Those who are familiar with my art know that I love to paint big pieces. I find it quite rewarding. However, recently I've embarked on a minis project and I love it! It's like turning a shrink ray on my pieces.
Ampersand artboards are perfect for this project. (It would be beans to stretch canvas this small methinks!) So I basically work on the panel which has a mount that I adhere to the back. Voila! Instant hanging.
I like this project because I think that size and cost shouldn't prevent an art enthusiast from owning a piece of art or having a personal portrait done. It don't like the idea that art is exclusive, because inherently colour, form and texture are not... they are everywhere in nature. So why should a relative few own art? (Sorry, my rant ends here ;) )
I'm still working on getting my online store up. However, feel free to shoot me an email if you're interested. Also, look out for uploads in the oil paintings section.
This month, I had the privilege of exhibiting a few works with renowned and established artists like Kenwyn Crichlow, Jackie Hinkson, Michelle Boyd and Michelle Tappin. The beautiful work of fellow emerging artist Wesley Kanhai was also on show.
It was a great night. I got to meet genuine art enthusiasts as we celebrated the opening of a new art space here in Trinidad. It was really exciting. The next day, my friends and I took over the gallery in the private viewing you could say.
Welcome to my new blog. I've been on tumblr for a while now, but I feel that I've outgrown it. I thought that I'd start off with some colour inspiration. I tend to get inspired by the flora around me. The colours in the Caribbean are so vibrant! I love the light coming through these leaves.
I'm taking a break from ceramic work to focus on my painting until July or so. I hope to upload my musings consistently so hang in there, lol!
