Artist

Pamela Blaies
Colleyville, Texas

Pamela Blaies unexpectedly discovered her passion for art. A move with her family put her children in sad spirits, so to cheer them up she painted murals on their bedroom walls. With time, she began looking forward to painting more and more. She works in “alla prima” style, a technique in which artists don’t wait for paint to dry and work with layers of wet paint. The effects of light and shadows in the world greatly influence her work. She currently lives in Texas. Fun fact: before starting a family, Pamela worked as a fashion model and traveled extensively

Artwork Details

Comments About This Piece

This was painted in the alla prima style. Working wet on wet is my favorite way to paint because it encourages an energetic pace and requires me to focus on capturing the essence of the idea I am expressing. The name of this painting describes my inspiration. Warm sunlight bathes the work, adding sparkle and energy. This painting is on oil primed linen affixed to archival Gatorboard. It come varnished and will need a frame for display. 

Oil painting

Oil paint uses natural oils, such as linseed, poppy and walnut oil to bind the pigments. Oils are slow to dry, which allows the artist to rework the painting to achieve the desired effect. Also, they blend easily, which helps to achieve certain colors. With the rise of naturalism in 15th century Early Netherlandish painting, oil paints became preferred to quick drying tempera paint. Artists wanted a medium that would allow them to achieve detailed and precise effects in their paintings. Consider all of the detail in the masterpieces of Jan van Eyck and Hieronymus Bosch!

Canvas board

Canvas board is a thin, flat panel of either particle board or cardboard wrapped in canvas. If not already framed, most canvas board work will require framing.

One-of-a-kind

A one-of-a-kind artwork is a unique piece handmade by the artist. There is only one in existence. The work may be part of a series, however, the piece itself is unlike any other. This piece is available exclusively at UGallery.
