Day 3 on this one. Spent some time on the repetition and basic shapes of the wallpaper and got a start on the whiskey glass. I'm really enjoying working on this one.. although.. I'm not sure if wallpaper is my favorite thing to paint. Lol. #patienceinrepetition #art #bespoke #pittuomo #detroit #igartist #invisiblegentleman #gent #mensfashion #monkstraps #davidgandy

Working on a new piece finally. :,) This is going to take some work but the finished painting is gonna pop out of the canvas. :,) #invisiblegentleman #gentleman #gentlemansclub #bespoke #tailor #oiloncanvas #igartist #bensharkey #aimingforaspringshow

"The Candy Bar" 4'x5' oil and wax on canvas. This painting was conceptualized while having drinks with a friend and client at the Candy Bar in Detroit's Siren Hotel. I love the old Hollywood vibe that it conveys. The colors were inspired by a collection of perfume bottles that my client has in her bedroom. It was a hard deadline to reach and it's still wet for a photoshoot for a home decor magazine that is taking place as I type this description. :,) This is not my usual approach to a painting but I had fun thinking outside the box and challenging myself with some freedom. Yes, freedom can be challenging for me, I tend to have more of a realistic approach which is confined by the rules of light and relationships between objects. This painting will be available soon for reproduction. :,)
