here is the third of 3 paintings for the autumn society's 3G show at gallery 1988. ghostbusters, goonies, and gremlins! again, keep in mind this is a 3D layered painting since my photos can't show it! a gremlin and popcorn painted on glass, about an inch apart from the background of the movie theater. it has depth! visualize!
this must be my favorite of the three 3G pieces i did. i think the layers really make this one, and it wouldn't be nearly as cool without it. it's really disappointing that you can't see in the photo, but i feel like it really looks like a chaotic movie theater with popcorn, flying in the air and being flung all over the place. like my ghostbusters piece, i had this scene picked out for my gremlins piece the moment i heard about the show. this is one of my favorite scenes from gremlins and i watched it 90 times so i could paint this, and it still makes me laugh every time. i love hearing them sing the dwarfs' song. hi ho hi ho! i didn't want to paint the actual dwarfs from snow white, so i took the scene they are watching and painted that-- just with silhouettes instead of flat out disney characters. and i picked out a some of the crazy things the gremlins are wearing during the movie (there were so many more i wanted to do..) but i chose the popcorn bucket on the head, popcorn bags on the ears, silly hats and tinsel boa, etc. adorable. very fun one to paint
i know i'm repepitive with this, but i really, really, reeeally wish these looked online the way they do in person. this one i really love the depth in. so fun
