Painting, Painting, Painting...






Well, Happy New Year all!
For my first post of 2011, I FINALLY finished a work that I did for my girlfriend's birthday. It is a painterly rendition of a photo that was taken while we were up in Duluth, MN. We were on the shore of Lake Superior and the lighting was really nice. Needless to say this photo was taken and I loved it. So, I decided to paint...

The canvas is 36"x 48".
Medium: acrylic paint, sharpie, graphite

Layers, layers and more layers!!! This is probably the most time I have ever taken on a single painting. Weeks of work went into this creating abstraction of the rock, and other forms and making them work in harmony with one another. The finished product is successful, i feel. Comments are encouraged and I will try to update with a high quality photo soon.

Hang in there until next time!
