“Composing” has always been one of my most special paintings. it captures a breif moment of my daughter ava at the piano singing along with her melodies while her fingers dance over the keys. I wanted to PURPOSEFULLY render the background in a fresh, lost-edged technique so as to pull the focus to the face and moving fingers. the area of the hands was particularly challenging and ENJOYABLE as they are painted entirely with no hard edges. This creates the effect of melody in motion.
in the spirit of the holiday season, im proud to announce that “Composing” will be released for 24-hours beginning tuesday, December 18th, 12pm (eastern standard time). 13x20" Archival Pigment Print
