I will be away from my computer all day tomorrow so I decided to go ahead and post today. I hope everyone has a splendid weekend!
This plate was an experiment more or less with an idea I had of layering images on top of one another simply by watering down the paint more and more with each new layer.
I was experimenting with some new paint and playing with some new techniques and I ended up with a really cool looking weathered blue background. I put it down for a while not knowing what I would actually put on it and I really liked the blue so I wanted to preserve it as much as possible and the more I looked at it the more it began to look like a pair of blue jeans. Thus, the idea came about to paint a back pocket to a pair of blue jeans.
The first is the final plate I painted for the show I did last year called “The day the music died”. The second, someone gave me a motorcycle plate and I’ve always been fascinated by the artwork you find on the Ace of Spades so I made my own. And no, I have no intention of making a whole deck.
Another one I did for a show last year. Of all the plates I painted in the series for the show this was by far the one I most enjoyed painting
