I recently painted this 34x41 acrylic painting to raffle off to benefit a truck driver who is being treated for cancer.
This guy had drove for me years ago and is a pretty good friend so it wasn't too difficult to come up with ideas for this image. Of course I would use his truck to connect him, an eagle where he is native. The landscape I chose was Mt Katahdin, in this area of Maine it is a major landmark and would make a connection with the area.
I spent about a week pondering worrying and planning until finally the canvas was ready and late one night I decided go for it. The next morning the painting was complete.
I had the idea of what to add but no real defined plan, once the paint hit the canvas it worked itself out.
The painting was raffled and was a complete success, the winner chose to give the painting back to Max which I was happy about.

Spotted this barn a few months ago and finally found the right time to go and do some photos. Didn't get all I wanted -the blackflies were too hungry and I didn't have my allergy medication.
There's so many interesting images at this location I will have to go up again.

Couldn't get a photo pit pass to this show, which meant I couldn't take my SLR. Had to made due with my little camera which drove me crazy but did catch some good shots. Seether was difficult because of their lighting.
