TREE OF ENVY . $3,000 . acrylic on canvas . 24 x 26 inches . 1985 . framed
I am looking to sell this painting of mine for the current owner who had originally purchased it in 1985 which is also the year in which it was painted when I had a studio at Forum Art Institute in the old CPR Station building.
When I saw the painting again I was struck by it’s size and vibrancy of color. The photo I had been viewing all these years certainly was not as bright and I had become accustomed to the darker image. So it was nice to be shaken out of my mist. Pure bright color was a staple of a lot of my work in the 80’s, pretty much all of the rainbow colors in one painting, but I seemed to have had a kNak to combine and blend them in a way as not to be garish I was told once.
When I took a photo in B & W I was surprised at the melding of the foreground tree with the background sky and this combined with the shapes in the sky was like a memory of seeing nature on magic mushrooms. So no need to take it when you’ve got the painting.
Ring or e-mail me if your interested. (shipping included) email@example.com or 204.956.7675
