Blue Streak

Blue Streak
Acrylic on linen-covered board
Framed in triple - inner thin gold, white, and outer blue
Unframed size : 305 x 325 mm
Price : Euro295.00 (excluding postage and packaging)

The background of this painting is pure white {not evident in the photograph} with a slight texture to it. Sadly, the photograph makes it look flat.

'Blue Streak' was painted for the Art Ireland exhibition in Dublin a month ago. There are hundreds of artists who participate in this exhibition, each one having a different success rate than everyone else, and I was given the opportunity to submit two paintings to the 'Nine Moons' group stand (thank you Deborah!).

It's not a big painting, just the right size to either be included with a group of paintings on a large wall, or to have a corner or smallish wall of it's own. I think you'll enjoy the unexpected colours which make up this little horse and the sense of movement and pent-up energy which 'Blue Streak' emits.

If not sold, he will be joining others on exhibition at Anton's Cafe in Galway in March 2007. My stocks of paintings are rather low at the moment, so I'm almost tempted to hide him (a la 'Cool Canter') until then.

I started fiddling with my paints today, so hopefully tomorrow is a turps 'n paint day .....
