“Seven Deadly Sins: Greed”
This is day 45 – HALF WAY! – of my 90 day challenge to make one new painting from life each day.
It’s also the third day of a series within the series that tells the story of the Seven Deadly Sins using my collection of stone eggs. Today we look at the sin of Greed.
One of the real pleasures of this project is the opportunity to paint a lot of different kind of objects I’ve never painted before. Unless I’m totally blanking on it, in my 20-some-odd years of painting, I’ve never put money in a piece. I had a great time with those stacks of coins, and I think it shows.
This video shows the whole process of making this painting – start to finish – about 4 hours of work condensed to less than 3 minutes.
