Artwork Description

Professional100% pure natural linen on MDF backing board.

Signed with a certificate of authenticity.

While paintings are usually viewed 'as a whole', as an artist I am always amazed that such magic can emerge from a 'blank page, or canvas', and sometimes I delight in leaving some of my surfaces blank/nude - as if my painting just emerged from the blank surface. As if coming to life.

This is one one of these such paintings. I wanted this wonderful musician to star, unhindered by any background, and this may be the first in a series of Renaissance costumed people enjoying the fantasy of creating the impression of medieval times full of revelry. To further add to the 'emerging' I have used my paint to render a 'glow' around her, in same tones as the natural linen, and was pleased with the result, especially as it toned down or eliminated some of the flaws that occur in texture and colour with natural linen. I was fortunate to attend some wonderful Ren Fairs, and found many wonderful characters to photograph, and now, would love to bring them to life - emerging from my canvases.

This painting is far better than photos show. To walk past it, it commands attention - I think it is the bold colours and contrasts. But, because of the natural linen it goes from light to a bit darker, depending where it's viewed. Makes for VERY difficult task to photograph. I have tried to show it as well as I can to represent it.

I loved this woman's costume, and she was so generous with her time with me, while taking so may photos of her. Such a wonderful subject. Images of moons and stars add a bit of magic, in a great costume. I've used metallic gold and silver, which pick up the light from various angles.

Offered unframed, but framing choices are available.

The 'surface' is natural raw linen, on 3mm MDF backing board. 100% professional. Easy to frame.

All care is taken to represent my artwork, but due to monitor differences and other factors, the colour(s), and also size shown in the interior 'in situ' hanging suggestion, can vary. Signed on rear, to keep the 'emerging' appearance, unhindered. Also signed COA provided.

Available internationally.
