commission for lynn

September 12, 2018

I have always been intrigued by the physicality of our bodies while making art. I have known artists who must be sprawled on the floor, atop a mound of their scraps and brushes. I have known others who hunch over their little masterpieces at a desk, on the bank of a river, in their truck or in their favourite coffee shop. I have known artists who truly use their entire body and being, the strokes direct reflections of their full body movements. I have explored some of these physical shapes myself, observing and trying to find what works for me.

 

 This commission has been an interesting one. I don’t know the first thing about moose (meese?) or hunting them, but in the last few weeks I have learned more about the animal than I would have ever imagined. The physical positions I have had to take on in order to paint a clear, solid line have been interesting to say the least. Resting my head, my spine, my arm on the soft curves of the bone. I feel more confident than ever that these animals are so incredibly special and have a sort of magic to them. A year ago, 6 months ago, I would have never painted - or thought I could paint - on something as massive and precious as this lovely beast. I am so grateful to the client for placing this opportunity in my lap. And of course, to the bride and groom who are receiving this piece as a surprise, I love love and I am so grateful to have been a small pebble on your long and happy path.

Also. How many times was I told I had a nice rack walking down Baker Street with these antlers today? Too many.
