Our World, Our Canvas by donnaquinn Our World, Our Canvas by donnaquinn
Edward and Eloise were tickled pink. They’d just passed their Artist Test with flying colours, and were the proud owners of slick new artistic licences. Their unlicensed friends would be green with envy as Eloise and Edward painted the town red. Or blue, purple, striped, polkadot....
Smugly grinning, the pompous Paint Police watched from a distance, already scribbling fines for the newlyweds' outrageous use of colour and seriously negative space. Recently-licenced artists usually went overboard the moment the laminated scrap of plastic reached their trembling hands.

Acrylic on acid-free matboard, 56 x 81.5 cm. Scanning this on my A4 scanner was a nightmare!

I wrote the above description a long time ago, when I did the first concept sketches for the main characters late last year, and I don’t think it quite fits the tone of the finished piece. However, I’ve included it anyway.

Your painting quite literally killed me! The amount of details, magnificent details… they just took my breath away. (Seriously, for a minute there, I stopped breathing) And I'm not even trying to exaggerate! Oh their expressions, the way the colors blend and the whole concept behind this piece of art.. mesmerize me!
