PAINTING BIG


DANCE OF DREAMS
2012

To date is my biggest painting. It used to be "Bloom" the painting below. But since then I have started a new series called "DARE TO DREAM". I find it is appropriate to paint XL when you dare to dream big dreams. Hope you enjoy the video:









THE STORY OF BLOOM
2010



My biggest so far - 7 feet by 4 feet.

I know for some of you artists out there this is NOT big.


For me it is scary - so please bear with me...

See the progress over the next few weeks...


or maybe months...who knows how long this will take me.

Second coat - here we go...

Adding more colour...

Done with the second coat.

Tomorrow is another day.

I finished the painting last November!
HERE IT IS... I CALL IT...

BLOOM

Took me a while but it is beautiful.

The painting made it to the CityScape Gallery
North Vancouver, BC Canada
The show was called "5enses and Sensibilities".
Opening Reception was September 30, 2010 from 7-9pm
The Show ended on October 23, 2010.

AND GUESS WHAT?
I made a poem about BLOOM.



Bloom

Larger than Life
Boasting lightly - vim and vigour
Destined to be bold and bigger

Better than Bliss
Blooming brightly – free and fragrant
Rich and regal – somewhat vagrant

Softer than Silk
Blushing slightly – red and rosy
Crafted to be kind and cozy

Taller than Time
Budding tightly – bloom and blossom
Never wilting – always awesome


AND GUESS WHAT?
The painting SOLD during opening reception.
