This is the work I last posted about, and then forgot to upload an image of. Anyway, it is called Octopodes and is a new mix of paint for me. The bright colors are spraypaint (never done that before...liked it). The black is oil-based pigment from a paint pen (also never used before...liked it too). It's for sale...$750
Finally finished this 5'x3' monster after redoing it 3 different times. This is the first time I've combined my black and white imagery with color. The image in color is a water color painting I did in collage. I did it here in acrylic as a background to contrast the self-portrait in black as the foreground. The color image is a mixture of faces writhing in agony. The title of the original work is Gnashing of Teeth. The new painting is called The Faces between Us and is an illustration of the inner turmoil we sometimes go through in life that can cause separation between friends and family.
It is for sale. The Faces Between Us, acrylic on canvas.
