I am happy to finally finish this triptych piece that I have been working on and off again for several months. In fact, I began this piece back in 2012 for my show at JRB and abandoned it due to a lack of time for some smaller pieces (the painting was 9 feet wide by 4 feet tall). At the time I scrapped the painting and used the setup I created for a small graphite drawing, "Glacier Getway." When the South Bend Museum of Art contacted me about doing a show this fall, primarily focusing on my landscape work, I knew it was time to pull it out and finish it.
I'm glad I did. Working this large allowed me to approach the constructed landscapes in a different way - more painterly with much more of a direct painting method.
Well, the piece is done and will be shown at my upcoming exhibition, "Small Vistas / Big Myths" opening at the South Bend Museum of Art on September 27th. See the finished piece below.
