An original oil painting by award winning San Francisco Bay artist Lisa Elley on a vintage Cohiba cigar box. For use as a keepsake box, or a charging station.

How unique is this cigar box with an original Golden Gate Bridge painting on it! I found this cigar box in a thrift shop here in the San Francisco Bay. It's perfect for a smartphone charging station, or to hide your keys & remotes, or just to display the original painting.

M Y B A C K G R O U N D:
All my paintings are oil on canvas, using mainly palette & painting knives, with thick application, bold strokes, painterly detail and rich colors.
The palette knife gives my art a unique combination of contrast, fluidity, depth, texture and impact. I do not typically use a brush, as I prefer the way I can mix buttery paints and smear them on my canvas with a flexible metal blade. The amazing thick texture achieved with the knife reflects the light more than a regular brush painting and gives a beautiful sense of movement, with subtle highlights.
I am originally from New Zealand, where the beauty of nature is unsurpassed. The luminescent beauty of our amazing world inspires me, and I feel it in every stroke. I try to reflect this in my work and invite you to enjoy it as I do.

My Artist's Statement:

Lisa is an award winning, modern palette knife artist with an unmistakable style, and colorful liveliness in her distinctive paintings. Given the name “The Knife Queen” by one of her many facebook fans, Lisa maneuvers her artistic knife with an uncanny fluidity. She creates vibrant landscapes, cityscapes, and portraits, hanging internationally in collectors’ homes across the USA, England, Ireland, UAE, Australia, New Zealand, and the Netherlands. It takes a very talented and accomplished artist to use a painting or palette knife. This technique is unique, as the paint is applied very thickly, adding subtle highlights with a beautiful sense of light and movement. Combined with this, is Lisa’s outstanding ability to capture with her knife the incredible detail and personal elements that will resonate with your subconscious, and transport you into her colorful world of visual transcendence.

Here in my Vango shop you will find a wide variety of my palette knife paintings. My store includes my current portfolio; small paintings which are often studies for bigger pieces, as well as huge paintings. Something for every budget! I like selling on Vango, because I love art and people, and I hope that you will have a great experience here from start to finish, as well as liking your artwork investment! Thanks for stopping by!
