Portrait of Elisha by Mindy Fisher @Ornaglyphology

Elisha Sarti - 2017
Mindy Fisher, Elisha, 2017
Gouache Painting
8 x 8 inches.

Mindy Fisher @Ornaglyphology began the Lady of the Month portraits project at the beginning of 2017, when in response to 2016’s “crazy and disappointing” U.S. election, she decided to each month of the Trump presidency, and possibly beyond, paint a portrait of a woman who has inspired her. “I want to fight hate and fear with love,” says the artist.

I am flattered and very excited to share that this month Mindy chose to paint a portrait of me as her Lady of the Month! Click here or the image above to learn more.

Mindy, who’s based in Vermont, specializes in gouache paintings. I especially admire and am often intrigued by her ongoing series called “Ornaglyphs” which feature “bird-like characters and a hieroglyphic non-language that is open to interpretation.” When the ornaglyphs are not part of a portrait, she creates them spontaneously and from a stream-of-conscious mindset.

To learn more about her projects and see more of her lovely artworks, check out Mindy’s web site here: MindyFisher.com

So is Mirror #8: Marine Life (8 Clams), and now Mirror #3: Thunderbolt Toddy. #7 and #2 are getting close – see the studio pictures below. Click each image to see it larger.

Painting in Progress – Who 64

Elisha Sarti, Working title: Who 64, in progress
40 in x 16.5 in / 101.6 cm x 41.91 cm.

Above is a close up of a painting I’m working on right now. It’s mixed media (acrylic paint and paper pulp so far) on wood panel.

Elisha Sarti - Painting in progress - 2014

I like to work on the floor as well as at the easel and tables, especially when the piece is on a panel instead of a canvas.

There will probably be some more numbers added in soon and much more experimenting with the paper pulp texture. Stay tuned!

Sketch for a New Painting

Here’s what I’m working on now. It’s a wood panel, 40 inches x 16.5 inches. You can see the light sketch I’ve drawn in, using an (unpublished) collage I made on a small piece of packaging tape as my reference. There’s no title yet but I’m thinking of it as “Who 64” so far.

PS Sued/Pens – An Old/New Piece in Progress

Sorting through the last few unopened boxes packed when I moved from Colorado to New York in 2012, I found this piece I was working on in the mid 2000’s. It’s called PS Sued/Pens because of the text it features. It’s nearly done, I’m just deciding how I’d like to display it as a finished work. I hope to post an update about that very soon! In the meantime, check out these two pictures.

Updates from my studio

As you can see from my art studio selfie, I’m happy to update you with photos my work in progress… First, here’s a painting I started just a few sessions ago. It’s not yet titled, is on canvas and I must say is going great so far! I really like how their faces are turning out. Next, there’s an easel shot and a close-up of Uinformation. That one’s acrylic on wood panel and it’s really getting close to its finished state. I’m enjoying scratching into the wood with some of my old printmaking tools to sharpen up some details. I’ve also included a casual shot of a painting with twin faces, which I’ve recently decided to title Ore. Further down you’ll see the latest update to the mirrored numbers series I’ve been collaborating on with my friend artist Angela Oaks. This is #4 in the series and it’s in progress.
