My Big Project

I am embarrassed to say how long I have been working on this project for some very nice folks with a house in Hawai'i Kai on Oahu. But now it is percolating along although never as quickly as I anticipate. Since it is so large (7' tall vertical panels) I am creating it to scale directly on the canvases. I never feel that small mock-ups give me the same sense of placement and space as just doing it on the final format. So it is a process of incremental change.

The disparate shapes are a result of the wall areas. The horizontal one goes over a fireplace. The yellow and cream areas will be covered in a pale gold reflective acrylic paint, giving them an orientalist art-deco feeling.
