Painting by James Nares
JP and I took a trip to Vegas a couple of weeks ago. It was my first time - what a crazy place! I'm definitely glad I got to experience it. Everything about it is loud and in your face. Including the above painting that I discovered in the lobby of the hotel Aria. I was memorized by it. I love the large brush strokes and brilliant color. I did a little research and the artist, James Nares, paints by suspending himself over the canvases hooked up to a harness - click here to get a visual - its pretty amazing!
The other day I stumbled upon this photo pf SJP in a gorgeous Prabal Gurung spring 2012 frock. I kind of gasped when I saw it because it reminded me so much of the painting I've been lusting over since Vegas.
I'm wondering if I can try to create a similar painting...
