Say Less

Acrylic on Canvas

“Even though I’m a planner when it comes to painting, there are still some images that push their way in and I end up with something completely different from what I  originally had in mind. Say Less is a perfect example of this. 

I really like this piece, partly because I allowed my work area surroundings to dictate  what the background composition would be. Scrap pieces of paper just basically took the stage and I placed a kind of trust in what I was seeing and let it be…..and because  I really love a bit of tromp l’oeil I allowed that to be part of the image and again played  with that by incorporating the bar code and accentuating the paper strips.

Even the figure in this work was a huge evolution and became someone completely different from my original intention. So truthfully there was a bit of kicking and  screaming on my behalf to let go of the reins a bit and just let things happen. But in the end I’m really good with it. ”

Diana Creasy-Funk

What started out as simple pencil drawings in school, making sketches of friends, or capturing expressions from people in magazines, she evolved her fascination with human nature into a stunningly beautiful style of portraiture. Her work still has graphite areas showing, where she initially sketches her subject, but a watered-down painting technique fleshes out the work a little bit further, carefully bringing them to an ethereal place.
