Original artwork description:

"James Earley is one of the most important artists in the world today" International Contemporary Art Curator Magazine 2019

Jason lives on the streets of Bournemouth. I met Jason at Christmas 2019. He was tired and cold but kind and caring. I spoke to him at length about his life and we spoke of his dreams for the future, dreams that were fading but still there.
I wanted to show in the back ground that his dreams were alive although they had faded somewhat. Jason was all alone and he was living in an environment where dreams are not encouraged yet he would not let go of them. I admired him so much.

I wanted to paint "Stolen Dreams" in a realism style using oil paints on canvas. I wanted to create a documentary of the consequences of poverty.
I primed the canvas in red paint and started building the layers of the oil painting initially using large brushes and gradually decreasing the size of the brushes until I used single hair brushes for the smallest of detail.


FREE SHIPPING- The painting is professionally packaged and shipped within 5 working days and tracked and insured during delivery

ORIGINAL ART- "Stolen Dreams" is an original oil painting signed on the front and professionally framed in a bespoke frame. The painting is unique as there are no prints.
The best quality oil paints (Michael Harding hand crafted oil paints) and the finest canvas are used. The painting will come with a signed certificate of authenticity
