On a fairy lake.

On a fairy lake. Original oil over acrylic pour on paper 5.5"x7.5" fantasy painting. Matted and framed into 8"x10" grey frame. I am experimenting with mixed media. I tried not to disturb original acrylic pour but flawlessly add something to it. It was not easy.

Abstract paintings

Posted on October 9, 2020 at 10:20 PM


I had a fun last couple of days with acrylic abstract paintings. I never did it before and I am not sure if I will do it again because I used too much of paint, had leftovers, did couple of more abstract paintings from leftover paint. And it is very messy.

But here it is - 2 large canvas. And I had so much fun, enjoyed it. May be, I will do it again, because I loved it.

I see here waves, water and sky, two figures, male and female, on separate canvas. And it's alive. Lol.

It was acrylic pouring technique.

He and She.

Commissioned paintings

I just finished two commissioned works and I am very delighted to present it in my blog.


BONAVENTURE CEMETERY. SAVANNAH. GEORGIA.

Oil on canvas 24"x36".



WINTER FIREPLACE.

Oil on canvas 20"x24.



Painting of winter backyard scenery.


Many people ask me about prices. So, I can tell you this: it is not cheap as many people think or expect. Let say, I spent 3 month doing previous large work. It requires many layers of paint, for layers to see through, drying time, precise work in every area (if you want to have quality painting, of course). I don't include drying time, let say, I worked 2 month part time on a painting. Calculate minimum salary for part time worker for 2 months, add cost of paint, frame and materials - you will have an idea. Prices depend on size, what actually I paint, and time, of course. On my eBay store I have different prices - from cheap to not very cheap. And I can assure you - it is much cheaper then in any gallery. Work is work, right? But if you really want one, you can always talk to me. I am very thankful to my precious people, who ordered a painting from me with all respect for difficult artist job.
