Antonio Vivaldi’s The Four Seasons, RV297, Winter Largo final image. I still have to create a final portrait of this work for the website. What you are again seeing in the enlargement are two separate photos merged together.
Now, I am wondering where am I going to store this 15 foot artwork, once it leaves the easels. I do have the last Vivaldi work, another 15 footer, Autumn Allegro, hanging in our living room, but I am thinking for safety reasons, I will put this one with the other giants stored on the lower section of this house. It would be nice to hang it in the bedroom, but most likely it will quickly end up leaving the studio, because of its size, to be carefully and tightly stacked together with dozens of other artworks. This storage method works, especially with the use of silicone paper sheets to keep each work separated, but this makes it difficult for me to see them, if they can even be found. There have been many times, that I have dug out an artwork, but mostly I have found it easier to look at them on-line, to refresh an idea, or to see how an object was painted in the past.
That brings me to something that I have wondered about. Knowing that Vincent Van Gogh sent most of his finished work to Theo, I wonder how much did he miss by not being able to look at his finished works. Maybe, seeing his past canvases, for him, was not that necessary for his new subjects were in front of him, presenting him with fresh ideas. But with this art, I have few visuals to work with and subject matter that sounds better than it looks, so referring to the past artworks is pretty much routine, and important to continually improving this art.
My final thought about Winter Largo is that I enjoyed merging ten different canvases together. I like letting the music define the look of the artwork. I do believe that is a winning path, that brings out the sculptor and builder in me. A couple of other things I would like to point out, is that I like the way the beams, seen in the above photo, curve and move. The last thing I would like to mention are those little red-orange circles, you can also see above, and the possibility that they may play in the future, to show the music. We shall see.
Now, here are the videos. The first one is another summary of this artwork, while the second one is what I call a Walk Through. I have wondered about how best to explain this art. I can not, for sure, tell you an exact answer. Hopefully, using these type of videos, I can connect the viewer to the music, and to this artistic journey which so far, I have found fun to follow.
