A few things from Parts ALLknowning…
“The person who risks nothing, does nothing, has nothing, is nothing and becomes nothing. He may avoid suffering and sorrow, but he simply cannot learn and feel and grow and love and live.”–Buscaglia
Hello, everyone. Thinking positive that all is super in your lives. If not, look in the mirror. Both the problem and solution can be found there.
Several of you have asked about the Ultimate Warrior Figure Portrait I mentioned I was going to do. Here are some pics. (Small images are linked to larger ones in their own browser windows.) It’s coming along super. True to my Warrior style: Oil. Knife. Thick. Bold. Intense. I spare nothing when I paint. I use gobs and chunks of sticky, gooey oil paint. I use only a knife to put it on. I use force and energy and creativity when I apply it. I give all I have and leave all I have to give on the canvas.
I’ve got some other commission stuff going on right now and the Annual Santa Fe Indian Market is coming up in a week and half, so I’ve been busy in the studio. I wanted to get this UW Figure Portrait to a certain stage before I posted any pics. It’s already one-of-a-kind awesome and will really be killer once complete and refined.
As I previously told you, I ‘m doing this Ultimate Warrior work on a 24×36 canvas and then will decide whether to do a larger work, 42 x 72, something like that, something near life-size.
About this piece…I’ve come up with an idea. Since it is my first Ultimate Warrior Figure Portrait and there was much encouragement from you that I undertake one, and much interest since knowing I was, I’m going to set a pre-finished price to it, like how sculptors do precast sales where you can get in at 50% off the finished piece price. The first person to offer and pay $1900 ($75 s/h) gets it. After I complete it, the finished price will be $3800. Send me an email if you want it. First come, first serve. As you can already tell from the pics, it’s going to be really something else when it is done — and it is my very first UW work, so It will definitely be a collector’s piece. If you have concerns about the face not being done yet, let me tell you I always do the face last on all my figurative work and I’ve never failed to bring out the soul of the person. Surely, I won’t fail on the unique one I created.
By the way, I am available to do commissions on other works, either Ultimate Warrior images you want (close up or action shots) or personal portraits which I enjoy and have already completed several commissioned works.
