Monte I, acrylic on canvas, 35"x40", 2023
This is the first large scale painting of the Monte series. It was commissioned by the collector to put in her living room. After mocking it up with different formats, we landed on this one and I got the reference photo for the painting approved.
The reference photo was taken in Boca Chica, Chiriquí, by myself.
The collector requested the painting not be as dark as the reference photo, and a toucan be added. I do not paint fantasy settings but made an exception for this special collector and added the toucan in a size and location that would not compete for attention with the other elements in the painting.
