Mabrie Ormes - Blue Bowl (framed cluster)
Blue Bowl was painted from the subject in oil paint on two canvases that were framed together. A UV protective varnish covers the paintings. The work measures 17 inches high by 34 inches wide, including the artist-built grey-painted wood frame. A “cluster” presents one subject from several points of view. It is part painting and part sculpture. Originally the idea came to me when I wanted to make large works and had no place to store them. Now I choose this format for its versatility and the surprises it has to offer. Blue Bowl will arrive on your doorstep in a cardboard box, which I have constructed myself and which boasts double walls and lots of bubble wrap. I will handle and ship it to you for no extra charge or hand deliver it within 35 miles of my studio in Ashland, OR.
