Fall is in the air, and that means it is time for the Annual Nestie Halloween Photoshoot and Charity Raffle. For the past 2 years I have donated a painting to support the chosen cause. This year's charity is MOAS (Migrant Offshore Aid Station).
So of course, this year will be no different. Last year I let the winner choose the color scheme and type of pod/flower she wanted. While I liked that concept, I am better at just creating than doing commissioned pieces.
I decided to keep with my current style--see the Map Series. I am really liking this style and the possibilities of color combinations I can create. I went a little bigger this time, working on a 20"X20" square canvas. As I was spreading out the crackle paste, I was wishing I had bought that large palette knife that looked like a cake icing spatula I saw when I was in Boston this summer at MassArt.
Anyway, I am super happy with the end result. I wanted something bright, yet soft. I think I captured what I pictured in my head completely. I hope the winner has a good place to hang it. I guess I should go buy some hardware for the back before Sunday. ;)
