Marigolds.



Ms. Mary Gold
9 x 10 in.
oil on board

Here is my contribution to the Autumn Society of Philadelphia show, DIA DE LOS MUERTOS, that opens this Friday at Proximity Gallery in Philly. My concept for this painting came from the belief that the marigolds are thought to attract the souls to these offerings. I used one of my favorite old photographs that I collect from flea markets for reference. The Photograph is of a victorian woman sitting in a field of flowers which I "brought to life" in my piece. The opening this friday is from 6-9 pm at Proximity Gallery in Fishtown, 2434 East Dauphin Street Philly Pa.

Also, had a nice little feature last week over at Illustrophile, check it out here.

It's been a little while....

Sorry for the lack of posts lately. I have a new piece to share today and a lot more over the next few weeks....

This painting was a bit experimental and I had a lot of fun playing around. Unfortunately this is not the best image of it. I finished it for a show that was put together at Triumph Brewery in old city Philadelphia. Since it required a lot of building up with layers, I didn't get to add as many as I wanted before the show, but when I get the piece back I'll continue to work on it and get a better image of it.
