New (Big) Piece


I spoke a few posts ago about wanting to do a larger piece. For one, just because I'm looking for a bit of a challenge, and also because there is a spot on my wall that is empty. The piece is 24"x24"- not huge, but certainly larger than my normal stuff.

So what do you think? I'm still trying to decide myself. It's sort of a case of having looked at a piece for so long that I can't "see" it anymore, you know? It was definitely difficult-working larger requires so much more thought and work! Most of my imagery is smaller, so it takes a lot to fill a large space. But I'm happy with my balance of negative space and focal imagery. And I like the layered feel of the background quite a bit. And I really love the color palette... Hmmm, I guess it appears that I do like it, doesn't it?

My sister saw it and said, "What happens if you have another baby?". I remember a personalized Sesame Street piece we had when I was young that my mom had to take back in to have "re-personalized" when my youngest sister was born! I don't think that's an option with this one... oh well, if I have another baby at some point, I guess I'll just have to do a new piece!

This is Beautiful!! Lovely vibe to is, great colours and textures.

Of course you made this piece because of where you are NOW, not according to how many kids you might have in the future :)

I really love this larger piece. Yes, it is hard to work big when you have been used to working smaller:) I have a hard time doing that too! Love the colors, balance and textures. It goes without saying....I love the subject matter. I am all about family! Great piece.

Hi,
I think your piece is superb and will become more and more special as the years go by. What a lovely idea. The colours are serene and there is a wonderful flow to it. Your book popped up as something i may like on amazon - wow i cant wait to get it - congratulations its a great achievement. Your artwork seems to have a certain peace and serenity about it.

both new pieces are beautiful! Your work translates well on a bigger canvas. You've kept the serene, intimate feeling of your other work. I hope you do well with your selling.
