oil on canvas board
I listened to The Buried Giant by Kazuo Ishiguro while painting this. It is a book that transports you to the world of myths while tugging at your conciousness with its very real allusions to the present day. I think some of its magic is woven into my colors and shapes.
This is the largest painting I have done in several years. It took many days and I am happy with the results but probably won't be painting large as a regular thing as I really like the idea of completing work in a day or two. I also like sitting and working on something at the table where I can easily move the canvas around. Another problem with a larger work is that I can't scan it into my computer but must take a picture of it. Scanning really reproduces the work much better. This piece actually has a lot of juicy paint which is completely lost in this reproduction.
