View Full Version : WDE 30 June Elvii and palm trees

06-30-2013, 01:43 AM
I once heard a radio announcer discussing an Elvis convention wondering what the correct term was for a collection of Elvis impersonators and Elvii was born. It made me laugh and it had the same effect when I spotted these two bozos posing for money outside Balleys. Times are tough I suppose and you do what you have to do to get by.
I am pretty please with what happened here but I wish I had done it on a better surface. It is acrylic on a piece of chipboard painted black for some forgotten purpose measuring 30 x 38 cm and took 50 mins

The palm trees are acrylic on canvas board measuring 25 x 20.3cm. Not so happy with this one. I wanted the light to shine through the trees and just could not make it happen the way I wanted. 10 x 8 inches and took 45 mins

I love these Elvii - you made a piece of old board into a piece of art. I like your palm trees too - I would be happy with this.
It was really great meeting up with you last week and seeing where you create your wonderful paintings.
ps Thank your mum for the yummy scones :)

You should be proud. Original...emotional...and quality but with a sense of humor. Lovely work, as I expected from you.
