"Old Knowledge" --- Sold

Click Here to Bid
I really appreciate that so many friends letting me know that the object I painted previously was an old coalscuttle. I am learning everyday, Man! Thank you. My today’s painting is kind of related to learning. With the development of technology, books may soon become archaic too. I can’t imagine someday in the future that an artist paints (or creates an image with other means) a book and asks what kind of gismo he/she has just portrayed. I will be eager to tell that object is called a book, with which we used to store and pass on information in the good old days.

Beautiful shadow and light. LOVE the subject. For sixteen years I taught five and six year olds how to read, and that books are treasures. I hope this will always be true.

Hace tiempo que entré en tu blog y me encantan tus bodegones: Me llama la atención el colorido tan vibrante y , a la vez, armonioso de estas pinturas y también la gestualidad de la pincelada.
Saludos cordiales. Reyes R: Vicent
