I think I've mentioned before that I have a show coming up February 3rd. I think I need about 8 or so paintings for it. As soon as that giganormous job was finished for United Airlines (I'll show the art as soon as I know I'm in the clear) I moved on to start the show paintings. For me, painting for shows is more difficult than painting for a client. For a client, you find out what they need and you just paint it. Easy. For shows, it's all up to you. What do you want to say? How do you want to say it? Does it have to say something?... etc. It has to be somewhat cohesive and give people a certain vibe.
I finished painting number 2 this afternoon. (See below for both 1 and 2). I think they are reflecting what I'm feeling inside a little... This Indiana weather is really starting to beat me up. No sun. Just gray and cold. It's coming out through my art.
Maybe I'll try to rev color a little for my next one... Try to battle this from my side.
