Empathy Invasion

Empathy Invasion - acrylic painting by Troy Thomas; 36 inches by 48 inches on gallery wrap canvasAs I was working on this painting, I gave it the working title of "GeoAztectric" or "GeoAztecric". Just today, I realized that I had two different spellings for it. However, I didn't quite like the name for the work. Therefore, after some thought, I named this piece, "Empathy Invasion."

For this painting, I used Liquitex Super Heavy Body acrylic paints mixed with Liquitex Gloss Super Heavy Gel. The work area was a 36" X 48" gallery wrap canvas. The sides are also painted corresponding with the pattern on the front. Because this is a symmetrical design, it can be hung horizontally or vertically. Whoever buys this piece can choose which way he or she would like it hung on the wall.

Please feel free to give this link to anyone that would enjoy looking at this type of art.

Here are the specifics of this piece:
Title:   Empathy Invasion
Size:   48" X 36"
Medium:   Acrylics on canvas
Price:   $2000

Working Title "GeoAztecric" is Finished

Painting, artwork by Troy ThomasYes, I finally finished this painting but this image is a bit blurry. I will take another picture of it soon and get that one posted. I am not so sure that I like the title of "GeoAztectric", so I may change it in the near future. When I post the better image, I'll give more details about this painting.

Final Stages of GeoAztecric

Painting, artwork by Troy ThomasAll I did for this step was to add a dark green paint to the very center shape.

Painting, artwork by Troy ThomasMy final color was originally intended to be black. Instead, I chose to go with something a little less dark. So purple was used instead. I only had time to do a few spots before going to work, so I finished a day or two after this step.
