#26 The Fallen Astronaut, by Eric Wayne [20″x30″ @300 dpi. 4/20/017]
If you watched my video about the first 25 images in the series, you’d know that I promised this one was going to be different from all of those. This one combines several techniques I’ve developed over the years and in this series. Notice that it is balanced between opposites: figurative and abstraction; digital and painterly; spontaneous and controlled.

I really love how suggestive this is without actually being anything representational. You may see heads and whatnot. There’s a healthy dose of Van Gogh, Bacon, and Auerbach in there, which isn’t unusual for me.

It looks a lot like spray paintings I used to do when I was 18-19.  I dig this style. Check out the close-ups.

Thanks for checking out my art and my blog. And if you want to help me continue this series I’m trying to raise at least a few hundred dollars a month to cover my basic living needs. See bellow.

And if you like my art and art criticism, and would like to see me keep working, please consider making a very small donation. Through Patreon, you can give $1 (or more) per significant new work I produce, and cap it at a maximum of $1 a month. Ah, if only I could amass a few hundred dollars per month this way, I could focus entirely on my art. See how it works here.

Or go directly to my account.


Or you can make a small, one time donation to help me keep on making art and blogging (and restore my faith in humanity simultaneously).
