The Stricken Oak

O.K. Sorry I have'nt posted in a while, but work's been crazy bz. But we had a Movie poster theme art show at Fox. This was my movie poster for Frankenstein. More of a teaser poster actually. In the story, there's an Oak tree in the Dr.'s courtyard. It gets struck by lightning and is split and burned. The Dr. realizes that lightning will power the creature. He often stares at the the blasted oak as a symbolic reminder of how his life has been broken.
Anyways, the show was a great opportunity to bust out the oils again. The piece was very well recieved. Thanks and congrats to Cyndi who dropped the highest bid and scored this baby. Thanks to Toby also for an awesome frame. This one sparked another new painting, coming soon. Peace.
Happy holidays everyone.

That is a sweet piece. I wonder how it would look if it were to have the poster text on it. I would definitely want this as a poster!

Ominous! Great colors and cinematic as hell. I recently tried my hand at painting a large tree plein air style and it was really tough. I'll have to post my paintings soon to share.

Good to see an update to the blog. It's super hard to keep consistent right? I'll tell you what - post more and I will too. DEAL

Great seeing you and your family at the wedding! HAPPY NEW YEAR
