Large painting for sale




Well, large by my standards anyway.  I painted this a LONG time ago.  I still like it, but I think it's time for a change of decor, so I have decided to sell it as my house is too small to accommodate it anywhere else.  It is based on a landscape logo found on a European foil yoghurt lid.  I have a continuing fascination with packaging, especially the way that factory manufactured food products attempt to visually associate themselves with the poetic aspects of farm life.  I have a soft spot for those brand-created characters we associate with cooking skill and comfort, but I am also equally admiring of simple landscapes like the one that my painting above was based on.

This is an acrylic and oil pastel painting on canvas.  107 x 86.5 cm.  $200.  I made the wooden frame myself and stretched the canvas across it.  I think it might be the first and last time I did that.

Please contact me if you are interested in this painting.  (Please note: The painting and I live in Melbourne, Australia.)

Thank you!

Such a great painting. I hope it finds it's perfect home. I also couldn't help notice the hanging head full of pencils - love : )

Thanks so much Evie -- I do want to make more of the little pencil holding men -- I do miss clay when my hands aren't around it! :-)
