Marbles...

'Two's Company...'


8" x 8" Oil on Box Canvas


I came down with a bout of 'Icantpaintitus' recently - I think it started when I murdered one painting and another committed suicide! I mean - how insulting! I didn't think it was bad at all, but that darned Rubber Ducky threw itself right off the shelf! Chuh!

Anyway, it turns out that the only cure for 'Icantpaintitus' - is to paint - so I did - and I think I am much better now thank you... And better still, this Marble study has inspired me to go LARGE and do another, more complex marble painting. It's great to have something large to get my teeth in to again between smaller works :0)

  1. Sandra, this is fabulous! Have you ever painted marbles before or have I imagined that? I'll look forward to seeing a larger version - I really love this piece. Have you thought about selling on artfinder or artgallery.co.uk - I think both are pretty good platforms and you should definitely get your work out there more!

    1. You have a good memory! I Painted one a very long time ago in Acrylics! But I'd like to do a whole series of marbles in oils. In fact, I have one 18" x 22" marble painting on the go as we speak... but I want to do a few small ones too. I love painting them!
      No I haven't looked in to Artfinder yet... It's on my to do list! No idea what it's all about! :0)

  3. How have I missed three posts!!!!! And so much happened too... Paintings jumping off shelves... Fish multiplying and someone dropped marbles all over a a canvas!!! Must be the decorating messing with things over at your place... Love the paintings though and I would say you are completely ov your bout of icantpaintitis
