Description : Glamourpuss – original oil painting by Eve Sellars

THE INSPIRATION
I am a huge fan of black and white movies, particularly those of the Marx Brothers. Their movies, which were at their best in the 1930s, herald the spectacle of the circus (they did all of their stunts themselves, and some were amazing) and the theatre, and often featured stunningly glamorous women of their time, notably Margaret Dumont and Thelma Todd, whom I grew up adoring.
These women were the foundation of the cast, pulling the four brothers back to earth with their inexplicable beauty and good sense, and allowing the men to run, dance, parade, and gaffaw their way through their ridiculous and wonderful storylines.

ABOUT THE ARTWORK
Swathes of thick paint were applied with a square-edged brush to produce an almost-abstract rendition of a glamorous brunette. The background is a soft pink-grey, and the edges of the canvas are painted black on one side, pink-grey on the other, to co-ordinate with the front of the painting.
It would look great framed, however this is not necessary as the painting is stretched over an internal frame and is therefore ready to hang.

MATERIALS
Professional artist oil paint
Gallery quality canvas, stretched and double stapled over stretcher bars.
46cm wide x 46cm high x 3.5cm deep
Picture wire on D-rings, and felt pads in bottom corners to provide airflow behind the art and to protect your wall.
A floating hardwood frame can be fitted for an additional $130. Please let me know if you are interested.

ABOUT THE ARTIST
Born into a family of musicians, authors, actors, photographers and painters, it was natural that life lead me here, poised at the canvas, brush in hand. I live entirely off-grid at my bushland home in rural Victoria with hubby, dogs and a gorgeously prolific vegetable garden.
I use art to express my immense – well, let's say obsessive – passion for the indigenous landscape, which is easily recognised in my vibrant colourful artworks. Luscious layers of pigment are applied with energy and spontaneity, often switching from brush to palette knife to provide additional texture and depth to my paintings. Recently I have embarked upon a series of paintings using skin tones to further broaden my skills.

There's never a better time to buy original art than right now.  So, let me introduce myself.  Born into an incredibly creative family, it was natural that life lead me here; poised; brush in hand.  I use art to express my immense – well, let's say obsessive – passion for the indigenous landscape, which is easily recognised in my vibrant colourful artworks.  Luscious layers of pigment are applied with energy and spontaneity, often switching from brush to palette knife to provide additional texture and depth to my paintings.  Lately I have introduced skin tones into my art to further broaden my skills and inspiration.  

You will rarely see me paint a landscape in the traditional sense. Instead, I prefer to get up close and personal with my subject, study its form and colour, its character and its flaws, and translate this impression into something new: cropped, colourful, suggestive, and alive.

So please, sit back, browse through my portfolio, and maybe one of my paintings will find its new home.

I am a member of Victorian Artists Society, Nagambie Artists Group, and Seymour & District Art Society Inc, and an active member of the art community with paintings exhibited on a continual basis.  You can also follow my journey on social media by searching my name Eve Sellars.
