    Description

    Always on the lookout for interesting items to put in my still life setups, I knew as soon as I saw it that I wanted to paint this deer skull with its gorgeous antlers. I had it for ages but was unable to find just the right things to pair it with until a friend lent me the wonderful patterned rug it's now sitting on. The warm colours in the rug, a big, flat rock, some dried leaves and a pinecone all combine to give a feeling of fall which seemed to suit the deer skull perfectly.

    This painting is professionally custom framed.

    Shipping within Canada or the U.S. via FedEx in a strong box specifically built for shipping artwork is an additional $250. Shipping elsewhere in the world would need to be costed out and a quote provided.

    beautiful

    This is a beautiful portrait. For this viewer that lovely face reflects innocence and purity, although that is perhaps not what the artist intended. Great skill is demonstrated with all the elements of this piece - particularly the textures of the hair and the cap. Overall it is an outstanding image.

    Well, one must read the description with this painting. The artist projects such an enthusiastic spirit and I am immediately caught up! This painting surely conveys the fantastical, a place inspired by dreams of other realms -- yet within this world, shrouded in the lore of history and days gone by.

    I wish there was more socially motivated art such as this one about beach erosion; the concept is well symbolized with falling angles and elements. There is color (life) above but a cold bareness below.

    Very colorful meeting of shapes conveys a happy feeling. Looks like a gathering of boats -- as if they are all talking.
