I'm excited to announce that my artwork "Stargazer" has been selected for the prestigious Mountain Oyster Art Show 2023! It's an incredible honor, and I'm thrilled to be part of this renowned Western art event. This is the 54th Annual Contemporary Western Art Show and Sale hosted by the Mountain Oyster Club. The opening weekend will be November 17-19th, at the historic Pond Mansion in Tucson, AZ, home to the Mountain Oyster Club.
The Story Behind "Stargazer”
"Stargazer" is more than just a portrait. It’s an expiration of color and light. The inspiration for this piece came from a photo I took at the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum in Tucson, AZ, the same city where the Mountain Oyster Club is located. While capturing this moment, I decided to play around with exposure. Even though the photo was taken mid-day, I decided to underexpose the image to create a shadowy effect. Utilizing a "correctly" exposed photo and an underexposed photo, along with a healthy dose of imagination, this painting emerged.
