India

It’s November 10, 2017 and I am currently in India. Yes, I said India! The wonderful collector in India has brought me to his country to conceptualize a number of paintings for his home in Lucknow for commissioned works. Those who follow my blog here perhaps will remember my posts about a new collector in India who purchased several paintings from me earlier this year.

This patron of the arts has flown me over to do a number of commissions for his amazing home in Lucknow India. I am analyzing and coordinating with the interior decorator to get the perfect size for the various rooms and large staircase between floors!

This is a challenge but it is also a wonderful opportunity to have my artwork shown in yet another country and a country where abstract art is not as prevalent a style used in India. We have been discussing what he wants in each room and I am taking notes of size and color so when I return to Los Angeles I can create the artwork that will be a monument to the way it was created from start to finish!

Working on a big commission

I do a lot of commission works and for very good reasons. When you get a commission you are having me create a work of art that is specifically made for you. You need a special size? I can do it. Have you found one of my works you just love BUT it’s the wrong size? I can create one for you similar and with the exact dimensions that you request for your needs.

SOLD – Enchanted Landscape 2

Lately I have been selling a lot of unstretched canvases which means that the canvas is not on a wooden framework called stretcher bars. There are actually a couple of benefits to shipping a canvas that is unstretched. The first is that it easier to ship rolled in a tube rather than a large flat box and in this case it was going to Great Britain so it was much easier to roll in a tube and ship it off. It is much less likely to be damaged and not everyone understands that if the frame breaks it could puncture the canvas and severely damage the artwork. The wooden framework can be replaced easily but the actual work not so much! So that is a great reason right there!

The other reason is that often collectors will want to have a work framed and often the framer will stretch it as part of the overall pricing of framing. Any of these reasons are good but the rolled canvas was best in this case simply because of the distance of international shipping. The box might be opened at customs and the work damaged or not repacked properly resulting in damage as the journey to the collector continues!

So this work is now being enjoyed in London and I could not be happier!

  • Size: 43 x 23 x 0.1 in
  • Shipped Rolled

Contemplative bold landscape painting with vibrant color blending, contrast and fine details.

Additional Information:

This work was created on a high quality loose canvas and is shipped rolled in a tube. Simply take it to your local framer to have it mounted. Since it is loose canvas there are an infinite variety of framing methods. Simply pick the one that is best suited from the intended installation area.

Looking for some REAL FINE ART with a soul that is not mass produced with the same look over and over then you have found the artist for that and you have found a perfect example of this with this large statement piece!

This artwork is on gallery quality heavy triple primed cotton canvas. I include a certificate of authenticity that lists the materials as well as when the painting was completed. Fine high quality materials such as Golden and Sennelier products are used and UV protective enamel for sunlight protection.

 

Thank you and enjoy it! If you would like to enjoy some of my art I welcome you to browse thru the shop and see what I have currently available.

Bright cheerful smaller work perfect for a sunny spot such as in kitchen. Brings the outdoors inside!

This work is a deep edge square painting with amazing texture and depth. For this series of 12 by 16 inches canvas, I used very large brushes for the initial details with plaster, then palette knifes for an even yet rough finish. Very contemplative bright hues and small light specs coming through. High acrylics and mediums to help with color blending.

If you would like to start collecting my art I sell it right on my website so check it out in the shop right now and save off gallery prices and enjoy working directly with me!

Thank you – Nestor Toro – Los Angeles
