Earnest # 1

TITLE: Earnest # 1 (01/01/07)
MATERIALS: Acrylic on canvas
SIZE: 30cm x 30cm x 3.5cm
My little neice Tasha (Natasha - aged 3) has had a couple of sleep overs lately. Totally gorgeous little girl who worships my two kiddies. She has to do everyhting they do and be just like them. Thyey were showing her their latest artworks from me and Tasha goes "what about me. I take one home too?" Of course!!! So this was her pick :)
This piece is very difficult to photograph. I have taken one during the day, one at night and one at an angle. It is painted in black and white with a "purple" irridescent medium applied over it. It depends on light and angle how it appears at any given time.
The quote is written on the side and reads "Without earnestness no man is ever great, or does really great things. He may be the cleverest of men; he may be brillaint, entertaining, popular; but he will want weight. No soul-moving picture was ever painted that had not in it depth of shadow" - Peter Bayne
