The horizon is green....

Inspired by a brief but thoroughly enjoyable and unexpectedly warm February morning in El Parque del Buen Retiro in Madrid. It is truly a wonderful park and provided me with the opportunity to continue to investigate the use of flock in my work.


Something new I have in development which is a continued investigation of last year's "Something for Everyone" ....

This shot is right after I put a base coat on the piece. Ultimately everything will be covered in flock. I used Montana colors Pistachio green, Avocado green and Lutecia green, graciously provided by my neighbor, artist Aleix Gordo Hostau. The next steps will involve the application of the flock in a similar fashion that you might find on a model train set.
