Original acrylic painting on Wine Barrel Staves in the trompe l'oeil style - ~37"x ~14"
Fine Art could be defined as a creation developed for its aesthetic or intellectual beauty, as opposed to applied art, say, something like a decorated teapot.
These paintings on wine barrel staves clearly fall into the Fine Art category, and they are loved and appreciated by nearly all who see them.
The staves are first laminated into a basic 'blank,' and a composition is designed in such a way that portions of it extend beyond the edges. These extensions are then crafted by the artist and permanently attached prior to painting. The painting is done in the most realistic way possible with much consideration given to the 3-dimensionality of the elements.
The resulting paintings are an absolutely unique collectible object that is sure to be cherished by following generations.
