After I found a suitable home the assemblage started to take on a life of it's own. I originally wanted to use an old wooden and metal milk bottle holder from a local dairy from back (way back) in the day but this piece pretty much has to hang and the sides were too rotten to be able to screw anything into, still I liked the general look. Tried an old Pepsi crate I had but it was too narrow. In the end I found this box which works great.
The hardest part is attaching the babies but I figured out a way, I still need to add one more support in the back of one of them Today I will deal with the empty space on the bottom and they will be mostly done. Swing by my show next weekend and see how they turned out! Core New Art Space, 900 Santa Fe Dr, Denver.
Cerberus is moving forward. I wish there were more hours in the day. Sometimes I get very involved with something and loathe to quit it, this piece is one of those pieces. I can hardly wait for the holiday to wind down so I can work on it some more.
the background is coming along after I finish the dog I will go back and refine it sometimes ideas just present themselves, personally if I were a dog from hell and spent all my time guarding the gates to hell I would like my trusty ball. If I had 3 heads then I'd want 3 balls. Is that wrong? Time to work on Cerberus.
I have been thinking about this idea for some time and finally I am at the point where I can finally do it. It's Cerberus the three headed dog, guardian of Hell. Took me a while to draw this out but with the help of my animal anatomy book and some snarling dog pictures I finally got it done. I want the same atmosphere as my lil' red picture so I'm using a chromatic black because of the richness and depth it creates.
I have had this adorable paint by number puppy canvas for a while now and I finally found the perfect place for him. I contrasted it with photos and letters from WWI finishing with a broken number two from an old gas station sign.
