They are precious! It's for an adult friend, but they could stay in this adult's house! Shipped quickly/safely. They were a HIT at the party - she loved them - sent me a photo of her wearing them to work in a physician's office! PERFECT!
Fine art inspired by heart and home.
I spent my childhood in Florida, but made North Carolina my home in 1981. I love the quiet of the trees and the friendly people of this state. I have taken a different route through life, graduating from college (North Carolina State University) in my early 30's, with a young boy in tow. I believe that my path has influenced my art. When I paint, I try to convey the spirit of home, love and hope. I have been professionally trained in the process of painting in the imprimatura style. "Imprimatura is a term used in painting, meaning an initial stain of color painted on a ground. It provides a painter with a transparent, toned ground, which will allow light falling onto the painting to reflect through the paint layers.The term itself stems from the Italian and literally means "first paint layer". Its use as an underpainting layer can be dated back to the guilds and workshops during the Middle Ages; however, it comes into standard use by painters during the Renaissance, particularly in Italy.
The imprimatura provides not only an overall tonal optical unity in a painting but is also useful in the initial stages of the work, since it helps the painter establish value relations from dark to light. It is most useful in the classical approach of indirect painting, where the drawing and underpainting are established ahead of time and allowed to dry. The successive layers of color are then applied in transparent glaze or semi-transparent layers."
My three dogs and two parakeets keep me company while I create. At 56, I feel as if I am beginning a new chapter of my life, and I hope to make it a great one!
