A new series I started this year and one of the longest so far (and still going.) It started with this painting while working at a friend’s studio. He is a sculptor and while I was there I had the chance to give a try at modeling on clay. I made a couple of small clay sculptures, the second one is what gave birth to this painting. I wasn’t intending for this, but one thing led to another. Anyway, I used the clay model to make this painting, which is unusual to me, because I don’t work that way, I mainly paint from imagination, but it was a good and different approach, something that I can add to my arsenal. The theme of these series is about a man or a woman being on worlds of their own, they can dress however they like, act however they like, there are no taboos, no rules, they are free to do as they please, they can even manage to design their worlds.
If you are interested I have art prints available of this painting and of the continuing series at my shop.
