Happy 7th Birthday to the most special little human I've ever known ❤️
I'm happy to announce the launch of my new website www.derekkaplan.com. My new site is more curated to give you a better appreciation of my growing ‘storm’ and 'abstract' collections, as well as displaying works I have never shown before! As previously announced, I am also introducing three Limited Edition Prints (Editions of 10) based on what I consider “touchstone” paintings I have made in past years.
TB ..Thanks Kai Lol
This STORM is a mile stone for me, despite it still verging more on the illustrative side of what a Storm would look like. I've used certain abstract qualities to enhance the 'moodiness', but I have further to go (just not with this painting or else it would be destroyed!). I knew when to stop here which is a sign I am on the right track ;-) Title: STORM Medium: Oil Size: 40 x 60 x 1.5" (not for sale yet!)
the inspiration for this painting is volcanic fire... a metaphor for 'passion'?
There are endless ways I can create this storm painting.... so many styles I want to use, so many methods to do this. I'm using acrylic here where I have to struggle with it's notoriously quick dying time, and as a result, act and think quickly. It's frustrating but rewarding when you do break through... wish me luck Lol..
