Paint Me A Moon

 

Pulp Friction Sq 2500

“Pulp Friction” (20″x20″) Acrylic on Canvas

For me, Ski Season has become a time of year that images of winter dance in my head and materialize onto canvas with little or no real effort.  Remember “Close Encounters of the Third Kind”?  Think of me as a crazed Richard Dryfus painting moons rather than molding the Devils Tower.  My Studio is beginning to resemble a Super Moon Factory and it is time for a year end liquidation sale so I can make room for more.  Keep an eye on my etsy shop for details.

I’ve often read that when you are on the right path composition wise, you can look at a painting upside down and still think it works.  This tidbit of advice is finally starting to resonate with me on a personal level for the first time since I started painting some ten years ago.  The revelation came to me as I flipped this canvas to paint the sides.  Perhaps it has to do with the fact that I’m focussing more on anchoring my compositions with fewer and larger objects.  Perhaps it is because I’m having so much fun.
