The Being Above a Sea of Mist (After Friedrich), acrylic on panel, 40″x30″, 2014

This is my final piece for my solo show at BeepBeep Gallery in Atlanta in October. It’s based off of one of my favorite Caspar David Friedrich pieces, Wanderer Above the Sea of Fog. The photo came out much darker than the actual painting, but that’s what I get for painting in greys and blacks all the time. I will be leaving on an extended hiking excursion out west for the next few months. I’ll be updating my photo blog during my trip. Adios!

I’ve got one more large piece to finish today, and then I’m done with the paintings for my show at the end of October. Until then, I will be updating my photo/travel blog
NO LONELY ROADS.

The photo lab I take my paintings to has been having trouble getting a proper scan of my darker pieces, this one in particular. I’ve included a detail so you can see a little more of what’s going on within the branches of the tree.

Working on this big homage to Caspar David Friedrich’s The Wanderer above a Sea of Mist. I have two weeks to finish this and one other big tower piece before I disappear into the desert for a few months.
