Urethanes and acrylics

{I had been working on several paintings simultaneously the past four months. The difficulties are predictable regarding focus, concentration and exhaustion.

In anticipation of a show, I had ramped up my work schedule to 16-18 hour days, working seven days a week. This gave me the benefit of producing in a month paintings that would otherwise be produced in 3-4 months under normal working hours.}

This was a very relaxing piece to paint, especially in creating some of the more unusual lighting effects which were not in the original photos, but which kind of grew into form as I worked. There was literally nothing here that did not call for an extremely detailed and meticulous approach. These hyperreal effects are really quite subtle and create a view that does not actually exist, but one which makes its reality more apparent as a unique environment with an identity worth taking notice of.

take a look and see what you think.
