Three Muses, Contemporary Figurative painting of 3 women, fates, drei musen, tres musas

$1500 plus $50 shipping in US. CA residents, please add 7.5% sales tax International shipping available. Email: marie@mariefox.com Click image to view larger

The painting has been accepted in the TAG Gallery California Open Exhibit, Santa Monica and will on display Aug 8-24 and may be purchased through the gallery.

One of my favorite topics is the Three Muses, or Graces. In this case I was inspired by Pradier's gorgeous marble sculpture in the Louvre but I changed the arm and head positions. The fun part for me is that I started with an abstract painting and covered over everything except the area of the dresses. So the somewhat realistic faces contrast with the flat abstract pattern below.

This one was an experiment with color so it was difficult to photograph. The background is more of a lavender color. There are a lot of colors in the face and I'm going to keep making these small portraits as practice.

This painting has a lot of texture as it's been through many changes. I also drew and colored with water-soluble crayons on top of the acrylic paint. Long ago I started with the pose which I loved because of the relaxed slump of the body. I've finally found a story for her.

This is a study I did recently from a model wearing a buttercup yellow shirt and head scarf. I loved painting her face and the folds of fabric in her shirt and scarf. Happily, I was able to abbreviate things a bit and not get stuck on all the details I saw.

I have no idea where this idea came from. I simply wanted to picture three nude women dancing or at play - and the dove appeared. This is mostly an experiment painting flesh and using odd but interesting color choices overall.
