12"x 9" Oil on gessoed board.Click on images to enlarge.
This painting is about four times the size I'm accustomed to painting and now I'm not sure what to do with it. It has been suggested that I begin painting some larger works like this to hold back for something in the future. If that would be a show somewhere, or just developing a "body" of work for a gallery presentation, I'm not sure if this painting would be appropriate. I have so much to learn!!!! I'm just tempted to list it on ebay with the rest....... but I've always thought I'd just stay with the smaller formats ( 5x7, 6x6, 6x8 ) for ebay. Hummmm , any thoughts?
You must think... LARGE ? 12x9 is not large! It is for me! LOL My thoughts were, "what am I going to do with all this room around the bottle?" The spot of light on the right was created to give some relief to all that darkness, but I was very happy with the visual effect of the bottle emerging from the dark background. By the way, I'd never eat this at midnight! I'd never get back to sleep after this snack!
