APRIL IS TODAYS MONTH

Wednesday, April 9th, 2014

Update from BrianLeahyArt HQWorking on a new painting. Here’s a couple sketches:

new piece sketch

new piece sketch 4

Color scheme not final. You can see the wall of windows well here.

new piece footprints

TO THE SUMMITTTTTT

The painting is going to be as big as the last one (“Pile Of Ship”) aka 4 x 6′ on wood. The basic idea is a mountain peak with footprints to the summit visible. In the background a sun looms larger than life. But the whole scene is viewed through a wall of randomly stacked windows.

I am experimenting with using tape to block off segments of the painting, leaving clean wood visible. Just finished a trial smaller example of the tape part, seen below.

No worries, it only took 4 hours! Ha! Ha. Ugh.

This one’ll be done in time for my summer residency at the unparalleled most excellent TWIG SALON on Pearl St. here in lovely BOULDER COLORADO. Stay tuned friends!

Did I trick you with that headline? I don’t know if that’s ever gonna happen but we gotta dream right? Yes we do. Anyways this post is not really about that. Altho I truly wish it was.

Brian Leahy Art wants to tell you about the band its in.

“Um, our band is called W Summon. We’re named after that piece of materia from Final Fantasy VII that lets you cast the attached spell twice in a row. Awesome”

We’ve been playing monthly at the No Name Bar on the Hill in Boulder, CO

Our next show there is May 3 @ 10 PM

Look for us to start playing in Denver this summer.

Been carting some paintings over there for the shows…here you can see “Greater Than / Less Than” in the background. Ugh. Hipsters.
