Artwork Description

"Stilleven IV: Nautilusbeker" - a piece that debuted and sold at the Spectrum Fantastic LIVE art show. This "Stilleven" (Dutch word for "Still Life") - is the third in a series of works I have planned that feature "deconstructed" elements of still lifes inspired by the Dutch master painters of the 1500-1600s, along with faeries & nymphs (of course!). "Nautilusbeker" is a vessel or cup made out of a nautilus shell. I happen to collect them myself, and they were a very common item (often used as salt cellars) in historic Dutch still lifes. A lot of fun details in this one, all popular elements included in famous Dutch still life paintings. The original itself sold at the show but I have prints & posters available! This is my own original acrylic painting.
