Below is my new piece, "Fallen", that will be on exhibit this Wednesday, July 10th at Lyons Wier Gallery for their Summer Group Show. This piece was especially challenging, not least because I had only a little over three weeks to shoot, paint, varnish, pack, and ship it to NYC. I spent a solid week painting 8-14 hrs a day before I moved onto detail work and glazing, which freed up a bit of time to take care of my cat, and get a little sleep. The process is incredibly stressful, but I am almost always happy with the outcome when I work like this -- if I could afford it (both financially and mental health), i'd spend all my time under deadlines. enjoy! nagel-fallen-web
