Eternal Sunrise . 48x60 inches . 2009

Tuesday, September 22, 2009






1. natural lighting
2. artificial/interior lighting
3. combined uv and artificial lighting
4. uv lighting only
5. no light (glow in the dark)

Ingredients: acrylic, beach sand, crushed glass, phosphorescent pigments, varnish, water & light on canvas.

Ahhhh. Hello super ridiculously large painting. Nice to meet you.

Well, goodbye, rather, because I just shipped this piece off to Chicagoland today. Actually, it's kind of sad, I'd really grown used to the bright orange sunrise everyday. It was causing me to paint a wave of tealish blueish greenish paintings. Now my studio is totally unbalanced. And naked. Good thing I have a blank canvas the exact same size just waiting to be painted something colorful. Or maybe it will be dark and gray. Who knows.

This is the painting I was counting dots on. I counted every single dot. I won't be doing this again. I learned quickly that I can't listen to music and count simultaneously. And really, I prefer listening to music than counting 4,647 dots.

That's right. You heard me. This painting has 4,647 dots.

I wanted this piece to be extremely glowy. In the event that its owner doesn't get a blacklight to go with it (get one, Stephanie, get one) it should still light up the room after dark. (Get one, Stephanie, get one.)

Hope you like it. ;o)

    It's cool how there's hidden different colors you don't see in the "normal lighting". Really beautiful. :-)

    Amazing, yet again, Shayla!
    I'm still always in awe of the color changes from the lighting.
    Paint on talented one!
