Speed


This week I decided to paint a color acrylic version of a running zebra copper etching that I made some years ago.

Acrylic paint and ink on a 10 by 8 inch board.

Is that zebra speedy enough to leap between moving subway trains? Amazing. I do love the b&w against your highly saturated colour. It's magic.

My, what an awesome use of colour and subject matter! I am fascinated by the wild animals in the city! I hope you do exhibits of your work so that the rest of the world can enjoy!

I thought this looked familiar! I think that etching was the first piece of yours I ever saw, and I was hooked right then and there. It looks great in color. I love the depth of the buildings and the incongruity of the zebra...this makes me think of Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? by Philip Dick. I wonder if I said that the first time... anyway, if you haven't read the book, people kept animals on their rooftops...it's a really great story from which Blade Runner was very loosely adapted.

Tried to comment this a.m. but Blogspot (or maybe my computer) was on the fritz.

There's that zebra, fresh from its bath and ready to take on the town. Intriguing how you put these animals in urban settings. Very cool. Wonderful.
