Original oil on professional canvas paper.
"The Crimes of Bridget Quince"
They're all laid out plainly here, for those with eyes to see...
I find intriguing the idea of moving between abstraction and figuration. Also defining then blurring edges. Playing with distinctions between planes, solid objects and areas of softer effects. Exploring ideas of defacement or loss of face or slipping masklike impassivity / surface calm. Colours as metaphors. Agatha Christie on acid. Rural bliss vs rural unease.

Blue with fruit orchard colours,

Original work on professional quality Canson Figueras panting paper. Painting paper, even.
Medium: Oil paints, using alkyd medium (this greatly reduces "drying" time, as well as increasing luminosity and creating a more flexible paint film, less prone to brittleness and cracking with age.)

Dimensions: 16 x 12 inches
Work date: April 13th 2011

A print of the first image is also available here:

Re. framing:
One economical possibility is to use a good quality photo frame (minus glass) as this 16 x 12 canvas paper is a standard size. Or perhaps an older, more elaborate frame could be discovered that would be more interesting with the painting... just one possible avenue to explore.

Ideally though, if you have a good framing shop near to you I would strongly recommend using them, as framing is such an art in itself. A good framer will enhance the art greatly, as well as -important, this! - backing the piece with acid-free board and choosing materials to suit your individual requirements.

Please note that screens vary re. colour accuracy. I use only the best professional quality oil paints, so be assured that the colours will be vibrant and lasting.
