This painting is about my move to Beverley and my plans to experiment with aquaponics and water saving gardening techniques in a sustainable biosphere home
I painted 'Beverley' when I came here to be artist in residence (before I had made the descision to shift here) and I included a man sitting near the fire pit (I had intentions of buying a plasma cutter and learning to create metal art.)
I ended up meeting Ian after I moved here (who looks like the guy in the painting) and took up cement sculpting instead (and am working towards learning to make that fountain in the painting)
- learning about metal can come later (after I have conquered cement)
The rainwater tanks and aquaponic gardens are ways that water can be saved and fresh food can easily be grown in the wheatbelt (which is even drier this winter)
And everything is blue (its about water) - the people in the sky support us and supply the water - and as an extra affirmation I painted a little boat - representing being sent gifts and abundance in a physical form by the spirits
This canvas,is 120cm x 90cm x 5cm. It is on a strong weave (10 ounce) with acrylic paint.
The bird represents peace - which Beverley has in abundance and I love love love it
As with all works of art, common sense must be used to protect the color from fading. This information is just as relevant with painting as it is with pencil - although acrylic paints are way more resilient than coloured pencils.
So as with all art it is best to keep out of direct sunlight. You can wash a painting down gently with warm water.
This acrylic painting by Mandy is on a heavy canvas, gallery wrapped onto strong heavy stretcher bar and comes ready to hang
1.2 meters x 90 cm x 5cm
One of Mandys latest paintings
buying art is rarely a single person decision - ask your signifigant others what they think
I promise to be safe and careful with your private information
