So this for me is exciting. My art will appear at Grooveground in Collingswood, New Jersey starting February 7, 2014 going through the rest of the month. The address is:
647 Haddon Ave, Collingswood, NJ 08108
I had originally done this as a background for a different piece. A piece that I completely abandoned. Some paintings are meant to be and the previous incarnation of this one was not. It sat around for quite some time until I recently rediscovered it. A little more work and a few touchups and it is ready to go.
Prints from my abstract page.
I called this one finished once before and then decided it wasn’t. I pulled it and started reworking it but was not happy with the result. That happens sometimes. When it does the piece gets put aside for a later date. Today was the later date for Cloudy Sky. To achieve the current state of completed required a complete reworking of the mountains in new painting software I’ve been working in. It is called ArtRage and considering how inexpensive it is, I’m finding it quite impressive.
It is a simple monochromatic landscape with mountains in the foreground and a cloudy sky above. Prints available on my Landscape page.
Hats off to “Bear” fans. Not my typical figure, but this one I think is more representative to what most men actually looked like. And if you don’t get the “Bear” reference just search for Gay Bear and you’ll learn more than you ever wanted to know.
I’ve kept this one well within the Impressionist style. Bold brush strokes, minimal blending and no black. Prints from the Figures page.
