I’m not including shipping. Costs vary significantly with size and distance. I don’t want to be out of pocket, and I do want to offer a fair price. So if you would like to purchase, email me with your address, and I will get you a quote to add to the art price. Then you can decide to go ahead and buy or not. For anyone living in the Vancouver Lower Mainland, if we can arrange a meet-up, then no extra charge.
This 10×10″ on paper glued onto canvas pairs nicely with the pink crystal ballet couple. I took a long break between starting and finishing this piece, and not just because of lack of time. I didn’t know what to do with it. I was starting to get tired of realistically replicating subjects and wanted to play with a more representational style and do something different with the background. So I did – play. Ever-increasingly, my approach is to make every patch interesting with what intrigues me to paint. If I’m not engaged, the result is unappealing. Bored, I hacked at the shadows. The transition. I didn’t want to leave the black patch in the original photograph, so I put in stairs (a favourite of mine). THen in went the crystals, because I wanted the challenge of painting the light reflections in the complex glass but didn’t know in what context. The result….the image. Very busy in bold colours. I had to be careful those didn’t overpower the dancers.Get in touch
