At my lovely and bright wife’s suggestion, I have begun painting old lamps and lampshades, creating works of art that look different in the day and the night.
This one is called “Piano Jazz” and is painted in oil. It uses 40-watt “tube bulbs”, similar to what a lot of range hoods use. They can be found in any hardware store.
$125.00 plus tax and shipping.
Members of my creative groups get half price.
“What if,” my wife said, “you did one of your paintings on a lampshade?”
Being a woman I listen to and who is often full of good ideas (generally more of them than I can do.), I gave it a go this week. And here it is. I call the painting “Cuba” because it reminds me of the jazz and lights of old Cuba, particularly at night when the light is behind it instead of in front of it.
In a way, it’s two pieces of art in one. One set of colors and whiteness in the day, and something entirely different at night when the lamp is mixed. Oil on lamp shade.
I have no idea what to charge for it, but I am open to offers…..
