This Vivaldi artwork is finished. Like each of the Vivaldi Four Seasons series of thirteen painting, this Vivaldi also took considerable amount of time, almost two months, to complete. The length of the artwork, over eight feet, and the complications in the building the music that flowed all over the edges, slowed the entire process. My thinking for the next painting is to choose a subject that will be a quicker to complete. Of course, that plan is practical only up to the point of starting.
I do not plan on selling this work, although two-thousand would tempt me. One reason not to sell is that this Vivaldi is already hanging in our living room. My practical reason to keep it apart of my collection, is that it would be extremely expensive and complicated to package up and ground ship, such a delicate eight foot artwork. Finally, my personnel and best reasoning for not wanting to sell this artwork, is that it represents my emotional attachment to the music of Antonio Vivaldi.
I believe this Vivaldi is a leap forward for this art. I am not sure how I will reproduce this look, but I do know all the following artworks for this year will display its influence.
