Ready to Hang
All in attendance at her arrival, all subjects wrapped in their attention and ready to give way to whatever the Emerald Queen desires as she enters the circle of her loyal subjects, gracing their simple lives with the glory of her emerald qualities. Let none be deceived, Her Royal Majesty is the center of attention and the desire of all around her.
This is my painting, the "Arrival of the Emerald Queen" which is a 16x20 acrylic on stretched gallery wrap canvas work. I used a very limited palette to create intimacy in the scene and kept the tone values mostly in the middle tones without bright highlights or large areas of deep contrasts and for these reasons this painting has become one of my very favorite pieces. It also will reward it's viewers with some very interesting compositional journeys if you have the time to explore.
This wonderfully dynamic painting is composed of smaller elements that join into more complex images that become involved in relentless motions that will come together in your mind, providing you with dizzying journeys for your imagination.
If you become the owner of this gorgeous painting you can hang it on your wall without a frame and show off the beautiful edges of the painting which are a continuation of the paintings face or if you like provide a frame of your choosing to go with your own room's decor. Thank you for enjoying this painting with me!
This is the No. 6 in the series "Out of Your Mind" - is a 16"x20"x 5/8" acrylic on stretched canvas painting titled "Arrival of the Emerald Queen"
My name is David L Friend. I am a Vango artist. Thank you for visiting my portfolio. As far back as I can remember, I have always expressed myself artistically and the process of creating things graphically has always been important to me. I discovered the world of oil painting when I was 11 years old and have never lost my love for painting pictures. While I have loved and practiced drawing and painting almost all of my life, I spent much of my adult life working as an architectural drafter to pay the bills and support my family. That worked well …up until several years ago when I was laid off due to the economy and needed to shift gears and find something else to devote my energy to. Today, I'm a self taught artist living in Everett, Washington with my wife and family. I am empowered by a love of art and a desire to express my artistic vision using my business called 'Art and Imagination of David L Friend' as a tool to introduce and sell my artwork. I have a studio located in my home where I paint work that is commissioned as well as work on developing other painting projects that are of interest to me. My artistic viewpoint finds expression through the use of acrylic and oil paints with which I create unique abstract images on canvas and offer them to those who appreciate them. I welcome your interest in what I do and look for the opportunity for you to have something I have painted or to create a work of unique and special importance to you.
