The first time I have found that the digital camera cannot "see" a color accurately is the orange in this painting...in the original, it is very sensitive and translucent, and has the feeling of satin...whereas how it is in this digital image, it almost tends to "glow" and looses it's "definition"!!! SO, sorry!?!?......
This was created in oils on a fine porcelain sheet, by the same company that creates the extremely large and thick tiles that NASA uses on the outside of the Space Shuttle, for heat protection. These small, fine quality porcelains, however, they are made for circuit boards for computer controlled products...
They are extremely fine quality, and very durable. The oil that the images
are created with, is very stable, since the tiles are porous, thus
accepting the pigment into it's surface, making a permanent binding.
The rich and intense quality of the colors in these creations have little to do
with the porcelain itself, but solely to the artist's ability and vision.
It does take special handling of the pigment,
for once a color is placed on the porcelain, it is very likely to stain the surface,
and thus damage the final outcome...
All of the oils on porcelain, are created with both transparent color (all of the flesh is the porcelain shining thru the oil, which lays on the surface...in person, it is quite handsome, but with any photography, the "lens sees" the difference between surface color and transparent color (where light travels thru the color, and comes back to our eye, as refracted light...!??!)
As far as the artist's knowledge, there is no one else in the country
that is creating images of this caliper and design, on these fine quality porcelain plates. Many is the time she has been asked by other aspiring artists where
these tiles can be obtained...the last time she purchased them,
it took hours of red tape to finally get a good supply. What she has
in stock will probably be the end of these creations, thus making
them an excellent investment...if "rarity" is one of the points
in qualifying something as "valuable"!!!
