Firstly, I would like to wish everyone to stay safe and well in this difficult time. May you, your families and your friends be supportive of each other and stay socially in touch to monitor everyone that may need your help to get through this together.
Thank you so much for subscribing to stay in touch and for liking my art. Very much appreciated. 🤗
For my last two new paintings I have changed direction. Following ten years experience with painting mainly animals I have reached the happy and rewarding transition towards this new subject matter and style of work. Classical sculptures and art represents the emotions of many people and often touches deeper feelings and opens meaningful understanding. I am really looking forward to progressively moving into this new subject ad style more deeply with my oil painting technique.
This new painting I have called
‘Inner Peace’ (54” x 36” and oil on linen).
Demonstrating a few changes with my artistic view point, this is an interpretation of a famous cherub sculpture, 'L'Amour Menaçant' ('Love threatens') Cupid by Étienne Maurice Falconet, who is considered to be the most important sculptor of the French Rococo. The sculpture merely emphasizes the mysterious nature of love, a very popular theme in Rococo art.
Best wishes to all and stay safe.
