This is a 4' x5' commission I have worked on at Flat River Gallery and Framing for a few months now. The canvas was too big to work on comfortably in my studio, and it wouldn't fit in my car! Kind friends with a covered pickup were my canvas transport helpers. It's as yet untitled (something about cycles of the moon perhaps). It now hangs in a house in the woods over a magnificent fireplace in a great room with lots of windows. I am so honored to have it there. It's the largest painting I've ever done (except for some wall murals in my past). I did lots of sketches and it didn't follow the plan of any of them! It developed organically.
