Commission

Some test for a commission I got recently. Still need some work. I don't have much time though. These are mock ups for the original paintings that will be around 7-12 ft in size. I have to make 4-5. Lots of work. I have to be really careful about what colors I use because the walls were they will be hung are vibrant green and orange. I KNOW!!! GREEN AND ORANGE?!!! Also, the site is a commercial building/business so I must make sure that the mood of the work is sensible and not wrist cutting material. Here's what I have thus far:






I know... still pretty dark. I like the top one. =)

what I love most of all about these is - your definite choices mixed with a looseness allowing the paint to work its magic too. love that you explore your way into these.

Your works are very expressive and beautiful. I especially love the paintings with the drips. They are exciting.

What ever happened with these Jon? Did you get the commission? Why do they look like?

Becky, there was some business issues that came up. Mostly, they didn't want to pay me what we agreed. I'll make the paintings as soon I get a bigger studio.
