Finally, I can reveal the painting I’ve been working on. It was hard not showing off the work as it progressed as I usually do on various social media. Normally, I don’t paint for other people… I tend to do what I want on a whim, but this was an old co-worker and friend and the image was pretty cute and similar to what I normally l do.
I worked on this pretty much every night for several weeks. It is not a hard image to reproduce, but because the size it took a while. They wanted big enough to fille a wall but my car would only fit a 4×6. By the time it was completed I didn’t want to give it away. This isn’t usually the type of imagery I paint, but in person, it was pretty stunning. Or maybe the colors just worked really well in my living room.
Like most of my stuff, this is not an original. I was handed an image and was asked to turn it into a painting. I’m pretty good at copying things, not so great at conceiving things. I tried googling around when I first got the image to try and attribute it to the artist, unfortunately, I couldn’t find it at that time.
