Two more paintings for the gallery project

My husband and I are no art connoisserus. We bought paintings within our budjet and taste, as souvenirs from our stay or visits in South America.  Gradually they became a collection.  Sometimes the frames cost more than the paintings.

The two paintings I am showing here are by a Colombian collage artist called Carlose.  They represent a protest against poverty.


Two homeless boys adrift.  Their clothes are pieces of fabric.


It's a rather large painting. You can see the miniature on the bottom of the frame.


Made of various pieces of wood, carton, etc. We actually  saw  real ones like this.


1:1 size painting with the miniature 1:12 at the bottom right side of the frame.

I am making progress with the frames.  I'll soon have to do something about the box.

Have a wonderful Sunday with blessings to all.

  11. I have always enjoyed looking at the real paintings in contrast with the minis :).

    You have done a great job with the framing. I totally get you when you say the frames cost more than the paintings. One time I spent what I considered way too much on a painting. I was so disgusted with myself that I left it rolled up in the tube I :). came home with for the next 4 years When I shifted recently, the walls in my office was perfect for the painting. and I finally took it out:).

  13. I think that's the best intention any collection can have - collecting what you like. These two paintings in mixed media are stunning and very touching.

  16. It's not how much we pay for a painting that matters, it's what the painting means to us. I had a painting once that I had purchased in a garage sale and it had a gorgeous frame. It was a pastoral scene with a road that ascended and disappeared. I loved looking at that painting and it made me happy. Nobody else liked it. Finally, I gave it away and I have always regretted it.

  28. Ho appena letto i tuoi ultimi post e il tuo novo progetto mi sembra davvero molto interessante e soprattutto originale. Anche io adoro l'arte, e devo dire che questi quadri sono molto belli, sia per i colori che per i soggetti che rappresentano. Le tue riproduzioni sono a dir poco impressionanti, si riescono a vedere tutti i particolari nonostante le piccole dimensioni! Bellissimo progetto, un bacio,
    Mely
