Description I use a 400 year old Flemish technique that involves painting in layers. This produces superior results both in the effects that are found in the work, and it's longevity. It is guaranteed to last a lifetime without fading/cracking if kept out of direct sunlight under normal room conditions.I've been painting using the multi-layered technique in oils since the mid 70's and have never had a single painting returned for rework due to craftsmanship or materials defects. Actually, I've never had one returned for any other reason either. Once you have a beautiful piece of art in your hands I guess folks like to hang on to it.This apple is one of a series. It is so crisp and inviting to just pick up that slice and dip it into some peanut butter. But wait, it's better just hung in your kitchen or dining room.Close up views will show the depth and details not usually found in paintings today. I've also included one that is not to exact scale, but gives you a good idea of it's size compared to some furnishings.I know you will enjoy hanging this anywhere in your home as much as I did in creating it!
Delmus Phelps, Lynchburg, Virginia Member Since February 2009 Artist Statement I've been painting for over 30 years part time, but went from managing the maintenance of a 2500 strong factory to painting flowers full time just a few years back.
Boy, what did I get myself into! I'm now chasing the dream before I was to tired to try, and it's been so exciting!
