Mythomenial: the big picture (polyptych previsualization)

Here is the rough previsualization I am working on for the completed five paintings which make up the Mythomenial polyptych:

For each painting I create a photo-collage. All of the still life elements were set up and photographed by me in my studio, some of the images of the boys were culled form photos Eric and I have taken of our family over the years. More than half of the photographs of myself and the boys were shot by the very talented Lori Dagley. I am using images collected from the internet for each painting by a famous artists which appears in the background (see the post What's up with that figure in the background for more details about that). Three curtains, two windows and the back of a canvas appear in these collages which are taken from paintings by Vermeer and Velázquez. Some of the collages are only very broadly blocked in at this point. The next painting I'll be working on in the series is Sensamenial. You can follow my progress on that painting here. I'll also be updating the polyptych image as I complete each photo-collage.
