This work is unframed
This face and its highlights where done with 3 simple touches of a paint brush. as you can see it looks quite real... it was strange because I was just trying to see if it would work, since you know lino cuts only use silhouette forms to establish depth. with 3 brush touches, I managed to paint a characteristic looking face, I believe... don't you agree?
I desire to paint the ordinary in an extraordinary light, and paint the extraordinary in an ordinary way, to show people amazing things that they would otherwise miss. From abstract to landscape, fundamentally there is an underlying message of value and aesthetics, beauty in simplicity - I attempt to convey messages, a fundamental mood, a place where one would want to reside in peace and calm, in the image presented, a momentary timelessness where the world is of no concern and the mind, and so the heart, can be at peace.
I haven't held exhibitions, as I have never nor ever will sell any paintings, they are all cherished members of my family, and are held as my own private collection. For friends I would give paintings, and do commissions. But if I paint something, I keep it. I don't ever intend on selling a single darned painting. Commissions, yes, sometimes... perhaps you could call me an Inhibitionist
