I finally finished this commission, i may have posted it at an earlier stage, dont remember,i started this in the spring for a client here in Tubac, They went back up north and have recently returned for the winter. I set it aside for a while ,there were some things i had to resolve, This was tricky because i had to try and capture the dusk light coming from behind the viewer and also the cooler
light from the moon and sky. I will call this one done as i think i have what i want now
I've sculpted a forest of maple trees on this 30" x 60" wood panel, and today I'm going to paint it. This I will be doing as I wait for "The Chaperones" to dry before painting them. I'm trying to always have pieces in different stages so that I am never just sitting on my hands waiting. I've got my own little sweat shop going!
I know it doesn't look like much right now, but just wait, it's going to be beautiful!
Economy Class has newspaper armature, is sculpted using Sculptamold, a paper & Gypsum compound, & painted with Acrylics on a 36x48 wood panel.
Inspired by my own experiences of airplane travel and the multitudinous stories that appear on the internet of other peoples trials and tribulations. Air travel in todays world is just one of those things that you must have a sense of humour about because invariably you are in situations that if you don't laugh, you will break down and cry, commit hari kari, and be on news at 11. I chose to laugh myself (and paint humourous paintings to poke fun at the whole insane situation!)
This is one of only four paintings I did this summer. Although it looks really abstract it is taken from a photo of fungus growing in the trunk of a palm. It was a house warming gift I did in and for friends in Hawaii. It is acrylic two canvases, total 36"X48 I think. Was great to paint again even if I had zero supplies, no easel, and one paint brush.
