Thank you so much. My paintings are so personal to me. My philosophy is that each of my paintings always finds its rightful owner. I am so happy to know one of my paintings has found a home with you. I hope you will enjoy it for many years. Did you choose "Winter in Paris" or "18th and Walnut?" Two of my paintings on "UGallery" sold at the same time and I was just wondering which one was yours. All the best, Faye

Hello all of you art lovers out there. I am so excited to become part of the "UGallery" family of artists and cannot wait to have dialogue with those of you who "connect" with my paintings and want to share your comments with me. I hope to be posting more paintings to my "wall space" so you will have more opportunity to know me better and see what is in my heart. I am mostly a figure painter, but unfortunately, at the moment, most of work is tied up in an exhibit until the end of April. I don't mean to ramble on, but one of the things I like most about "UGallery" is the opportunity to correspond directly with you. My art is so personal and I have a story about each painting, because every one is painted from my own experiences. I absolutely love talking about them and sharing the inspiration behind each one. I'd love to hear from you - until then.....Take care, Faye

Artwork Details

Comments About This Piece

There is something so special about "a man and his dog." This painting was inspired by one of my many trips to the oceanfront here in Virginia Beach. It is painted on Belgium linen mounted on birch and is finished with a UV protective varnish. This piece 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.
