Gage Academy of Art Parade Float 2015

I was fortunate to have the opportunity to paint the four backdrops for the Gage Parade Float!  The four paintings featured on the float are Klimt's "The Kiss", van Gogh's "Starry Night", Munch's "The Scream" and Botticelli's "Birth of Venus". Each painting is 6 feet wide and 8 feet tall - MUCH bigger than I usually work! 

I had to work large, loose and fast! Each painting took an average of 8 hours to paint from primer to finish! 

The Gage float appeared in the Seattle Pride Parade on June 28, 2015 and will appear, with additional embellishments, in the Seattle Torchlight Parade, July 25th.
