This wren is flying backwards to catch a fly, and I thought his pose was so acrobatic that I chose crazy colours and a rather abstract approach to match his zany antics. Painted in acrylics on a 40x40cm canvas ready to hang. All sides are painted, as per Gallery hanging requirements. The work is signed on the front, and a Certificate of Authenticity is included in the purchase.
LARGE ORIGINAL Oil Painting - Jungle Portal - the leopard's realm
40 x 40 x 1.5 inches large original oil painting of a semi abstract landscape with a leopard. It is painted on a square canvas which is dark at the edges and gets lighter towards the centre giving the idea of a portal or doorway to another world. The leopard crouches on a branch waiting for something to occur. She adds a touch of realism to the glimpse you see of her jungle realm. The scene around her hints at a river and colourful plants and I wonder if I can go through this portal into this jungle or if leopard can get out... Deep edge canvas, white edges, frame not necessary.
'Escape' started life as a series of purely random shapes connected by the white space between them. The image then grew to a point where I instinctively knew it was time to stop. As the originator, I see a head on the left the image (which contains red) with an open mouth... this combined with the overall image evoked in me a feel of fleeing or escaping. Other viewers see something completely different... The artwork has been double mounted on conservation grade mount board with conservation barrier backboard (including cellophane wrap). Mount colour: White/off-white with deep red contrast - inner bezel colour: white. Prints are available. Contact me for details or visit my website for further information.
This is an open edition laser print of an original painting done in a naive style which was inspired by a short surreal verse written by myself which reads as follows: Tiger, Tiger you gave me such a fright. Bells are ringing, choirs are singing all through the night. It has a 2 inch wide cream mount which will fit in a 14x12 inch frame. If you would like it without the mount or with a frame please contact me, also if you are interested in a gift voucher/certificate.
Abstract artwork on deep edge box canvas. This is done via a pouring acrylics method, and is varnished ready to hang. The edges match the front and it can be framed or hung as it is. This work is 10 inches high by 10 inches wide as displayed but can be hung in any direction. Varnished and ready to hang. Postage to mainland UK is included, postage abroad can be quoted for on request. commissions I accept commissions for these pouring acrylics, you choose size and colours from 3 to 8, and I'll do two paintings, you choose which you want. Its an unpredictable way of painting so results are very variable. If you want a bias of one or two colours, or mainly cells or stripes/bands of colour, I'll do my best but can't be precise. I don't want anyone buying an artwork they're not happy with, so though I ask for a non-refundable deposit of 25% final purchase price towards costs of materials, I won't hold you to buying if you really don't like either of the final results, but I'm certain that just won't happen. Cost depends on size, for example 8 x 10 inch paintings are all £28 inc P&P, 6 x 16 inches at £38 , 8 x 20 inches at £52, and square at 20 x 20 inches at£84. I can do other sizes on request.
