Harvestman rides a roof in Ohio

Marlin Peterson’s Mural in Ohio from Jonathan Jackson on Vimeo.

I had a fantastical experience painting another species of harvestman on a roof for a prolific art collector in Akron, Ohio.  I did the 3D, (or anamorphic), painting so it was viewable from the incredible setting of the Hieronymus gallery.  There were some tricky logistics, for example the sun only beat down onto the roof for an hour or so per day, usually shaded by large trees around.

For this project, I chose a local opiliones called Leiobunum vittatum.  It has a bright bold brown and reddish orange mottled body with darker brown legs…remarkably different from another opiliones I did in Seattle Phalangium opilio.  

It was an amazing experience to be one of the many indescribably awesome artists represented at the gallery.  The trip was worth it just to see the collection of art!












Here are some images of the process….
