Fish out of Water...



'Fish out of Water'...

2ft x 3ft, Oil on Stretched Canvas
SOLD



...I'm sure most of us can relate to that feeling at times?


Detail


...And in my case, never more so than when I'm in charge of a camera! 
It proved almost impossible for me to get a perfect colour match, so I am sharing two more photo's below, which are closer in colour than the ones above...







...I could actually call this a 'Self-Portrait'... after all, I painted it when I was feeling just as the title suggests! And I find no therapy like painting how I feel...





...Anyway, I have sploshed back in the water now and with that in mind, I will shortly be starting another even larger painting; This time a 'watery' still life and a highly complex one at that.

Might take me a while, but watch this space!!

  1. wow, just wow! I love the surrealistic feel to this - very different for you and it is amazing. You won't believe what my next painting was going to be and now it's going to seem like I got the idea from you but I really didn't!

    1. Thanks so much Karen!
      It was just something 'floating' around in my head that I needed to get out!
      The next one I am doing mind you is very much more complex. I can't wait to get stuck in to it! :0)

  6. Bonjour chère Sandra,

    Je crois que ce titre s'approprie parfaitement à mon état actuel ! J'ai l'impression que quelque chose m'échappe !!... Le temps va contre moi, et les heures me manquent terriblement. Il est vrai que le printemps m'accapare beaucoup ! et pour me donner bonne conscience je vais dire que ce qui m'arrive est une bon traitement thérapeutique !! Dans la vie rien n'est négatif, n'est-ce pas ? La contemplation est nécessaire pour la création...

    Ce très joli petit poisson rouge hors de l'eau comme le dit son titre est un grand séducteur ! Il a trouvé une famille ! Toutes mes sincères félicitations !
    Ton travail est magnifique. Je suis sous le charme de cette très belle composition. Bravo l'artiste !


    ❀ Gros bisous ❀

    1. Vous êtes si gentil Martine! Oui, moi aussi je me suis senti la même chose sur beaucoup d'occasions! On pourrait penser que les longues journées supplémentaires que nous obtenons au printemps, apporterait plus de temps dans le studio, mais en réalité il semble tout à fait le contraire pour moi en ce moment aussi! Espérons que nous pourrons bientôt tous deux gérer notre temps un peu mieux et de revenir dans le studio! : 0)
