What started nearly a whole year ago with the purchase of the biggest canvas I’ve ever attempted to work on has now come to a end.
A challenge which led me to paint over previous work twice and begin anew has built up to what I show you here.
Love at first sight.
Months later: A kaleidoscopic melange of color depicting “Dexter”
Detail of “Dexter’s” eye
While have some strong points I felt the piece wasn’t working as a whole. So I applied gesso to start again.
A rushed 2nd subject.
So once more I brushed gesso to cover over a total of six months work.
A relaxed state entered my days as I mixed color to begin a new subject.
Even before the paint went onto the canvas, I knew this time that the results would be good.
5 months passed by, night after night I worked at the easel building, sculpting color to create one of my strongest pieces.
RESILIENCE – 48″ x 60″ acrylic on canvas
Perspective of size compared to some of my other work.
Such as it is I am still editing down the days of video shot while creating this painting. In the near future I will be posting that video!
Thanks to all that supported me while venturing on this journey, it has been amazing.
