Illustration Friday: Time


My submission for Illustration Friday's "Time" is a dimensional painting I made in 1992. The title of this piece is "Night Clawk" and it was hanging in a restaurant in Westwood, CA and a young man named Kirtland Washington came in and purchased it. It's cool how a painting is a part of the artist and then someone takes it home and it has it's very own life out in the world somewhere. I hope Kirtland still has it and enjoys it. I am close to finishing the Shoe House and will post it soon.

OMG! I LOVE this piece. I love all your pieces... but this one is just WOW.
I think it needed a little black kitty though. I love searching you pics for the little black kitty :)

Crazy...really like how this breaks the frame...This is one I would really like to see in person because while it looks 3D at the same time it doesn't if that makes sense...did you cut away a piece of the frame? Per the usual great light effects here to make it pop...

Clever title for this piece! And how did I know ( or feel) you'd be playing this song?

Dreamy! I'm such a fan of your buildings and houses. This is really awesome. And it was cool to imagine the hawk while listening to Pink Floyd, too.

Really beautiful! I just feel like back to night time each day to celebrate the essence of magical light that speaks so well here.
What a legend!

Krimo said...

Yes, I bet it's like losing a part of you when you sell a piece. I think I would want to know who bought my art (if I were an artist) just for that special connection.

Roberta said...

Oooh... I like the way it breaks the boundary with the roof top...

Imagine having a painting by Valgal on your wall ...well... you already know how that feels...hee hee!!

Hi Val,
Time has no control over our art, her continued to live long, very long time ...
Very good week.
