Art of the Day: Friday September 23, 2011

Autumn Koi

- by Carmen Gamboa Lienkaemper

This week's theme: Fall

This year the Vernal Equinox - or September Equinox as many prefer, occurs on Friday, September 23rd at 5:05 AM Eastern Daylight time. This week, EBSQ's Art of the Day features art that speaks to the Autumn season in the Northern Hemisphere. Next week Art of the Day will focus on the changes the Equinox brings to the Southern Hemisphere.

Art: Autumn Koi by Artist Carmen Gamboa Lienkaemper

This is my favorite painting in my Koi series. I love the effects of the background on this piece. It is a lot of fun dripping water onto the layered paint. I feel the mystery of the water, the unseen, fits Bokeh. We try to look in as the fish looks out in turn. This painted on Arches 140lb watercolor paper with Winsor and Newton artist grade paint.

This painting is in the Marin Community Foundation show at Hamilton Field in Hanger 5.  It will be on display

there along with works of 12 different studio groups.  A great space to see alot of fantastic work by Marin artists.

The show will be up until the end of December 2011.
