Artist" - oil on canvas, of my other son,
painting, and Proxy the Cat, sleeping. This one was
made up, to purposefully be the opposite of "A
Child's Work" (note upper right has a corner of
that painting), with a cool tone instead of warm, and
a shallow scene without the easy perspective lines
that give the feeling of depth. Instead the play of
light on the wall provides atmosphere.
started with a rough sketch which conceptualized this
scene, and the painting is very faithful to my
original "mind's eye". This painting, in
the dim side lighting occurring in my house, just
glows and may be my favorite. The painting was done
from live, remembered, or made up objects except for
of my son, with was adapted from a photo in harsh fluorescent overhead lights.
