Corporate Commission in Progress: Coke

oil on canvas
30'' x 30"

Well I've been busy working on the second commissioned piece for about six days now. At this point I'm getting close to completing the first pass. I knew when I began this particular composition that the condensation was going to be a challenge. And . . . that has proven to be the case. I've been basically blocking in the position of the larger droplets, leaving the smaller ones to be added in later. When they are all in place, I'll get busy adding in the detail to each drop. Each drop. What was I thinking?! If I can get through this without going blind, it could turn out looking pretty cool.

Each subject you choose to represent in your art stand out with so much strenght & beauty. I feel more than a determined talent to paint details, there is passion and respect for the act of painting and the medium. I like the "black on black with red" and the centered composition in this amazing one.

That said, are you pleased with it? Looks good to me so far:)

It's hard to ignore those little nitty-gritty details sometimes. :) I think having some is good, as viewers really enjoy them though.

Anywho.. This looks wonderful! It makes me thirsty. :D

I'd love it if we could take a closer look at your palette and mixing area sometime.
