The Big Reveal (36" x 36")
The Big Reveal (oil, acrylic, and gold metallic paints)
36" x 36" oil and acrylic with gold metallic on gallery wrapped canvas
I watch a lot of home renovation shows. I’ve seen a castle restored in France, a hotel in the Bahamas brought back to life, a townhome in Chicago redone, and the list goes on and on. These are my bedtime shows; guaranteed no violence. My favorite part of every one of these programs is the big reveal at the end of each episode (if I'm still awake!).
When I began work on this painting, I went in one creative direction adding layers and layers of paint. As I worked, I wasn't getting exactly what I had in mind—that is, until I started scraping paint off of the canvas. The more I scraped, the more I liked what was being revealed below.
The result? This painting which, naturally, I've titled The Big Reveal!
