I started this frame for Mystaphorical Parfait several months ago, but just recently finished carving the final passages. Here are the side panels just before being carved.
A few days later, I spray painted everything black. Once that paint had set up, I started in with the oil paint. I wanted to make the color scheme very muted (just four comparatively dull colors) when contrasted with what was taking place on the canvas.
It's also a bit underwhelming to see two days worth of painting summarized in just a handful of images. Here are some detail shots once the frame was installed at the Figge Art Museum.
This is what Mystaphorical Parfait looks like now.
