…is that they have so many freakin COLORS in them!
Take a look at my painting stand:
At any given time while working on these paintings, I have between 12 and 18 jars of paint open! It’s ridiculous.
Oh anyway, here are a couple of detail shots from what I was working on this weekend:
and the full she-bang (as you can see, I’m working my way across the bottom still):
Finally finished with those damned bunnies! (which I really should throw a blanket over or something–they are VERY distracting to have hanging on the wall next to me while I’m trying to work. I’m pretty sure that they are mocking me, in fact.)
It was good to take a little break from the extremely detailed work that the Marble paintings require, because now I’m enjoying it again.
This is Marbles #3. As you can see here, I am working from the top down. I am almost finished with that second row of marbles (I’m doing the bright red one now). The bottom 2 rows are quite rough still….
This one is 28×30. (or is it 26×30? around that size) There are going to be two this size, and then I am going to do at least one that is 48×20. I am pretty excited about doing that one, and may even stretch the canvas and get started on it this weekend.
Here’s the second in the Marbles series. There are going to be four paintings this size/dimension: they’re 48″ x 50″. If you want to see the first one, click here)
I’m also working on a smaller canvas in this series:
Just finished these new paintings. They are plastic paratrooper bunnies–the originals are about 3″ tall, if that. I tossed off the first one (the orange one) during the Labor Day weekend, and it was such a pleasure to paint that I ran down to Pearl and immediately bought a canvas for the second one. Of course, the second one wasn’t quite as easy (or fun) to paint as the first one, but I think it looks better…
