Rhapsody

Description : Supporters of my art know all too well my deep connection to country living and rural lifestyle, and my fondness for gum trees.  I always try to emulate my sensitivity to, and appreciation of, the indigenous landscape by capturing the harsh and stark beauty of our local flora in layers of oil paint; usually by using a rather creative approach to colour... purple, teal, orange and pink often feature in my gum leaves, and Rhapsody is no exception.

"Rhapsody" is so named because it is free-flowing and organic, while maintaining a certain structure, similar to the same term used in music.  It has been painted in thick luscious layers of oil paint onto high-quality clear-primed natural linen.  The natural fiber of the linen in the negative space further emphasises the natural view of the typical Aussie bush. As the linen has been triple primed, no further protection or varnish is required.

It is a big painting - and will be an eye-catching and conversation-starting artwork for your home.  I have provided you with some 'in situ' photos so you can see how this painting looks in some rooms.  Feel free to reach out with pictures of your own space, and I can virtually insert the painting for you. I'm sure you'd love to see how it might look in your home.


ABOUT ME
Born into a family of musicians, authors, actors, photographers and painters, it was natural that life lead me here, poised at the canvas, brush in hand. I live entirely off-grid at my bushland home in rural Victoria with hubby, dogs and a gorgeously prolific vegetable garden.


I use art to express my immense – well, let's say obsessive – passion for the indigenous landscape, which is easily recognised in my vibrant colourful artworks. Luscious layers of pigment are applied with energy and spontaneity, often switching from brush to palette knife to provide additional texture and depth to my paintings.  Recently I have embarked upon a series of paintings using skin tones to further broaden my skills.


COMMISSION REQUESTS
Like something similar in a different size or using different colours? I am really happy to discuss commission requests.  

Please note, I do not produce prints of my artwork.


PACKAGING
My paintings are treated with the greatest care throughout their life in my studio and home, or at exhibitions where they may temporarily hang. I am extremely careful to ensure your art does not suffer scuff marks, dents or scratches; and it will be carefully wrapped in bubble-wrap and sturdy cardboard.


Best,
Eve x

Hi there!  I no longer sell my artwork on Gallery247, so please feel free to search for me elsewhere.  Thanks and have a lovely day!

ABOUT ME

Born into an incredibly creative family, it was natural that life lead me here; poised; brush in hand.  I use art to express my immense – well, let's say obsessive – passion for the indigenous landscape, which is easily recognised in my vibrant colourful artworks.  Luscious layers of pigment are applied with energy and spontaneity, often switching from brush to palette knife to provide additional texture and depth to my paintings.  Lately I have introduced skin tones into my art to further broaden my skills and inspiration.  

You will rarely see me paint a landscape in the traditional sense. Instead, I prefer to get up close and personal with my subject, study its form and colour, its character and its flaws, and translate this impression into something new: cropped, colourful, suggestive, and alive.

So please, sit back, browse through my portfolio, and maybe one of my paintings will find its new home.

I am a member of Victorian Artists Society, Nagambie Artists Group, and Seymour & District Art Society Inc, and an active member of the art community with paintings exhibited on a continual basis.  You can also follow my journey on social media by searching my name Eve Sellars.
