ANATOMY OF A PAINTING: MESPELBRUNN WATER CASTLE (REWORK) PART ONE.
My wife was learning to paint and had wanted to do an Art Fusion Project with me. Art Fusion is when two or more artists collaborate on and create a work of art together. The painting pictured above was the result of our efforts. I was never really satisfied with this particular painting and in truth there were a lot of parts about it that bothered me. Since my wife was not familiar with architecture I tried to guide her but to no avail.
When we divorced in 2018 I inherited the painting which is on a 24″ x 36″ Gallery Stretched Canvas. The painting sat in storage for a few years and in 2021 I decided to start a rework of the painting. Not to take anything from my ex-wife Debbie Peck because she has her own volume of solitary art that she has done. Some areas that my ex-wife did will remain and her contribution to the finished rework will be acknowledge as to not take anything from her.
This piece of art has my name attached to it and I am not happy with it. There are areas on it that I did that I was never really happy with either. I will rework the art into something I can be happy with. In this first part of a multi-part series I start on the rework of the painting. The series will follow the creation process as I do a complete rework of the painting. There will be strong focus on the parts I was not satisfied with.
