and outlining the figure with orange. She's wonderfully too big for the sofa yet comfortable enough to get into a good sleep. I'm eager to explore these painting techniques further.
