You find the coolest sites, Casey! I just had to give it a try.
Take care.

Alyson Stanfield linked it my way via my artist's group.

Ohhh this is sooo kewl Casey! I saw it on Philip's blog once I believe. I couldn't figure out how to save what I used or something. I can't remember that far back. Anyway, very kewl Casey! :)

Meg said...

Heheh cool. I wonder how many pastel sticks it would take to make one that big?

Casey Klahn said...

For you non-nerds, what I did was go to dump'r, upload a picture, click on one "gallery" image, and after the load, I cut and pasted the HTML that they gave me right in the body of the post. Preview it, and there it is.
Jumbo sticks from Sennelier! That's what you use. With glass, though, it's just too big and heavy.

Casey - so beautiful, it brought a tear to my eye. Both these pictures are amazing BIG - I'm thinking you should perhaps be thinking what you could do about that!

Thoughts of oil paint did dance in my head. I haven't got the technical skill in oil , yet, but I never let that stop me before.
I do have a feeling that my pastel work has given me a set of compositional tools that would transfer well to large canvas.
I do have the large studio space (its called a barn).
Glad you liked this, Robyn!

These just look fantastic on this scale Casey! It was a good idea to show this idea! I am totally impressed.

Go for it: size, oil, the works. This proves you are more that ready!

I appreciate the kudos, Philip. What holds me back are a number of questions. Do I consider oil to be a cash cow medium? I mean, it would be wrong to go there for commercial reasons. Big scale is another thing I doubt. Would I just do it for commercial reasons? To me, the intimacy that Rothko wanted by going big, is also present in small sizes.
BTW, I do have 3 works that are 40" x @32" in pastel. Although, I think one has to be over 100 cm to be considered large scale. What do you people think is large scale in a 2D artwork?
