winter plums

36"x24" - acrylic on canvas

Here's a painting I did for some friends for their new house.

Yes, I'm totally influenced by Eyvind Earle for the tree (hell, you could call it a ripoff), but I tried to put my own spin on it. Besides, it's a personal piece, so I don't care!

Hi I'm from Portugal, and I've recently found about Eyvind Earle, probably in the end of last November. I was dumbfound when i saw his "Giant Oak" wich was the first painting from him that i saw, it really made me try to understand how can a painting leave one breathless, and this "common place comment" really is still how i can describe the joy of seeing it. I next found out that no one knows him here, not even in the Plastic Arts University of Oporto, so this was a pretty big secret I felt I had. Being Christmas so close I made it my father's gift a book from Eyvind Earle, and was very thrilled to see his reaction to it. I chose The Horizon Bound on a Bicycle. So When it arrived I was very disappointed that it didn't have any of his oils on it exept for the cover. My dad missed a special thing , I thought, and quickly put it under his clock and the remotes on his bedside table for "later". I've been reading 5 pages a day from it whenever my dad is not around, because it would be very embarrasing if he thought I gave him something I wanted for myself. It has been an incredible ride reading this man's story. It's a funny thing when you find something really special and than by trying to understand it, it leads you to a little incredible world of it's own, and when you come out of it, it is the most wonderful thing to be wandering around and finding yet again an image that catches your eye in a way you canĀ“t quite grasp, and seeing the wink to that little incredible world that thrills you so much. It happened also in a Brad Bird interview i've seen about the incredibles
