I wanted to try a traditional still life, using an old world globe as my subject matter. The old books behind the globe are untitled, and I like to think they could be journals containing notes and maps within. I don’t know about you, but it really makes me feel like travelling to, well, almost anywhere!
Old World Books is an original acrylic painting on 10 x 10 inch triple-primed, 11 oz pre-stretched canvas, back-wrapped on 1-1/2 inch deep stretcher bars.
The subject matter is diverse for each of my paintings – basically, whatever strikes my fancy – yet they all have a familiar, whimsical, illustrative quality to them. My paintings have found new homes across Canada, in the United States, Germany and England.d.
With the 1-1/2 inch depth, the painting can hang without frames and appear to have some weight to it. Edges are painted.
