This framed original oil painting sold to the customers in the image to the right while being exhibited at the ART 2013 exhibition in Taipei, Taiwan.

May 2014: In the Fine Art Trade Guild's 2014 Art and Framing Awards, 'Solitaire' and I, were finalists in the Best Selling Published Artist category. Although the winner was a contemporary fantasy painting that I don't attempt to compete against, I was nevertheless very honoured to be short-listed alongside some seriously good artists, selling paintings for tens of thousands of £ pounds and represented by major publishers.

August 2013: In Red Bubble's 23rd juried invitational Solo Exhibition, 'Solitaire' was judged as '1st Place in Traditional Art' and given a special recognition 'Solo Exhibition' award, given an 'Excellence Award' in the Traditional Painting category and awarded 'Best in Show' overall! Another pretty clean sweep...

The 'Open Edition Artist's Prints' are produced by myself 'on demand' using my professional Epson Stylus Pro 7880 wide format printer on the highest quality Epson 350gsm heavyweight Premium Satin poly/cotton (65/35) water resistant art canvas at a high definition 2880 x 1440 dpi and using UV resistant 9 colour 100% pigmented inks guaranteed lightfast for 75 years. This canvas has a glossy surface and may be stretched for framing if required. I can also print on heavyweight Hahnemühle (or equal) fine art paper if required and subject to the quantity of prints. Each print is individually reproduced, QC examined and passed by myself to authenticate its origin and verify its quality. Please see the Prints page for further details. Print prices are uniform, depending only upon size. Although all artwork is shown in my galleries in the colours created, I can produce prints in black & white should this be preferred. Please contact me for details. They are generally supplied unframed to save on shipping costs, though frames can be provided at an extra cost if required.

The grace, poise, silence, innocence, concentration, solitude -  Solitaire...

Produced in cooperation with Shay Wieder (Thanks Shay)

Painted entirely with a knife. A high level of contrast is provided and the colours made extremely rich, bold and lustrous, thus creating a very contemporary feel overall.

It's a large, very dramatic, passionate, emotive, moody and atmospheric figurative dance painting that would not look out of place as a feature in a lounge, study, office, music room, conservatory, bedroom, hall, landing or similar room and be a focal point to be proud of.

Contact myself for more information about this beautiful work of art, or if you would like to purchase a print. Obviously, the quality of the original painting and prints is much better than displayed here, though if you wish to make a closer inspection, please let me know of any specific area you're interested in and I'll e mail a higher resolution image to you.

This painting was supplied framed in a heavy, high quality Arqadia frame. Contact me for details.

Here's what a wide variety of artists thought of it on Fine Art America, Red Bubble and Deviant Art where you can also purchase unsigned prints, posters, postcards, mugs, t shirts, coasters, stickers and jigsaws of my artwork.
