Idea to Image: Family Portrait Series
Images from my studio of the mini family portrait series I created, especially for mine and Steven's exhibition at Rey Garza Real Estate. These canvases are gallery wrapped (1" deep), ranging in size from 6 x 6" to 12 x 12". The backgrounds were built up in layers of both opaque and transparent colors using alternative stencil techniques. The budgie drawings have been in my sketchbook for about a year, waiting on the right project. Finally, on Mother's Day (with a deadline looming), I realized how to incorporate the images. Inspired by our friends that recently welcomed new additions, I arranged families of birds within the colorful, patterned scenes. Contact me for details on commissioning your own 'family portrait.'
