Ice Angel

ice angel36″ x 48″, Acrylic on canvas, 2009

This was the second painting I did for the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver, B.C. titled “Ice Angel”. For this second painting I went with idea of a figure skater in cubism, it was inspired by my earlier painting titled “Oksana Baiul”. I hadn`t done a figure skater in cubism before so it was nothing but fun for me. I used alot of color in this peice and worked with the figure skater`s artistic expression, costume and lights. Personally it`s one of my favourite cubism peices. This painting was later auctioned at the Winter Olympics in Vancouver, B.C. – Riel Benn (click on image to view larger version)
