Fading Into Nothing (Swipe for details)
This just left my studio to Canada. It's been on my wall next to my desk for years. I did some studies of this around 6 years ago and a realized the series around 4 years ago.
A lot of paintings start off as ideas, studies, and I will come back to the idea at a later date. The important part of realizing the concept is time, which brings perspective and new ideas. I am holding onto the first piece of this series at my house and will be doing a couple more in the next 3-4 months.

The last detail.

I spend a lot of time making, altering and mixing paint. It's interesting to see how it behaves, but in the end, you have to do something with it. A lot of my 'studies' are me messing with these materials and seeing how they perform.
This piece was really interesting in many ways. Great details and looks very dimensional but it's flat. I am often drawn to smaller scale art, because it, should, force you to engage with it if you want to view it properly. When a work is larger, the scale provides you the luxury of not having to approach it or inquire as much. I love larger works because of the dramatic appeal, but I feel that it can be a crutch or an easy out. That being said, I have been working on larger pieces and it has been the hardest challenge of my career, working like I do.
