I just keep my head in the clouds with this new painting. It has been years since I listened to the Traveling Wilburys but they sound mighty good today (RIP TP).
This is a painting I did a bit over a year ago. I painted 5 trout images and a less then flattering but reasonably accurate self portrait. I was painting small 10″x10″ paintings as I was between studios. I discovered that they made a really cool single art piece when hung together. Now that I am in a great new studio space I have been digging through works for some upcoming shows and rediscovered these. People keep trying to buy the individual fish paintings, curiously no one wants the self portrait! For whatever reason I refuse to break up the band and am going to hang them all together in my new studio…
Bold lighting elements and soft moody atmospheric work is seemingly simple but is very challenging to paint with acrylic and open acrylic paint.
I am drawn to enigmatic imagery and though this subject is straight forward it still has a bit of mystery…. that’s what it’s all about for me.
I have been planning a series of fog related paintings, this is the first one I have gotten to. Inspired by a really foggy day in the National Bison Range in Western Montana. That heavy atmosphere all but concealed the Bison but it sure was beautiful.
This painting is 16″x16″
Excuse the song title, it is a good one though!
Just for fun posting the most recent skull paintings together. Both 10″ x 10″ acrylic. Hopefully I will be back behind the brush soon!
