An Abstract Realistic Transparent Oil and Scribble Painting

It's Confidential
20 X 24    thinned oil on canvas
with graphite

This is another painting of two of my daughters engaged
in conversation.  Must be 'confidential'.  I've tried this in
a different technique.  Very little paint is used - it's
thinned with paint thinner and appears to be a
watercolor and I can hardly wait to get to the point
to scribble ! Anyway, it's fun and freeing.  Enjoy!

O.K., so I traveled to Washington DC with my beautiful
daughters for my birthday, and everywhere we go, I coerce them 
to 'pose' for me of which they now have become acquiescent.  
Here we are at the Supreme Court which was on the list
because two of them are attorneys and one is an interior designer 
and an unbelievable artist, so the architecture and the representation
of this building was a must!
To me, they make wonderful models, but because of my
signature style of 'featureless' faces, they can become
anyone.  Therein lies the fun of it!  The contrast of the light and
shadow in this scene was enticing to me.  I hope I have done it justice!

By Appearance II
                                                                               


 Not really a diptych, but they sold as one.  Another of my  'technique' 
of a painting within a painting.  Subtle, muted colors with just a little
vibrancy and texture added.  These turned out a somewhat bright,
so I used one of my tricks and covered them with a wash of
raw umber to tone down.

I've begun to do some small pieces and I love doing
them, but must confess, it is a learning process, since
I'm so used to painting pretty large works.
But...wouldn't you love to be under that umbrella?

The Vision


mallisonartist.com

24 X 36 oil and glazes
M. Allison
available for auction on Daily Paintworks.com
starting bid: 600.

A 'newish' concept letting the background do a lot of the work.
It's done with lots of layers drawing your eye down
to the focal point of the painting. My featurless face
with a mood to unravel and a story to tell.

I feel this painting is a little mysterious in feeling - something you
(the viewer) can create and give a story to and make up your
own interpretation.  Maybe someone's after her 'orange slippers'!

Fabulous idea!  Go for it!

I've been doing several small paintings and although I'm more comfortable
painting large paintings, these have come in handy for gifts and clients with
limited space.  My final detail that I use quite a lot is graphite 'scribble'  It's a 
fun ending!

I Must Be Dreaming I


I Must Be Dreaming II



A pair of crazies!  Actually derivatives from my 'From Within' series 
which I think will go on forever!  It's merely a certain technique that 
I seem to love doing.  These little puppies can stay together or
they can be separated.  Splashy and fun!

contact me for purchase
through my email:  mallisonartist.com 
or through paypal

© M. Allison 2011

This painting has an abstract feel with a realistic painting of a ribbon.  Kind of a dichotomy and that's the reason for the name 'Real and Unreal'  I love to use graphite lines in my work - it's just a little finishing touch.  This painting is 600.

This is the first of three (so far) series, hence the name 'Alpha'.
The first image is a detail of a lightly rusted metal band around the edge of each painting.  It's a pretty cool and unique feature and definitely no need for a frame!

Another pose of two of my three daughters.  They are fun to paint because they are truly model material!  Funny how their body language denotes which child they are even without facial
 features, which is somewhat of a signature of my figures.  They are engrossed in something.  Maybe it's showing off an engagement ring or a new mani.   Nevertheless, we were shopping in Austin and I asked them to pose.  They are getting used to this now after balking about it for a long time.  I think they think they ARE models and good ones!

A Very Contemporary Self Portrait

Self Portrait
36 X 48 oil on canvas

contact me for commissions or purchases;
allison@mallisonartist.com
© M. Allison 2011


How many artists paint a painting and then call it a self portrait after the fact?  Well... it could be me or it could be you or it could be your best friend.  That's the fun of the figurative paintings I do without features.  Please forgive the irregular outline of the gold (still trying to perfect my photography!)  I do like the gold around the edges - a painted frame.  I used 'Rub n Buff', a product I use a lot that comes in a little tube that really isn't to be used as paint in a painting, but to me it works great in so many ways.  So what's her name anyway?

This painting just sold at Kirchman Gallery and it is one of my favorites.  It's from a technique I've dubbed 'From Within'.  Please forgive - I took this photo with the flash and since I've learned alot about shooting my own art and am the proud owner of a new camera that I can actually understand and a tripod.  I feel so professional!

 Can you imagine the tete a tete these 'girls' are having with each other (and maybe the conversation about the few down the way?  This painting just flew by and that's a sign of total immersion into it - forgetting time and the world around.  It's such a peaceful place to be. 
I have discovered a new color that I think I've mentioned previously called Davey's Gray by Grumbacher.  I love it!  This painting tells so many stories - whatever you want to perceive.

This painting is currently in an exhibit at the Continental Building in downtown Houston.  It's done in oils, oil glazes, texture, acrylics and collage.  I think it has somewhat of a mysterious old feeling and is I think it is inticing to the viewer.

This was a pleasure to paint.  I love the undulating shapes, the blending of the colors and especially the diffused edges.  I also like to add graphite ( in this one, just a little) for detail.  Flowers and yet an abstract.
