It has been three days since I began working on this monster. I still wish I could tack this humongous piece of canvas to the wall but I think it might be way too heavy. Still thinking of ways to suspend it once its completed but there's a lot I've begun to appreciate about this piece.
On the morning of the second day, I came into the studio giving myself the rest of the day to try to make it work before I scrapped it entirely. I brought out my acrylic rollers and began to apply white on areas I thought were too flat. The rollers created some awesome texture and those areas began to look like textured wallpaper. That just opened a new door for me. Considering the scale of the piece and the wall its going on, the idea of textured wallpaper made complete sense. The approach changed, and the movement of the thought is what fascinated me. Here is an image of the dream wall along with progress I've made on the piece. I can't seem to find the right angle to photograph the entire piece so there are quite a few close-ups. Note that once the piece is actually hung on the wall, its going to look completely different since I'm working on it flat on the floor at the moment. I'm sure there will be plenty of recomposing that will be required once I see it on the wall.
