The painting titled “Trust,” my largest fine art painting to date, has been bought by the College of the Ozarks and is to be part of the Ralph Foster Museum permanent collection! Please stop by and visit it if you are ever in Branson Missouri!
This painting was indirectly inspired by Picasso, who used bits of magazines and news papers in his collage pieces. Since I prefer realism, I decided to use that technique in a multimedia piece featuring a subject I knew – puppies. What better to accompany news paper, than puppies? As for the arrangement, I wanted to capture the way that puppies sleep in a pile fitting into each other like puzzle pieces. It made an excellent bedroom decoration.
This painting is done in Latex house paint. I painted it in 2009 while at college. It is 4×5 feet in dimension. It will be purchased by the College of the Ozarks in Branson MO, and hung in the Ralph Foster Museum on Campus as of June 2012. This is my largest framed painting to date! I encourage you to visit it!
