Drone is a large abstract painting on canvas by visual artist Shawn McNulty. This painting will ship unstretched and rolled up. When the artwork arrives, you can frame or stretch it with the help of a local art handler or framer.

Fun Fact: This painting has an interesting story and process video attached to it. As you may have figured out by now, I like to limit my control in the interest of creativity and spontaneity. For this experiment, I worked the canvas with my feet while wearing a VR helmet. My view of the canvas was from the vantage point of a drone flying overhead. My brain had to reassess the situation. It felt like I was watching myself in a dream and controlling a character in a video game. Unexpectedly, we received our first snowfall of the season that day, which started during the process of the painting. When I was finished, the canvas was covered with snow, so I folded in half and protected in my garage. I brought it back to my studio and flattened it out. This resulted in an unintentional Rorschach ink blot symmetrical composition. You can see where the snow melted and mixed with the paint to make some exceptional drips. Check out the entire process in the video below. Special thanks to SkySurv for their help with the drone footage and VR tech.
