So I have more new work that I have completed for an upcoming show. I’ve embedded pictures from my Instagram. The show is going to be at the Plum Art Gallery in St.Augustine, FL and the opening reception is September 5th, 5pm-9pm.

Also, I will be smoothing into a new collection of paintings that will be heavily reliant on the theme of textiles, patterns, and fashion. It will be Pop-Culture/Familial influenced with a homage of colors and prints from the 60’s and 70’s. I also have other ideas for paintings that are for a whole other collection, but it’s very far fetched. One of my dreams is to be able to paint my favorite musicians and not from other people’s photography, I would like to do my own photo shoots etc. but this seems a little out there because I don’t know any successful musicians personally. I often think if I approached someone of high musical caliber they might think I am some creep, no I am not, I’m a weird nerdy artist, but you cannot be an artist without being weird and nerdy.

Website has also been updated, go have a look at the new works. www.johannafalzone.com

Also you can find these on my website under “Drawings”, I consider them drawing with thread, thats basically what embroidery is. 🙂 Anyway enjoy, I’m currently working on finishing up the “Recovery Room” painting of myself as Margot Tenenbaum (again) today, just putting in the background details.

So I have finished all four Plath paintings. I will say I am overly ambitiously considering adding more paintings to this collection… Anyway, the first painting “Sylvia Plath Smith College Year Book Picture” was a rare find as I stated earlier, and how I found this image was through ta-da, Ebay. Someone was selling a Smith College Yearbook and Plath’s picture was obviously the reason for selling it, me and my amazing print-screen button was able to copy the picture and store it for my forever viewing pleasure and art purposes. This remains my absolute favorite photo of Plath, she never looked so bright and cheery. The other three photos are studio portraits copied from the book “The Unabridged Journals of Sylvia Plath” of which I have been reading all summer except “Sylvia Plath Clear Studio Portrait” that image came from The Google. The Trio of Plath paintings I decided to paint from Clear to Blurry to show Plath’s mental state transitioning from clear to jumbled, happy to sad, etc etc etc. So I hope you enjoy the paintings, this is last paintings until I get back the institution, so there may be more of these in the coming weeks, there may not be, who knows…
