Painting Narrative:
This painting is about the idea of a “Venus”, an object of unobtainable beauty. Venus could be the modern, brightly colored architecture, the statue of a woman across the river, or could simply be the landscape itself. The Dog is a idealized version of my 12 year old corgi, Tater.

Technical:
This Painting uses multiple kinds of perspective techniques including:
Chromatic perspective
Atmospheric perspective
Linear perspective
Multiple Spatial Planes

Primary pigments by color include:
(Green): cobalt green (pale, medium, dark) (Blue): lapis lazuli, cerulean blue (Red): permanent rose, alizarin crimson, royal purple lake, rose dore (Yellow): naples yellow genuine (light, dark), (Earth colors): raw sienna, raw ochre

Influences:
The "SpaceTime" series was influenced by Venetian Renaissance painting. The composition of "Venus with Dog" owes a nod to Giorgione's "Sleeping Venus"

Frequently Asked Questions

Custom and personalized orders

Giclee Prints are listed at 12"X12" but other sizes are available including 16"X16" and 24"X24"

How long does it take if I commission an original oil painting?

Original Oil Paintings can take 3-4 months to complete due the technical nature of laying the thin layers of paint, and the spatial complexities. You'll get weekly progress updates of your painting while it's being developed.

Where can I buy frames for the unframed Giclee Prints?

I'm working on a short video with suggestions for Frames. I just purchased 18" square frames from West Elm that worked out nicely. I'm ordering some custom mats to use with the frames.

One thing to keep in mind when choosing frames is that the print image is 12"X12" but the paper is larger, usually around 13" Square.

Frame sizes are generally the outside dimensions of the frame, not the inside dimensions that hold the paper.

Generally, for a classic 2" border (matted or floating), you want a frame that is at least 17" Square.

In the decor shot in the About section, the nickel frame with the gray backing is 17.5" square, and the black gallery frame is 18" square.
