Re: SHOW US YOUR ORIGINAL PAINTINGS, etc...."NICE" ART

I posted this in the Framed Stuff thread, but also thought she deserved to be here... This is a portrait of my family that was created by Mike Stilkey.

Re: Framed Horkey Thread

I completed this project a few days ago... This might not be his best piece of art, but to me is his most important piece and is my favorite... She is floated with triple black mating. http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4116/4861914815_8c38fd07bc_b.jpg http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4076/4862535478_b8cc...

Re: Framed stuff part 4

I just got done with this project (She deserved to be framed)... I elected on giving her a slight weighted bottom (2" top and 3" bottom)... Got inspiration by Ashton (Thanks James) on the mating... Solid black inner mat (1/8") with a bright white outer mat... I am very pleased with the outcome. http...

Re: Framed stuff part 4

Over the past few years, I have been gathering framing equipment in hopes of one day being able to frame my own stuff. After doing a couple of small jobs for friends (get the kinks out), I finally framed a print for myself. This one is going in my newborn's room. Definitely room for improvement, but...

Re: Sleeping Horse 10 Stilkey

The style reminds me of Ralph Steadman. Really nice in person. I can see that with the leaves / red splatters and it does have an overall kind of gestural style. I think Stilkey is most known for his book stack paintings, where he paints the bindings. Some pretty cool stuff. I will say, they really...
