The gracious folks at Halloween Artist Bazaar have just posted an interview with yours truly… http://www.halloweenartistbazaar.com/featured-artist-interview-february-2016-grayson-fogg/
I just added three new pieces to my Etsy shop (https://www.etsy.com/shop/TheAutumnlands?), with a new color piece coming on the 31st of this month, at the EHAG Emporium (http://ehagemporium.blogspot.com/). These pieces are smaller and simpler, making them more affordable for those looking for some spooky art without the usual fine art price tag. This will be an ongoing series, so be sure to check back for more updates.
Recently, one of my first and favorite pieces, “Halloween Frolics”, sold, which means (of course) that the original is no longer available. However, prints are now available at http://fineartamerica.com/profiles/5-richard-moore.html .
Work demands have kept me away for several months, for the most part, and as a result I’ve missed making several posts. There was no EHAG Emporium in December, so here is the piece I premiered in the January show. As always, the original is available at https://www.etsy.com/shop/TheAutumnlands , and prints are available at http://fineartamerica.com/profiles/5-richard-moore.html .
The gentleman cadaver bust’s face is completed, including blue lips. A close-up shows the “wet” sheen on his milky, undead eyes. The left eye is meant to be rolling up in its socket, but I’m not sure how that reads. (You’ll have to forgive the absence of a few steps at this juncture. Photographing my work as I go is still a relatively new concept to me, and I often forget.) His suit is painted in an intense color scheme evocative of Halloween, followed by the “undercut”, which is given a faux-stone treatment. The base is first painted purple, and subsequent layers of black applied as washes, to allow the base coat to show through in places, unifying the color scheme. Finally, the base is coated with a glossy varnish, and the head with a satin finish, which is then brought down with applications of a dulling medium. And there you have it: One completed old cadaver, ready for the mantle.
For any who missed its unveiling at the June EHAG Emporium, here is my own modest contribution. Just looking at it makes me pine for the street markets of The Autumnlands… Well, some of them, at least.
