The reference for this painting was taken by Shauna Flath. We talked about a commission but just couldn't get our schedules to line up so she sent my a few photos with permission to use them. This painting is a small portion of one of her photos. I could not paint the size she was looking for as I did not have the canvas and couldn't order one at that time. This is a very textural painting with the under layer having words cut out of magazines and other sources that had a lot of meaning for me. I then painted over top basically ignoring the textures. It's unfortunate that photos flatten everything out. Right now I am enjoying this painting on my wall but due to space issues have reluctantly put it under the Landscape tab on this website for sale.
