Update from BrianLeahyArt HQ: Working on a new painting. Here’s a couple sketches:
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.
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!
Started another painting on wood, about 5′ tall and 3.5′ wide. As of now it is called “In The Beginning We Lived Outside”. Check out that grain pattern. Danggg son. $12/sheet plywood at Home Depot…It may not be suitable for building anything, but it looks cool when you paint on it.
The title was inspired by a lyric from musical mastermind Valeska Gavotte‘s forthcoming release, Songs for Sinfonietta, which I am very excited to be designing the album art for. It’s shaping up to be pretty spooky and dark so far. Borderline metal. Br00tal.
