Fragments Of Blue by Janis B. Goldblatt

Acrylic on canvas board (16x20 image) 
Currently showing at Foothills Art Center, Golden CO Feb 4- April 23, 2017
I have been exploring existential concepts through abstract watermedia paintings over recent time.  The images are intuitively created and express ideas and feelings about the human condition including continuums of life and death; our sense of relatedness, love and connection as well as isolation and aloneness in the world; and an expression of our intellectual, spiritual and emotional aspects of self.
Fragments Of Blue is part of my “Blue Series”.  I lost my sister this past year and this painting captures a continuum of complex feelings including the sadness of loss; the remembrance of joy; and the continuity of love and connection

Abstract Play

Abstract Play - original watercolor abstract by Janis Goldblatt.  Image is 17x23.

After over a week of being a serious, responsible adult, taking care of family business, I had to explore a bit of playfulness through my paintings. In the next few days,  I will post the one I did last night, but thought this image also captured a bit of that child-like delight within.

POINT GALLERY  765 Santa Fe Dr., Denver, CO
Opening reception:  Fri., Dec 5  6-8pm
Exhibition dates:  Dec 2 - Dec 20

 After applying transparent washes wet into wet, and then drying the underpainting,  I began building color with  thick out-of-the tube watercolors including more opaque watercolors (as well as titanium white and neutral tint) all of which provided excellent coverage.  I used traditional brushes, a pallette knife, and the end of a paint brush handle to scrape, apply and slather on paint using an "impasto" and scraffito method.

Pieces Of The Puzzle

Abstract painting by Janis Goldblatt in progress.....After painting landscapes all summer long, I had to go back to working on abstract pieces.  I find that the "mix" of representational and non-representational or abstract keeps it all so very interesting and fresh.    Also, changing my materials maintains a sense of exploration, excitement and seems to enrich the experience!
To purchase, contact Janis at

Path Along The Poudre and View Of The Cliffs

Both paintings were painted en plein air during Paint The Poudre event in Fort Collins, CO.  The show was overwhelmingly well received and I will look forward to participating again next summer!
