Tomorrow Is The Day!
The commissioned gallery wall goes up tomorrow. All of the work is complete, finished this afternoon with the Pineapple painting, the last work.
The new owners play games and have a special talent at Scrabble. With the request that a pineapple painting be included on the wall and my knowledge of their love of games, this is what and how it came together:
The pineapple is a symbol of welcome and hospitality, so I chose letters from: Pineapple, Welcome, To, Home, and the owner's name to place on the canvas in a scrabble game appearance.
Some of the palette from the other paintings combined for this work.
I layered on pigment and carved through it to give additional dimension to the painting.
And the pineapple? Well, it's just a pineapple.
