Tunc Submersae by AKOrganicAbstracts Tunc Submersae by AKOrganicAbstracts
Painting tabletops is what happens when this artist is painting from the couch post surgery.  Looking forward to getting back into my studio, but this will do for now.  I see the addition of fish and possibly an amphibian, since I seem to be on that kick as of late.  Thinking of turning this into a clock. - AK

Update - Playing a painter's version of Operation as I attempt to give Froggy a clockwork belly.  The imaginary buzzer went off several times as my dangerously high level of caffeine has left me unable to complete detail work while coloring inside the lines.  This may be the sum of today's efforts.

Ah, complete at last.  Well, the painting, that is.  Later today I will add the clock mechanism and edit the work to be suitable for prints.  But for now....

Very borderline abstract in terms of concept and amazing in execution! Great work, love the way the whole scene works with the shape of the table.

i went thru a tough time last year when i broke my right wrist & ended up spending 3 months all up in plaster, so i can relate to the whole getting over surgery thing! good luck!

AKOrganicAbstracts Featured By Owner Feb 24, 2014  Professional Traditional Artist
Recovery is simply the worst, isn't it?  At least I wasn't encased in plaster, thank you for reminding me it could have been worse!  Thank you for the well-wishes, and I hope you have recovered as well.  BTW - you have a very unique style, both in subject matter and actual painting technique... your compositions are extremely interesting and compelling.

thankyou! and thankyou for the fave: that one's my fave too! 
i keep looking at your work & getting lost in all the beautiful landscapes that a dreamer like me can find in each one! love the clockwork frog & the colours & movement! do you plan compositions, or do you let the painting grow by itself as you paint it?
Reply
:iconakorganicabstracts:
AKOrganicAbstracts Featured By Owner Feb 26, 2014  Professional Traditional Artist
Well thank you so much...  I tend to not plan my compositions.  I generally start with a mood or concept I want to explore - at most a specific subject, like the frog - and let things take their course.  My paintings generally evolve as I work.

yes, more frogs! Also, love the dissection, AND the fact that it's clockwork. Brings me back to one of my old paintings: corviid.deviantart.com/art/Pla…

I love the linework in that one.  The way the wings appear to shimmer and leap off the paper is so cool.  I'm not sure what it is about clockwork, do you?  I am just drawn to the mechanical vs. natural.  Endlessly fun subject to explore.

:iconcorviid:
Corviid Featured By Owner Feb 20, 2014  Professional Traditional Artist
I absolutely agree. My only hesitation is the tendency for others to automatically see 'steampunk' in anything involving clock gears.

I love the juxtaposition of mechanical & natural - and how it can take many forms on either side.
