These are fun times! LITERALLY!
I am working on the silliest work I have done to date!
The new pieces are LARGE versions of my classic 6" x 6" Mixed Message series paintings....I haven't shown them YET....but I am excited for people to see them!
As you know, I am really not a wildlife painter, so getting the chance to paint animals has been super fun! It's good to try a new thing! I think the large pieces are some of the most successful pieces I have done in this series. I hope you can check them out next week at Noodle Gallery -- which is a BEAUTIFUL space in Caledon:
HERE ARE THE SHOW DEETS:
Studio 216, 1402 Queen St.,Alton Village, Caledon, ON.

ALL SUPER FUN AND WHIMSICAL STUFF!!!
As I keep mentioning, I have completed OVER 40 brand new pieces for the show....and I am thrilled!
In addition to animals, there are some more landscape-y works available at this show! This one is called "Trailblazer", and was a LOT of work....but I am happy with how it turned out EVENTUALLY....here are a couple in-process photos...
AND HERE IS THE FINAL IMAGE:
In the end it was A LOT more work than I expected...I couldn't get it working for several days! At one point, I even thought I would just quit....BUT THEN....as soon as I stopped looking at my reference, I GOT IT!
That was a great lesson!
It is great to have your plan, drawings and reference for the final piece, but at some point you need to put it ALL away and paint how you are feeling!!
I hope someone snaps this beauty up!
Remember, you can see this big boy LIVE and in person at Noodle Gallery starting this upcoming Wednesday February 21st!
