No picture seems to capture the feeling of this 4’x5’ painting of Alexander Milov’s “Love” sculpture. The colors are so intense, the Inner Children and the cage-like adult figures are practically sculpted in the paint. What a lovely adventure it was to paint this! And I feel like I don’t work in oil paint as much as I’d love to. The drying time is always an inhibitor for commissions, but the owner of the company that requested this piece didn’t mind waiting patiently. Please enjoy!
On day 6 I had spent most of the day in the car driving all around the state of Georgia, but I made sure to get a quick painting in before bed. I only put in about half an hour, but I don’t want to miss a day!
Day 7 – Uptown Columbus on the Chattahoochee
Last month I painted a mural on the wall of Masterpiece Mixers in Peachtree Corners. The owners wanted something to represent the area, and so we went with the Forum shopping center. This was a massive mural, and I totally killed it knocking it out in about 12 hours as I had only one day to create it!
The Christmas season is in full swing! I don’t have a lot that I can share with you since many of my projects are gifts! Also on the list is a commissioned painting for someone’s birthday, a mural for an elementary school, and I just wrapped up a huge 40″x90″ painting of Daytona Beach — which is one thing I can share. Hope you enjoy… I’ll post some of my other projects after Christmas when I no longer have to keep them a secret! Merry Christmas!!
So I had a little time this week to work on a new painting!
I had a fantastic time at a park nearby, just spending a few hours enjoying a lovely– if a little cloudy– fall afternoon. Taking in the scenery, working on my passion, and I even brought a pumpkin spice latte with me! It was the ultimate fall excursion! The result was what may be my new favorite painting (or maybe I’m just a little partial to the season) on an 8″x10″ canvas.
Also? I made new friends! Ducks love you if you feed them!
