I made it out to California this spring to paint plein air. My friends had a peach tree in their back yard.I was exuberant about the sun and the warmth and the flowers. And the frame just pumps it up another notch!! By the way, I hadn't done one of these carved frames for several years, so it was fun working with the style again. Warning: this painting is bright and bouncy and not for the shy. I like it but it does make me laugh. It's painted in acrylic paint on a canvas covered wood panel that I prepared. Like all my landscape paintings, there's many layers of paint, and plenty of detail.
It is signed and dated discretely on the front. It is titled and signed "Robert Christy, Artist, 2013" on the back. The frame was also made by me and is basswood, carved and shaped and painted in acrylic to complement the painting. About Me I've been a full-time artist for twentyfive years.Through the years I've been in numerous solo and group shows, mostly in the West - Seattle, Mendocino, San Francisco, Santa Cruz, Monterey, Los Angeles, San Diego, Las Vegas, and Bisbee, Az. But also in the Midwest and South - Wisconsin (Lake Superior area), Chicago, and Atlanta. In all these places I created unique works suited for these areas. But of course, not every work in a show sells (oftentimes not even the best ones), galleries go out of business (they can even be more unstable than artists), the artist travels on... I have an enormous archive of unsold, maybe even never shown paintings. Now I work out the midwest, and travel west to paint on site and collect images. I also love painting the Midwestern landscape. So, art for sale here may have been made very recently. Or, it may be 10 or more years old. I stand completely behind all of my work that is for sale, here, whenever it was created. Everything for sale is recognizably my work, and only my work.
And if you like it, that's all that should matter. So, many of my canvas stretches were made by me.I also made many of the frames. This does increase the works value - imagine if you owned a Picasso where he made the stretcher and the frame! This item is in the category "Art\Paintings".
