  Metaphor Set of 3 Original Paintings
  Heron Glass Art and Mirror with 23 karat gold and copper
Paul,Linda-Water Lilies - Contemporary Painting by Linda Paul
Water Lilies - Contemporary Painting by Linda Paul / Other / 12 x 24 2 / 699 USD

Description: This painting is so colorful with vibrant aqua turquoise brilliant greens and deep violet blues in the water. The gold flowers have flames of gold, amber and deep but transparent umber. The other two flowers are majenta and violet. its perfect for today's trends on decorating where aqua and turquoise are once again taking center stage. It has a high gloss finish This original work of art is painted on a 12" x 24" x 2" art panel/board. it is a solid surface. I began this painting, by creating an underlay of metals and then applying layers of intense transparent colors on top. The metals under the paint glint and sparkle like glass on fire. Depending on the angle of the light, the piece seems to dance with changing colors and internal light. It looks amazing in candle light too

Artist's Philosophy: In a society where everything seems so temporary, it is my philosophy and personal standard to create works of art that will last for hundreds of years. There is a saying in the studio, "We are Tiffany, not Kmart". This philosophy translates into everything that is created in the studio from the original paintings, frames, canvas prints and tile murals. Quality is everything! and I will only put my name on something that is the highest quality that can be achieved. You only get one life, so make the best of it and everything you do! Artist's Inspiration: I am inspired by so many things! I especially like nature's produce combined with its origins. I live to travel , especially in France & Italy and many of my paintings are inspired there. I do not paint from photographs. Rather, I collect vignettes or pieces of many different things that I like, and then in my mind I will put them together into a painting. Here is an example: My painting, "Everything Tuscany (below) is a collection of all my favorite Italian things: The little fat Italian chef statue I saw in Cortona, Italy, The basket of Chianti wine bottles is from San Gimignano, the ceramic vases I actually purchased in Montepulciano and had shipped home to America. The Tuscan landscape is from a drive to Monteciano, and of course the cheese and sausages are all over Montepulciano where we stayed for a week in a tenth century seminary. The arched tunnels are typical of Tuscan villages and make fabulous sheltered restaurants and shopping areas for Italian goodies! And then I will just add other things for balance and interest, like the wine barrels and the rooster.
Artists Statement When asked `What is your favorite painting', artist Linda Paul responds, `the next one I am going to paint!" Style: When people ask me what style I paint, its a two part answer that does not fits neatly into any one existing category. My work is a combination of "chunky realism" and impressionist painting. I like to juxtapose sculpted bas-relief products of nature (the chunky part) against soft impressionist landscapes of their origins.

She married and immigrated to the United States in the early 1990's and found herself without a green card. With boundless time on her hands, she spent many hours walking the beaches in the San Francisco bay area. She would pick up pieces of dried seaweed and examine their shape. Deciding the sea plants looked like people, she decided to haul some home and paint faces on them. If this sounds very childlike, it was! Having painted the faces, she needed something to stick the seaweed people in. Some plaster should do it. Then needing to paint the plaster, she bought some basic kindergarten powder in dark blue, and voila, her first piece of art was born. It really looked like something a six year old child had created, but it was exactly this innocence and complete freedom that led her on. Liking the texture of her first "creation" , her brain thought, "I wonder what some plaster carrots would look like on a board. Off to the lumber yard for plaster and the grocery store for carrots! Her second piece was called "Flying Carrots" (see below) Something in her mind just opened up like a tidal wave and she was smitten with creating. Liking the vegetable theme, she created three more sculpted vegetable pieces and boldly entered them in an art juried art show in Burbank , California. She knew right there that this was to be her new path in life. 12 years later, Linda Paul is now an internationally recognized and collected bas-relief and egg tempera painter.
