ART OF THE DAY


GENEVA  48in. x 84in  Acrylic on canvas  2009

So this has been on my studio wall for the past 8 months and I've worked on it, hated it, ignored it, took it down, put it back up, worked on it a bit more and then tried to pretend it didn't exist... it was an exercise in patience and discipline among other things. I'm glad it's done. it was like having a baby. a lot of labour, tears, barfing, drama, wine, pouting, grunmbling, --all of it... I think this image is a little too light and one certainly can't see all the detail at this size. 4ft. x. 7ft. can be a bit much ( ok a lot much). I've got a 10ft. x 4ft. coming up in the pipe but it'll be on two panels.

GENEVA?  Had thought about calling it BREAKER BREAKER or MOUNTAIN FOLK or SUSHI TIME. all fairly self-explanitory, I think. It reminded me of international flavours and I thought of NATO and GENEVA.. blah blah blah....

anyway feedback appreciated - good or bad.
