Homage to Picasso

Homage to Picasso

Painted on Driftwood

23 x 40cm x 5cm

This piece in painted on driftwood found on my local beach. It is in homage to Picasso who is one of my inspirations.   

She is in the style of Picasso’s Dora Maar paintings. By some accounts, Dora Maar’s relationship with Pablo Picasso marked the end of her artistic career. When the young photographer took up with the older, celebrated artist in 1936, she was a rising star in Surrealist circles.

She is painted in acrylic paint and has a hook on the back to mount on the wall.

She is full of color and life.

Spring Flowers Blue

Spring Flowers Blue

Acrylic on Stretched Canvas

610mm x 760mm

Painted for spring.  Flowers make you happy and their beauty always demands your attention. I painted this vase of colorful flowers to brighten up the home.

Painted in the impressionist style, the quick thick paint strokes give a liveness to the painting. I used tones of blue, turquoise, white and green.
