Creating 12 large paintings (approxomately 4 feet x 7 feet each) over a two year period. Currently 2 are done and the 3rd is unerway.
The project involves my creating 12 large oil paintings. Each will be aproximately 4 feet by 6 to 7 feet. Their subject matter is eclectic but all will be uniquely original, thought provoking, and humorous. The time frame for the completion of all 12 paintings is 2 years. Backers rewards will be available at that time, early in 2014.
Currently (March 2012) I have completed 2 of the 12 large paintings and the 3rd is under way. The first finished painting is "The Irreverent Rapture" which can be viewed at
http://honepie.com/tank.epic/IrreverentRapture.jpg . It illustrates the Rapture but in the opposite -- sinners rise into the heavens and the pious remain on the Earth. The 2nd is called "A Short History of Humanity from Beginning to the End," which can be viewed at http://honepie.com/tank.epic/HistHumanity.jpg . The 3rd, for which the compositional drawing has been finished is called water. The drawing can be viewed at http://mojoko.com/show12/HistWater_13.jpg . Future titles are "Custer's Last Stand," about the arrogance of a man who took over 200 people to their unnecessary deaths. "The History of Medicine." "Moonshine and Prohibition." "September 11, 2001." "The God Particle." "Creationism and Evolution." "War and the Art of Duck Hunting." "The Farm," based on a farm from my youth. "The Signing of the Declaration of Independence."
I work in my studio in Carbondale, Colorado. The money from my backer's is for materials, studio rental and living expenses for the 2 years it will take to finish all 12 paintings, each being roughly 4' x 6-7'.
