Working on a commission piece....

Pier Commission  24" x 96" (diptych)  Mixed media and oil on wood panels

I've almost finished my fourth commission painting this year.

This one is long - made of eight seperately developed wood panels fixed together to "build" a pier structure. Layers of posters and color are applied to each panel before the lines of the repeated architectural module are added. When the work is finished glimpses of the collage beneath will be visible between and behind the final layers of paint. 

The photo above shows me applying the water and reflections by "stamping" oil paint onto the panels using narrow pieces of wood.
