On the Easel
Many of you Storm King Junkies may know this athlete. Still a WIP (work in progress). But so excited to have the opportunity to channel one of my favorite artists again. Teresa Elliott has made mud a compelling subject in the fine art world. A new friend friend gave me permission to paint her son’s portrait from a recent Spartan Run. i’ve always loved a good challenge, Survivor is one of my favorite shows, I cry watching the Olympics and have fallen in love with crossfitting. Seeing the cross between the joy and determination on his face and knowing the deep strength and endurance it takes to complete a challenge like this, inspires me to no end!
My initial intent was to paint in the style of Teresa Elliott (Like I did of her painting High Noon ) but I am loving the direction its going. So we’ll see it may just be inspired by her muddy works.
I would like to finish before we leave for Arizona but packing is getting in the way.
