GoatGazing, started with a dream
Did some research on constellations - Capricornus the Goat Fish
Made composite in the computer
Sketched in pencil on primed wood panel
Created the under-painting in my studio
Added the wallpaper strips and took the piece to NY State
Worked in a cabin by the lake for a week
Infused much color and texture
Detail, the nose with hand written letters sent to me for collage
Finished up in the studio back in FL with the addition of fish
Fish? Yes, the Goat Fish, Capricornus, he needed the fish and I had the fish. They are Gyotaku prints that are made for me by an amazing artist Chuck Seaman in Key West, FL. I enjoyed using them so much (he works on rice paper, hence the translucent property over the wallpaper strips) I've asked him to make me some BIG ONES so that I can do something even more bold.
Hand written letters? Yes, please be a part of my letter writing campaign!
Thank you for being a part of my art journey
