Sketches and Strange Ideas
This page is for concepts and ideas and weird experiments.
Birth of Venus adapted
Ok, I know- but it's Vegas! Other idea I had but didn't try (yet) is one based on MIchelangelo's Adam touching the hand of God, but with maybe a lobster touching the "hand" or a crawfish or something.
This would be pretty fun to paint, and in oil paint, very iconic and have a lot of depth that is hard to approximate in watercolor.
** for private dining room
Waves in Blue and Green
I would work more on the composition of the wave, fish etc. but you get the idea. Also could be lighter with less contrast (like the mural at Sushi).
Chalkboard sketch 2
chalkboard sketch 1
final would be in full color I assume. (Not sure of what the writing would be, categories, etc.)
Langoustine or crawfish portrait, for corridor space. I used some gold paint in this watercolor, which looked nice against the red.
Rabbit with Vegetables
This is another idea for the corridor space.
Octopus sampling oysters
I was thinking of a more length-wise version of this for the corridor space. Could be without names of oysters.
This idea could be formatted for the dining room or corridor space too (just making it longer and add more oysters). Do you remember the little oyster painting in the ornate frame at Sullivan a long time ago? I'd do it like that, detailed and rich.
An idea based on Edward Hicks painting of the peaceable kingdom. Maybe too much whimsy?
PIg and Sheep
Ok, I think I'm getting too whimsical, but I'll leave this in the collection to show you I'm thinking of every angle.
Oysters on a blue background
This was a small painting which was at Sullivan street for a while. I could do something like this large scale; also if I did one giant single oyster, this gives more of a sense of how cool it would look in oil.
