Anyway, it was a nice chance to zoom-in on some passages in my pieces. Some of them -especially the 8' tall Fandango, are unwieldy in my studio, and I haven't taken any close-ups. Fandango is oil on canvas and comprised of three image layers.
This first image has one of the few glimpses of the undermost layer peeking out.
Dialog Series: Dipped Cone Variation.
There are two layers of painted images underneath the 'dipped cone'.
Dialog Series: Chocolate Bar Variation.
You may notice that the color/dialog squares are different thicknesses based on the cast shadows.
Carnival has two layers of painting/images plus some incised drawings in the base image (the faint white lines).
Here is a close-up of the, for lack of a waayyy better term/description, the 'Multi-Feet Motif' which I utilize in both my painted works on canvas and in some of my sculptural works to connote a possible 'Trojan Horse' scenario (i.e. a bunch a warrior dudes/bad things sneaking up in a larger carapace/package/facade/delivery vehicle).
As seen in Carnival:
As seen in the sculpture Trojan Horse:
Dialog Series: French Fry Variation.
Dialog Series: Double Cheeseburger Variation.
Just a little of the base image pokes out just right of center in this image (very little of the incising done in the base layer can still be seen (at least in a photograph)).
Until next time.....
