“Sunny Side Egg Peyote Eyes” Painting…. in stages

BLOG ENTRY Dec. 29, 2014. Finally finished this piece. “Untitled”
this painting has been through a lot of phases…. and has overseen a good amount of hardship in my personal life, so I feel that the ingredients for this piece are very unique. From it’s inception, it was originally planned to be painted on a wall in Miami’s Art District, but after dealing with the politics and bureaucracy, the wall was literally given to an amateur and didn’t last more than 3 months before it was destroyed by locals, a few yrs later the wall looks like trash. So after returning to NY that December I came home with the original sketch. I decided to put the energy of it onto a canvas 5 ft tall x 4 ft wide. Along the way I made some changes to it’s content, at first my plan was to put a mermaid on a wrecked pirate ship on the top. Then there was a period where I painted a very surreal portrait of someone specific representing the mermaid, but after weeks of seeing it, it became more of a painful reminder instead of a homage or a promise… I walked away from the painting again for a few months unsure what to do… eventually I made the decision to cover it completely with something else, as well as removing one of the birds that turned into another subject completely, and again the Baboon’s face in the shadow changed from it’s original version seen in the original sketch above….
All in all, I’m very happy to have this completed, it started to become a thing where I could just sit for whole nights just doing detail… It needed to be finished and I think my plan mentally was to “wrap it up by the end of the year” and have a kind of closure mentally for everything that this painting has been through for me. A lot of pain…. I am however very happy to be able to share it finally in it’s completion.
blood, sweat, stress, and even tears are ingredients in this mixed media final result… I don’t actually have a name for it yet, maybe one of you can help….
