The Art Work
Working since childhood in many
different mediums, I have work available for sale, and can also
do work on commission. Whether it's photos, the freestyle abstracts, or
"pop" portraits, I'm confident we can figure out a way to make your
life better with a work of art for your home.
I started painting as a teen, and took classes at St.
and The Ottawa School of Art. In my twenties
I did produce some interesting paintings that people paid actual money
This was a painting I did to
acknowledge an Israeli bombing of Lebanon, and Stephen Harper's
comments regarding the killing of civilian women, children, and old
people with things like cluster bombs. It is part of a private
Me and some Paintings.
I also like to use imaging
software to make art that could be printed, signed, and framed to
custom sizes. Mostly, I just mess around with found images from the
net, and make new images. Fair use, and so on.... Check
out my two flickr accounts for more images... I also like to put stuff
on my blog and twitpic on a pretty regular basis, so check those often
Some of the images I/we have messed around with have been turned into
paintings. For example, this
image was derived from a photo of Ottawa comedian Ed Gougeon, by his
It is pretty wild on it's own, and
can be printed pretty big just as it is. But we turned it into a 20X30
Not only do the blue and red vibrate
in your eye, Christine meticulously covered the blue area with tiny
dots of gloss medium, which made the whole image shimmer and catch the
light as you move in the room:
The prices for these custom paintings
range widely, depending on size and level of detail. For example, a 5X5
foot painting done in simple two color hi-contrast, with a simple gloss
finish over the entire surface, would be far cheaper than the same
image done as a 20X30 inch, two-color, painting with gloss dots. The
reason is because the dots are the most arduous and time consuming part
of the process. It can take two hours to cover an area 5 x 5 inches, so
they can take a long time.
The gloss dots can also be in an array of colors - similar or different
than the base color - causing various different visual effects. But
always remaining true to the source image and the portrat subjects.
can do it with a photo of you.
Or your family, or pet, or favorite dead celebrity. Big or small,
detailed or complex, we can match styles and prices to match your
needs. You pick the photo,
and the size, and the colors, we confer on line until you are pleased,
and then we start the painting itself upon deposit.
