Big and Square

Just finished up on this piece....had to take a picture of it on my easel since it is the biggest canvas I've ever had on there. I was treated to it's progress each time I walked into my studio. I have done this one to actually take up more room on the walls of the restauraunt I will be showing at in Los Olivos in December. It's a big place and I needed much larger images to show there. This out to work.

Big canvases cost a fortune and I think if I do many of them down the line I'll make them myself since I have the canvas laying around...just need frames. I think the crazy thing about working large is just being able to see the dang thing. I had to back up across the room many times...most of the time I can get away with just leaning back. My hats off to people who work much larger than this but driving them around must be a job and half.

It was fun though.

This piece is a real homerun. Some real fun discoveries in here.

Hi Les,
Thanks for the comments. I like how this one turned out too. I've got another image similar to this one, ref taken the same night, that I'm thinking of doing. Need another large panel. hahaha.
