54”w x 44”, acrylic on canvas
Jay Koka: “Sometimes the idea for a painting comes in the blink of an eye but it takes a long time to get it done... like 2 years.
I got the idea for "Bored" while walking around the pit area of the track during a recent Cavallino Ferrari Classic. My wife has been to enough car shows and races to last at least two lifetimes and I often get the sense she would rather be somewhere else...anywhere else that does not involve cars. The girl in the painting is not my wife, she just represents the idea... a person completely unimpressed and unmoved while surrounded by some pretty impressive wheels.
The painting was a long time coming... more than a year to get started and then 10 months of off and on work. Oddly, I completed the painting in the middle of my move to a different painting style in 2011 and it really sticks out in the new group of paintings... a different color palette and brushwork. But in the end, I think the effort was worthwile.”
This major work is AVAILABLE AS A LIMITED EDITION FINE ART FULL-SIZE CANVAS PRINT in an edition of 20 signed and numbered prints.
