I painted the following image for a video project this morning -only it was cut from the line-up. So this is quite literally the only venue for it now. The goal was to create a nighttime sky where stars and anomalies were visible yet not over-the-top in terms of intensity or quantity. Or in other words: Believable.
One of 14 pieces created recently for an art show at Pub 43 in Grand Rapids, MI.

The above is 1 of 5 scenes pulled from a recent project. And unlike a typical scenario, where a scene is pulled at the rough stage, these scenes were pulled after coloring. So why were they pulled? Interesting enough, it had nothing to do with quality or content but instead the deliverable date. Due to a shift in the timeline it became imperative to shorten the overall deck (aka “presentation”). The results being this along with 5 other “establishing shots” being pulled. So sometimes pulled work is simply a matter of having a deliverable scaled back.
And special “thank you” to the team for allowing this scene to be shared here!
