After many months of painting, ignoring, and painting some more, I have finished the largest canvas I’ve painted on to date. It has left me with mixed emotions; I love the size and challenge, but it is not a practical thing to paint this big in the space I have. Also, I have no gallery representation yet and so the odds of me selling a work of this magnitude on my own are bad. My big canvas, big sale days are near, I’m certain, but for now I think it best to go back to canvases a wee bit smaller.
Just finished: Chapel – 2013 Oil on 4′ x 5′ canvas
For scale, this is the painting drying in the guest/spare room over a double sofa bed.
Gonna be expensive to frame this bugger. 🙂
