The Art of Giving from CJK-Studio!

In the comedic song “The twelve gifts of Christmas” writer Allan Sherman playfully lists the gifts he will be exchanging. The disastrous list includes the automatic vegetable slicer that works when you see it on television, but not when you get it home, An indoor plastic birdbath, A statue of naked lady, with a clock where her stomach ought to be, And a Japanese transistor radio. This humor strikes a cord in all of us who have made hasty last minute gift decision’s.

Here is a helpful overview of paintings from CJK-Studio that will put a smile on the face of someone you love. For good reason!

Still Life Painting

“A painting is unique, special gift, a talking point and a family keepsake for years to come.” – CJK

Landscape Painting

“A painting strikes a chord, a sense of drama, the viewer makes an emotional connection with the painting which sometimes cannot be explained.” – CJK

Seascape Giclee Prints

“A painting can be of a special place or time in your life to remember always” – CJK

Brides Bouquet inspires Painting – Newlywed Gift

The Bridal Bouquet was inspiration for the wedding gift given to a wonderful couple. The painting is to be a reminder of their special day. Please view a Progression Video, of the painting “Sweet Wild Blooms”.

Artists notes-

The subject and style of the Bridal Bouquet lends itself to a timeless lasting work of art. Instead of the bouquet floating in mid – air or placed on its side, the floral arrangement is set into a glass vase. Keeping the background palette clean to compliment the subtle colors in the arrangement of wild blooms, I hope the newlyweds will enjoy this still life painting, the title was easy because the scent was so divine  –  “Sweet Wild Blooms”
