bigger and with color

I'm thinking about making this as a 48" round oil pastel changing the flower color.

boat sketch

What I am planning for this at the moment is to build the piece out of 15 smaller framed pieces and assembled on a wall to get the full impact, I think the finished composition will measure 90" x 96" when installed and will most likely be screen printed with color pencil line drawing over it.

Panel Discussion 12/16/10

Defining the Sublime with the artwork of Jennifer Davis, Erika Olson Gross, Terrence Payne, & Joseph Siness

Is there a line to be drawn between fine art and design? Is one inherently more valuable to our culture than the other? Does the world of fine art have any influence over how you view your world and the media you view it through? Join the artists of Flourish and the panel of experts they have invited in exploring the answers to these and many other questions regarding the roles of artists and designers in the wild west of modern media today.

Guest panelists for the evening are:
+ Burlesque of North America Founder MIKE DAVIS
+ Space150 Associate Creative Director JASON STRONG
+ bd'm Art Buyer KIM WITCZAK

Each of them will be sharing his or her professional expertise and unique insights on the show. MAEP coordinator Christopher Atkins will moderate the panel and open up the discussion to the audience. Feel free to jump into conversation and bring along your questions!
