Ready to Hang
I started working on this painting the day our car broke down in our driveway and needed to be towed away so it could be diagnosed. The conclusion was this vehicle is a very broken vehicle and much in need of costly mechanical repairs. My wife and I decided to say goodbye to our car and junk it. Since then we have replaced it with a solidly reliable car ...but I haven't painted a picture to commemorate that experience yet! Life experiences often become part of the mix of my thoughts while I work in the studio and will continue to inspire more paintings like this!
This painting is a 16"x20"x 7/8" acrylic painting on stretched gallery wrap canvas which I have titled, "Broke Down Blues" It is the No. 26 in my series called "Out of Your Mind". If you are that special person who becomes the owner of this special painting you can hang it on your wall without a frame and show off the painted edges of the painting or if you like, provide a frame of your choosing to go with your own room's decor. Thank you for taking a close look at this great painting!
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.
