ALL ART IS DERIVATIVE



Purple on Purple Oil Pastel on Acrylic background on panel 11x14

I read or heard somewhere that "all art is derivative". Well this proves it. Looking into older images for something to post (to keep the Villager happy) this morning I found this oil pastel. I did a series of these pieces about 3 years ago. All were done on top of old clay monotypes which were printed on a non-woven fabric, thus the deep texture. Late in the series I mounted several on panels with an acrylic background. I was working in the "Windows" series 3 years ago and didn't know it!

My goal is to now save money and get one of your pieces. Never before have I been so compelled to own art.

Peanuts, Thank you. Those are very affirming words for an artist to hear (or read) and they are greatly appreciated.

And the villager is HAPPY that you are now back to work. Moreover, this piece is striking because of the great colors, and the simplicity that always evokes something beyond. Best wishes for a smooth and quick recovery.
