Completed~ The Last Coral

Over the past 3,4 years as many if you know I’ve been doing the “Coral” series. I’m not sure exactly how many I’ve done other the years but I do know they’re all out there in the world. Sold or given away. Over the course of 2014 lots in my life changed. From massive traveling to major life changing events and then there’s the whole Parkinson’s thing. The piece that I’ll show here today “The Last Coral” will be and is the last of the coral series that I’ll be doing. Now I may try using a different technique at some point but my days of using a liner brush #0 or #1 I’m pretty sure those days are done sadly. The tremors have gotten to the point that when doing fine motor skill pieces my hands just don’t cooperate that well anymore. I guess it a good thing I paint mostly with a pallet knife and painters rag. Well I suppose we should take a look at this final piece.

There we have it, it’s been an amazing adventure with the coral series and I look forward to figuring out a way to continue this series using a different process. Until next time then. Please remember to always, Be Brave, Be Bold and Thrive in the life you have….

  1. Great wisdom in those last lines, Benjamin, and the art work is stunning. I love the detail. I’m sorry you won’t be able to continue working on them, but grateful for what you have done and shared.

    Be as well as you can be.
    Wishing you every blessings,

  2. All the ‘Coral Series’ were beautiful expressions of artwork, you should be proud of them, Ben! If you’d done nothing at all, nobody would be able to appreciate their finely drawn lines and corridors of Imagination and Colour. Looking forward to the next pieces πŸ™‚
