Nostalgia - Revisited by lukechueh Nostalgia - Revisited by lukechueh
8" x 10"
Acrylic and Ink on Board

The PR1MARY SPACE show (as mentioned in my Journal) is my first show outside of So-Cal.
Since I was showing work to an audience that has probably never seen any of my paintings outside of my website I thought it would be ok to "revisit" some of the previous ideas I am most fond of.

This is my revisit of "Nostalgia"

To be honest, I'm not to pleased with the way this piece came out when you compare to the original.
I think it's because of the negative space, or rather, the LACK of negative space in the finished painting.
I blame this on the size of the board (8" x 10").
I usually work from 11" x 14" and bigger.
Don't get me wrong... I don't hate this piece, I just think it could have been a little better.

your painting is hanging in a helio store in palo alto, california in a room with kiss (the band) painted panda bears. they're cool but this piece is better. very cool work!

I like the colors better than in the original one. There's more depth with the darker background.
