Owen Normand

I absolutely love this painting Weight, by Owen Normand. It’s oil on wood.

Since I work with coffee, I love anything that has to do with it, especially old-timey things. This particularly reminds me of the coffee pots they had on Little House on the Prairie.

This is part of a series of small scale plein air, alla prima’ paintings [wet paint layered on wet paint] done in Italy and Berlin in the Summer of 2015. He says, Working on such a small scale with these landscapes and still lives enables me to concentrate on the whole image at once and helps to keep the brushstrokes loose.

It comes framed in a heavy, black lacquered beach wood frame.

Owen is in the Saatchi Gallery. He lives and works in Edinburgh, UK. If you dig this as much as I do, here is my 320x50 Live & Travel with your Pet
