Another Commissioned Painting


Working on a Painting for The New Tahoe Forest Cancer Center

Fall
48" x 30"

The cancer center is under construction in Truckee, CA.  As a state-of-the-art rural treatment center,  it will host patients and their families from a wide area in Northern California and Northern Nevada.  http://www.measurecprojects.com/cancer-center-needs.php

The Art Selection Committee contacted me and commissioned a painting that will be influenced and guided by my Sticks and Stones series of works, an example is shown above.   The completed work will represent balance, clarity, permanence, light, and  positivity.  



I began with black under painting on the canvas.  Then I lay on explosive color.  



After those dry, I over paint with a combination of two pigments and then score through the paint to allow some of the under paint to show through.  This gives the work a more interesting and textural visual, and it creates the background for the rock cairn.








You are invited to return later in the week to see the rock cairn as it begins to appear on the canvas.
