This oil painting resulted from a computer generated image that I designed for the Born to Draw Children’s Art Drawing Program. The computer image was to be a demo from the Matisse cut-out project that teach color and shape relationships to 3rd grade -6th grade children.
The composition of the piece had to fit an elongated format of the slab door without looking like a montage of two pictures juxtaposed.
There were objects changes from the original sketch. The paint is drying now and after completely dried I would like to apply to the painting a non-yellowing and UV protect varnish. There is not enough time to do that and allow the painting to completely dry before the artist reception. The painting was completed on a slab door 30″ by 80″ in oil. The sides and back ofhte painting is stain natural and has a hand wax and polished finish.
I hope that whomever purchases “When Life Serves You Lemons…” enjoys the painting for a very long time.
This is the painting I just finished today called, “When life serves you lemons…” I am working on it in a corner of my kitchen. It is for a fundraiser for the Sawmill Land Trust art auction they picked 25 artists and will have a reception April 6th and the Art Auction will be held at the Hotel Albuquerque April 26th 5-8pm. The painting is a homage to Henri Matisse and a painting that should sell. It is painted on a door slab 30″ x 80 ” painted in oils. it is up to the buyer of the painting to use as an artwork or a door.
