Mulholland Twilight – Nibblefest

June 20th, 2007

“Mulholland Twilight” 8 x 10 – oil on canvasboard
SOLD

The purpose of Ebay’s monthly Nibblefest is to generate interest and publicity for our works and the person with the most unique bids from different bidders is the winner. For this reason, it’s good to keep the price in a low range as long as possible because it encourages more nibbles. Of course, I’d love to see it sell for a good price at the close of auction, but in the beginning, small bids from a lot of different people is ideal. In fact, I’d love to see 15 + people bid on it in 50 cent increments.

I only take part in this activity once a month, so if you’ve been interested in owning one of my paintings, this is a great time to do it.

This painting – a view of the San Fernando Valley from Mulholland Drive – is even more vibrant in person. The sky is a blend of ultramarine blue and alizarin crimson, with accents of cerulean blue and cadmium red. It’s the sort of sunset that is all too rare because of our lack of clouds. But when they happen it can be magical. In the distance the lights were just beginning to come on, creating the kind of wild/urban scene that can only happen in LA.

  2. What gorgeous colour in this one. I think some paintings work best when the artist concentrates on one colour with less of other colours. This is beautiful.
