APRIL IS TODAYS MONTH

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!
