Metal Statuette

I had a "fiddle" and painted out the base. Here is where it stands. Using that term loosely as it is actually floating.. Maybe I will leave it, maybe not.. What do you think?

I have had this statue sitting on the entertainment unit for years. I bought it as a gift for a girlfriend for her birthday one year, and for some reason didn't end up giving it to her. I love it, so I don't mind that I still have it.. Acyrylic on canvas board 5"x7"

Painting is not quite as dark as showing here..


  1. I have a statue just like that sitting here in this room ..... the bow of the fiddle is broken though ....too much dusting I think .....well maybe not!
    It does look a bit dark as you say JJ....maybe better light would show up more of the creases in the clothing ....

  2. This is a very interesting object JJ! It reminds me of a Braque painting (except that it is a sculpture)
    It would have been quite a challenge and probably difficult to paint! Well done!

  3. Well done gone a lot of detail on this painting on a small scale ;)
