#5 Masks

January 23, 2010

 

Masks

Size:  16 x16 cm
            6.25 x 6.25 inches  

Medium: oil on cardboard  

Story:  This started out as two large river pebbles side by side. The faces just appeared as I was working.

What I like about this piece: Once again, some of the nicest ‘moments’ in my pictures seem to occur in the margins or as afterthoughts. I like the green landscapey curve on the bottom, it seems to be a bird’s eye view of a park or monument, complete with little trees; and the brown earthy triangle. The overall sober colour scheme of this pleases me because I usually play with lots of colours in the same piece.  Still, there is the touch of  hot orange and the strip of blue and white stripes peeking through. This one also seems to hint at space beyond the painting itself.

Tips:

Price: $25      €17      15 GBP         plus Shipping:  $5     €3,50      3GBP    (Only $5 shipping regardless of how many paintings you buy if  in the same order going to the same address).

#4 Wing flints

January 13, 2010

Wing Flints – This  is one of about 6 mini-oil paintings with a stone theme. They will all be featured here in the next weeks.

Size: 16 x16 cm
            6.25 x 6.25 inches  

Medium: oil on cardboard  

Story: Basically a study of a found piece of stone resembling flint

What I like about this piece: The symmetry, colours, and the little line of secret calligraphy running across the top.

Tips: Because this particular series is all the same size, buying several and using a changable frame would make an ever changing artwork.

Price: $25      €17      15 GBP         plus Shipping:  $5     €3,50      3GBP    (Only $5 shipping regardless of how many paintings you buy if  in the same order going to the same address).

#3 Amulets

January 5, 2010

Amulets – This  is one of about 6 mini-oil paintings with a stone theme. They will all be featured here in the next weeks.

Size: 16 x16 cm
            6.25 x 6.25 inches  

Medium: oil on cardboard  

Story:  Like Angel fossils (previous Featured artwork) , this one is derived from my soapstone carvings.

What I like about this piece: This is one of my favorites. I remember being surprised by the appearance of those mini-landscapes at the bottom of the painting. They are still my favorite part of the composition as well as their silvery neutral tones.

Tips: Because this particular series is all the same size, buying several and using a changable frame would make an ever changing artwork.

Price: $25      €17      15 GBP         plus Shipping:  $5     €3,50      3GBP    (Only $5 shipping regardless of how many paintings you buy if  in the same order going to the same address).
