'The Dove Cloud' is one of my newest paintings. As you can see, it's a cloud that looks like a dove. The dove cloud hovers over the trees gently, as the sun's rays pass right through it. A slight mist remains on the ground. In the middle of the painting -- on the ground, you can see a log and to the left, a large rock sits. You can also see a small mushroom closer to the bottom of the painting. This painting has a lot of meaning to me, personally,
You see awhile back, my dog passed on. Well, as I glanced up above the trees, I saw a cloud that looked like a dog...my dog. The emotion was powerful enough that I just knew he was ok. That's where my inspiration came from to do this painting. However, I decided to do a bird, rather than a dog, because well...to me, the cloud was floating like a bird...so, hence the bird reference. :) Needless to say, it had a lot of meaning to me.
This is an oil painting, done on a matte canvas. The size is 20 x 24.
All four sides are painted, so there is no need for a frame.
This painting was not painted normally. In fact, the entire thing was done using a new technique that I personally created. I decided to call the technique, 'Dabbing.' Fair warning...there isn't a normal stroke on the entire painting, but the dabbing technique is quite visible -- as you can plainly see, if you use a magnifier in Internet Explorer. I believe the technique gives the painting a very soft touch, yet, it has a strength around the dove and trees.
If you would like more information about the technique, feel free to contact me.
Signed, dated, and comes with the C.O.A. Limited edition prints will be also be available upon request. Only 150 of each and they will be signed and dated personally by me. Once that number is reached, I will not sell anymore of them! I will be taking a newer picture of it soon, as I don't think the picture I took of it does it justice.
