So I realize I have been behind on posts, but the next few should explain why, and hopefully give some imagery to chew on. Here are some process shots and construction concepts for the Artopia event, and cutout. The rough sketches were to help me understand how the seams, and wood construction would play out once the painting was completed. The progress shots are from the studio at Rackhouse, where folks love to see "the Dude" the owner purchased from me and where you can smell the aroma of world renowned Stranahan's Whiskey brewing. Rough sketch of easel was integrated into the cutout, and I will post more of the process as it pans out. The canvas on the easel will contain a fun interactive piece. More to come very soon.
