This piece called 'FIRE AND LIGHT' is a special one for me! It was painted early last year, I was playing around with different techniques and painting abstract landscapes. While setting up to paint I was listening to some music on youtube, what can i say, it was before DTube :) anyway half way through what i think is a fan made video, there were images of space, star systems and all sorts of cosmic art. Soon as i saw it, I had to try paint it! Below is the photo i took at that moment, it is also what i used as the reference.

Any fans of Maynard James Keenan out there? As you can see from the photo I was in the middle of a Puscifer playlist, anything by MJK can often be heard in the studio.

Mixing paint can take me hours on something this big. This piece is 120 x 60cm canvas.

Here it is it the works, this technique takes a load of paint!! This piece used over a Litre!! It is an acrylic mixed with a bit of water and some retarding medium.

This was the first pic i took soon as it was finished. (sexy socks and all, haha) This piece was a mission! It took over 10 hours start to finish.

And here is a shot of 'FIRE AND LIGHT' hanging in The Makery on Oxford st, Sydney Mid last year.

Would love to hear what you think.
