Melting Ice Cubes by Darren Maurer
8" x 8"
One of the great things about being a daily painting artist and blogging the work on a consistent basis is being able to continually challenge yourself. I've had this image in my head for awhile now and finally decided to do it. I wanted to use ice cubes that are made with a regular ice cube tray instead of the automatic cube maker kind. They were a challenge due to the transparent and opaque areas within the ice. I am happy with the finished painting because I can feel the ice. I painted this in about a minute and a half before the cubes melted under the hot lights. (Only kidding!!!! I took a photo and worked from that because it would last longer.) This is painting 112 in my Painting A Day Series. Painting Sold
