This painting titled, Family Home Evening is six by eight feet in size. I limited the tools I usedin order to add to the awkwardness of the scene. I painted it largely with 2 and 3 inch brushes and different types of palette knives. I wanted the family to seem comfortably uncomfortable as they consumed hours of television. The vantage point is from the inside of their TV, as though we the viewers are the actors in their program. "All the world is a stage."
Thank you to the Earl family for their willingness to be painted in a less then flattering fashion.
