This series was very exciting to create. I had started on the blue stones, 8" x 12", just a week prior to school warming up for the semester. The first piece is the 24" x 24" black panel where I made a startling discovery that I can buff the oil paint into a very high gloss surface. I then wanted to continue the technique onto a smaller surface 8" x 13", where I concentrated heavily on the shine. This piece alone is a marvel. It polished up enough to see yourself. I created the 8" x 11" blue stone painting to complete the set.
The Stones themselves were very relaxing to create. I approached them as something that I knew would take a while but I knew how I wanted them to look so I buckled down and did the two blue stone panels.
Currently I have this displayed at home in one of my rooms. It is a large piece when you arrange them like this. None of these pieces are attached allowing you to arrange them however you would like.
Without commitment I write the following. I like to paint. I like to draw. I like to sculpt. I like to fix and create things.
Art is the only thing in my life that I don't have to take seriously. It comes from within and I don't argue with it. The meanings or influences that go into my painting although they are my own are easily translated by viewers from their perspective.
I have a lot of irons in the fire which is an expression meaning that I have a lot going on in my life. I build websites for companies and work from home. I have no children, I'm not married, I'm surrounded by cats, dogs and horses. I always find time to paint because I'd rather be doing that anyway.
A year or more ago I gave birth to a painting using 3 point perspective. It is titled Absolute Uncertainty. It is my member gallery but take a look at all of the developing photos, close ups and flash presentation on how to properly use 3 point perspective. I receive emails from all over the world on how cool this is, so I point to you this shining star.
Appreciate all you have in your heart and love the people around you. Dave
