This painting, Girl in the Purple Boots II, is typical of how I work these days. Like the earlier version, Girl in the Purple Boots I, the painting is based on a mash-up of several photos taken around the same time at the same location. In the case of the Purple Boots paintings, the photos were taken in Manhattan.
I am doing the same thing with my Playhouse Square series. By ‘same thing’ I mean make paintings based on photos taken at the same location. I’ve taken a lot of photos over many sessions at Cleveland’s Playhouse Square.
Behind Girl in the Purple Boots II, you can see the beginning of a painting titled The Press.
Girl in the Purple Boots II is 44″ x 60.”
