“You can wake up now, the universe has ended.” – Jim Stark, Rebel Without a Cause, 1955

March 9, 2014

An assignment in the current painting class I’m taking – one I enjoyed in fact. I have to state up front that I didn’t actually draw the image, I transferred it onto the canvas from a photocopy of a photo of James Dean. But I did have fun playing with oil paint again. And the pervasive smell of linseed oil that still lingers. Below that is another little image resulting from a little playing with a new medium – Liquid Pencil. I quite like the text of the book page as a background and am trying to create something a little larger like that.
