Artist's description:

The 10 scenes of The lamp.
This project goes back a ways… There was a time back in the 1980’s when I thought more in terms of multi panels to express my ideas, comic strip style. This is one of those projects.
Divided into part one and part two each with a title page adding up to 12 frames.
A humorous look at the psyche, inspired by my bendy table lamp.
Part one, the first title + 5 pages, represents the lamp becoming aware of itself. Part two, second title + 5 pages, shows what it does with its awareness!
The close up picture is of higher resolution so as to get a better look at the texture and brushstroke.
The date is on the last panel only, Aug. 1987. The paint looks as fresh now as when the work was newly done, a testament to the quality of the paint & the paper.
My work at that time was done without the use of preliminary sketches, or pencil lines. This is paint applied directly onto a blank page.
Available individually, but best as a complete set.
Packaging for my small paintings like this one is sealed in plastic sleeve, sealed in a padded hard plastic file case, and envelope covering.
Please note that you can purchase in one order up to 6 paintings of same size or smaller to be included in the same 1 shipping fee.
