The background photo reference for this painting was in grays. I decided to make the background more blue to suggest ice and snow.

Kid's Stuff


 Click to Bid, 11 by 14 inches, Acrylic on acid free illustration board

This painting is somewhat self indulgent with images from my childhood. The background is applied with a water based tissue paper that bleeds when moistened. It is uncontrollable in some respect and that is why I like working with it. Generally my work is very controlled and I like the unpredictability of it.
