That Sure Is A Big Painting
Ok, I'm not trying for the Guinness Book of Records,
but this is the biggest thing I've ever painted.
Sit down while I tell you about it.
I was was hunting and stalking a store for deals late last year that would rival the #Meateater Steven Rinella when I came across not one but three 36" x 36" gallery wrapped stretched canvases. I crouched low so as not to be detected by other stalking painter shoppers. I had my prey in my sites and soon I was the victor walking out of that store.
These canvases were huge and I had doubts I could get them in my car, but I did.
I brought them home and then they stared at me for several months as I contemplated what should go on something that huge.
I finally got ideas for two of them I thought I could execute so after the first of the year and while I was teaching a months' of private lessons to people and creating my new Beginner's Painting Club, I painted huge painting #1.
Maybe I should name it that.
I've been working on paintings with lots of dramatic skies recently so I wanted this bad boy to be reflective of that.
HERE for a short video of how it evolved.
It is currently in the Community Art Center of Switzerland County, Vevay, Indiana.

Thanks so much for stopping by.
Let's paint together real soon.
