Ready to Hang
What's are martini without extra olives? I was wanting to do a still life that wasn't to serious yet not too whimsical either. I used only the knife and heavy bodied acrylics on this, so there is lots of texture. Complimentary and contrasting shades of red, blue, green, yellow, pink and purple bring this cocktail to life. It's size and presence make it a great statement or conversational piece. Nearly 2 inch gallery wrapped edges have been painted black and the piece is ready to hang. It has been given 2 generous coats of varnish to protect it for years to come. You will receive a certificate of authenticity with the painting which has been signed on the front in the paint..
I grew up in the San Juan islands of Washington State. Surrounded by a rich art culture, I developed a love for painting. Both self taught and informally educated, I primarily work in acrylic but from time to time you might find a watercolor or mixed medium piece. My works are not currently shown in a brick and mortar gallery, I have preferred to sell pieces through referral. When I discovered the Vango platform, I was thrilled. It seems to be a perfect venue to share my pieces with those looking for an original piece of art to bejewell their home or office. Artworks are like flowers, we should surround ourselves with them as they bring us joy. Bright and abstract makes me the happiest, so I hope that you will find a piece that can bring a smile to your face each time you pass it by. My art now hangs in private collections all over the US in cities such as New York, LA, Washington DC, Boston, Austin, Denver and San Juan Puerto Rico.
