Foronda Goes Back to Large Scale Painting — After 26 years!

[ Posted: Jun 27, 2022 ]


After being busy teaching at Pomfret School and Quinebaug Valley Community College and doing numerous pieces for clients, Anthony Foronda finally got a chance to spend some time with only himself, some paint, and a big canvas -- the first time painting on a large scale since 1996!

Although this time, his creative process is luckily on the healthier side. Anthony says: “Back then I would look at the blank canvas and smoke a pack of cigarettes before I would start. This time, I quit smoking and challenged myself to work on this painting without a cigarette in my mouth and cadmium red paint from the ends of my brushes (real healthy during art school and the 90s).
This time I am all range free and organic.” The finished painting in question has been titled “Skater Boy Lotus” (64” x 42”). It was made with Sherwin Williams Latex paint and Winsor Newton Oils added on top (if you look closely, you can also see several little hieroglyphs made with pencil in the lighter areas).

“I had a lot of fun and I am going to continue to paint this summer!!“ says Anthony and we here at Altpick cannot wait to see what else is coming!
