Again it's been a while since my last post here, and since this site is still generating a decent daily traffic it's probably time for an update...
Also I am getting ready to have an exhibit of my night series of paintings, monotypes, and photographs this coming January at The Stoneleigh-Burnham School.
I did work on an interesting little project for el Museo del Barrio exhibit, Nueva York
. As a subcontractor to The Small Corp
, I was asked to make a scale model of Frederic Church
's Heart of the Andes
in the original walnut tabernacle frame. The original frame was destroyed or lost long ago and the only documentation that exists are a few old grainy black and white photos.
The model is made of walnut and is 1" = 1' scale. We decided not to include the presidential portraits in the model. As much as I would have loved to paint the image, I had to be competitive and make some money on the project, so I used a high resolution digital print. The figure is in historically accurate dress and is for scale.
