On Friday, November 4, 2011, I will be getting all dressed up and going to the Movember Austin Mo-Tie Affair, where this painting will be a part of the evening’s silent auction. The cocktail party and fundraiser takes place at LIVESTRONG HQ, and benefits Movember, funding multiple men’s health organizations. To bid on this painting (among many other awesome silent auction items!), and for what is certain to be a great time, register at http://amotieaffair-eorg.eventbrite.com/.
My art contribution to the silent auction is this 12 x 12″ gallery-wrapped canvas, with red floral all-over design and a black mustache. The sides are painted as well, so the buyer doesn’t necessarily have to frame it, but I do think this painting would look sharp with a sleek black frame. One detail I couldn’t capture with a camera is the presence of pattern in some of the roses. I used other similar shades of red for a monochromatic effect, and the result is a multi-textured and visually rich painting, without the background patterns being overpowering or excessively busy.

Looking for some fresh new art to spice up your home for the fall season? You are totally in luck! I have two brand new paintings in progress, both of which will be ready to deliver next week, sold separately OR as a set, available this week only at a special presale price.
Each painting is a 12″x12″ original floral piece on gallery-wrapped canvas. No frame needed, as I’ve carried the design around all sides to the very edge, although it could completely transform the feel of each piece if you do happen to have the perfect frame laying around. Once complete, these paintings will contain more detail and color variation in each petal, but will retain the same composition and vivid pop-art feel.
One is yellow, and the other red. Again, they look fabulous together, but could each make a lovely and bold statement individually. I’m offering a 25% discount for presale orders, and would recommend this option to anyone seriously considering obtaining one of these pieces. Each finished painting will cost $100, so reserving one for $75 is a steal (and ensures that no one else gets his/her grubby paws on your new art)!
Want one? Awesome! Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org for payment options and availability. ❤
