Nightmare


I deleted my regular blog last week, so I'll post the piece I just completed here. It is a 20 x 26" acrylic, to be used on a poster that shows how trees enhance a community. For the sake of discussion, and to tie in to this month's theme, let's call it "The Nightmare on Elm Street."

Thats beautiful, I could see it as a wonderful puzzle.

What a great piece. I love the way it is in a kind of layered flat perspective, making it so easy to see everything. My eyes zig zag through the whole scene. You can tell the trees are important in the image too, and it looks like you enjoyed creating them.

My street used to have front gardens full of lovely trees... but then people started to pave them over for car parking space! Very sad.

Thanks. With sketches, revisions, transferring and painting, I figure I have at least 80 hours in this--totally nuts, particularly given the budget. The non-profit client's list of requested elements was insane, and it felt like the never-ending project; hence the "nightmare" title. In better years, similar projects have earned me 2-4 times as much. Sigh.
