"Major Tom" is inspired by the thin, red line between earth and the skies, between failure and success, with a hypnotising, tentative skyscape on top of the painting. It is a large, ABSTRACT, energetic, free, authentic, intuitive, colourful, rough, positive, curious, accessible, unpretentious, spontaneous, unpolished, multi-layered, focused, emotional, uncorrelated, gross motor-skilled ARTWORK.
This abstract painting is a unique piece of art, containing all of the typical ingredients which best define my way of painting: Gross-motor-skilled, rough, unpolished, authentic, impatient and full of energy.
This professional quality oil painting is done on triple-primed gallery wrapped Italian linen canvas mounted on a massive 3D wood structure (5.2 cm thick = 2.05 inches) in heavy-duty gallery quality. The horizontal wood structure of the stretcher is made of Spanish centenary pinewood from Soria and the vertical structure of Brazilian Taeda pinewood, because of its extraordinary stability. The edges on the left and right hand side are painted. This artwork is ready to hang.
Colours: blue, red, green, yellow, black, magenta. All mixed, diluted and overlaid amongst themselves in different intensities.
My signature will be found on the back of the painting, unless –upon request- you wish me to sign on the front side. This painting includes a Certificate of Authenticity.

IMPORTANT: The images in context are not 100% in scale and are for display purposes only. I have done my best to adjust the size of the painting as realistically as possible into the background picture.
