Cupid 4U2day encore

Hi All,

Here is the twin of the painting I posted yesterday. It was part of a showing of 'Erotic Art' at the G Becker Gallery, Ottawa, Canada.

I put some black and white undercoating on the two 36'' x 24'' x 1/2'' canvases that I mentioned in yesterday's blog entry. It was late in the evening by the time I got around to removing the plastic covering from the canvases. I decided to paint with the canvases side by side with the 24'' edges almost touching. This will make a 72'' x 24'' x 1/2'' painting if all works out well or I will have two 36'' x 24'' x 1/2'' pieces. Working on more than one painting simultaneously poses no problem. I like making a series like this. Sometimes I will paint ten to twenty paintings at a time. We shall see in what direction the current pieces go.

I enjoy doing digital art. Sometimes I will mess around digitally with a painting I have made with canvas and paint. Here is one such experiment I made with today's painting.

Digital art is satisfying as you can alter the image with a click, go back, save and alter and save again. It holds surprises. Below is another playful experiment unrelated to today's painting. It began with a photo of moi and then morphed. Perhaps it is one of my alter-egos, one of my wizard helpers, a radiant Celtic spirit.

I hope you are still holding your breath for the triptych images I promised. Those three paintings now lean against a wall in my studio apartment. Other things like house cleaning, x-rays and Stargate got in the way of my shooting some pics yesterday.

Today's painting is not yet posted in my Auctiva Store.
