Nine canvases of various sizes. I took my inspiration from an old b&w photograph that I've had for years. I carefully considered a graph with negative space. Half inch equaled one foot. Dimensions are approximately 13.5' x 14'. We couldn't eliminate the angle, even from hanging over the upstairs railing - the pros will do that for us. Michael just left to discuss the project with the photographer, Cheuvront Studios. Al and Allen are actually looking forward to taking this one on. Ha!
My intention is to take this genre painting and crossover to the mainstream. I'm attempting something fresh, edgy, and innovative. Asking myself constantly, "...how do I present this tired old subject with a new approach that won't alienate my clients and still stay true to myself?"
Scale photo. I'm about 5'6".
