…a new painting for your viewing pleasure.
October is a busy month, with no less than three group shows featuring my artwork. Since I’m terrible about planning anything blog related, I’ll do each show a bit at a time, starting with the closest one. The Hive Gallery in Los Angeles is putting on a huge art show featuring the Tarot Deck. Selected artists were asked to create an image based on a card chosen at random. My card was Justice, which I will mull over for meaning based on recent life events. It’s a return to my works on paper days, to which I have been anxious to return. The painting is acrylic on heavy paper, which was then mounted to wood. The whole thing was varnished and then resined for a nice glossy wet look. I’m very pleased with the result and will be doing more paintings with this technique in the future. I’m most comfortable on paper, and this was really fun to do and took less than half the time, while being twice as good. Go figure. Here it is, “Justice” for your viewing pleasure:
Acrylic on paper, mounted to wood, resined. 11″ x 14″
The show opens Saturday, October 3rd, at 8PM. Eight dollars at the door gains you entry to what promises to be a fantastic show. Full details below. I was lucky enough to score the cover image, so you know, that’s groovy. Contact Nathan Cartwright at The Hive Gallery for purchasing information.
More soon, I promise.
