"Living the Dream" is one of the latest paintings to come out of MADART Studios, and it's a biggy...5'x6'!! I painted this on the only oversized canvas I now use, the incomparable Genie Canvas. This is actually the largest single painting on canvas I've ever done, and it was a bit of a challenge, but so worth it to see the end product! I've painted multiple canvas paintings before and done murals, but working with one single canvas this size can turn you into a contortionist in no time, hahaha, and get a work out too!! There is just such satisfaction when working on a canvas this large and to see the blank white start to turn into something is exciting and exhilarating, I love it!!
I wanted to do a fun, tropical martini painting and mix in a little city skyline too, to create a painting that makes one dream of leaving the city and escaping to a tropical paradise, sitting back on the beach sipping cocktails and martinis from fresh coconuts...ahhhhhh....the dream.
Here are some work in progress photos to show you how it all came together. I will soon be trying my hand at taking some time lapse videos, so it will be even more fun to see the progress, I just have to get all the logistics of that figured out first, but stay tuned!!
