The Evolution of "Chaos - in Color!" the Grand Finale

Here is the grand finale last version of "Chaos - in Color!" as taken by my digital camera at home.

I have had it scanned professionally and reproduced in a number of high quality formats, including canvas giclee and fine art paper. I have a number in stock, and can easily get more made with extra time.

If you want the canvas giclee option, first choose the size you want, either the original 16" by 20" or a smaller 8" by 10" size.

Then decide if you want it on flat canvas to frame yourself, or
gallery wrapped on a wooden frame (this is how I paint my originals).

The bonus of being on flat canvas is being easy to mail in a tube.

The cool thing with gallery wrapped is that the painting extends around the sides of the canvas-wrapped frame, so further framing is optional.

And finally, a more affordable option for the budget minded is an
8" by 10" on fine art paper.

The Evolution of "Chaos - in Color!" part five

We're getting closer to completion! Can you hear the drum roll and feel the excitement??

It has been a challenge for me to learn more and better ways to navigate blogspot, especially in posting multiple photos, placement of photo above or below text, getting the right number of lines between paragraphs, learning just a tad bit of html code, and where I can go past that and use the wysiwyg (what you see is what you get) method! Whew!

And that's a good method for us creative types who prefer less time spent on technical things!! (Where's my paint brush!?!)

The evolution of "Chaos - in color!" part four

If you liked part three better than this one, part four, then you can see the potential dilemma of any artist in knowing when a painting is done - and the sometimes feeling of, "Oh no! I might have overworked it."

I experienced this several times in the process of working on this one, and yet, a few days after I had the panic, I felt more reconciled to the new version. Some earlier versions I quite like, and if I could go back, I might keep one particular effect, and not keep some other effect.

In the end, it's like the forks in the road of life - you have to choose one, and even if you go back and try the other, it's never like going back in time and taking it from there. You're always in the now!

Wow, getting philosophical here - easy for me to do.... Too much fun!

The evolution of "Chaos - in color!" part three

If you've ever wondered what it would look like to see a painting earlier in its development, here's the third one in this series of my most recent painting, "Chaos - in Color!"

See if you can identify the subtle changes from one photo to the next.

The Evolution of "Chaos in Color!" part two

I thought it might be fun and novel to let you see a series of one painting as it progresses from first broad stroke to each continuing level of development.

Your comments are always greatly appreciated!

How do you like the look of this first draft of "Chaos, in Color!" ?

I know, I know! You won't have the answer until you see the final version.

Keeping you in suspense a short while longer - this is sherybrownart over and out...!
