Juried Award winner: ArtSlant, 2016 2nd Showcase
Happy Couple is an example of why I love to paint in a lyrical, expressionistic style. Sometimes things just really happen. The key is to know when to stop. To me, so many paintings I see seem overworked, which often saps the energy out of the painting. Happy Couple is a visual representation of spontaneity and acceptance.
The surface of this painting is very matte - no gloss whatsoever almost as though the image is woven right into the canvas.
Right now I have it over my fireplace while it waits for another loving home!
If you are in the NYC area, you can see 7 of paintings in the lobby of the office building 135W50.
Due to it's size, this painting is shipped rolled in a tube. It doesn't require a frame but will look very nice simply stretched on a 1.5 inch heavy duty stretcher.
