Getting Bigger...

30" x 40" x 2"
Acrylic/Mixed media on canvas

I scooped this canvas up on the cheap and I'm glad I did: I really like working a little larger than what I'm used to. It allows me to feel a little more free and develop "regions" within the composition. I don't know, it felt cool. I guess I actually a little more pressure at first too though. You can't really tell, but this has so many layers of paint on it as I started over about six times. But, I'm happy with it now and here it is.

Going to do the 1460 Wall Mountables show again this summer at DCAC so I've got to get busy. For those of you not familiar with the show, it's an open show where they grid the walls off at 2' squares and your work has to fit within it. It's really fun, but I'm realizing it's a contradiction to what I wrote above about working larger. Oh well. I've got some sweet gas station numbers (the ones that slide into the marquee to tell you how much gas has gone up) that I'm working with and will exhibit at this show. Don't ask how I acquired them. Photos to follow...
