“First Encounter”, the first painting in my alla prima series, “The Dark Tunnel”, which features rougher snap shots, foreshadowing Cherry’s encounters with antagonists in the Other World.
This painting features her first encounter with Creeper, the main villain depicted often in my work. His gestures are often grand, unconventional, and just plain creepy.
Alla prima, means to complete the painting in one sitting. These paintings feature larger brush strokes, and less detail than my usual fine art paintings. These paintings grace the windy and twisty hall of Cherry’s Closet, unknown to her of their meaning. They started to appear in my Cherry’s Closet painting, 2007. I plan to make this a focus in the future.
