Litchliter’s – “L’esprit de Carnaval”
The Long Awaited NEW Litchliter is here, and it is even more than expected!
Matt Litchliter’s new Mardi Gras piece “L’esprit de Carnaval” celebrates Carnival.
We are so excited to finally present Matt Litchliter’s Mardi Gras piece, and the detail in it is absolutely outstanding.
Matt has captured one of those precious things that make Mardi Gras special in New Orleans. His highly decorated character orchestrates the celebration of carnival, and mesmerizes us with his dress. It is apparent that the man in the piece is very proud to have on his flashy and heavily decorated costume, believing that he is the handsomest one in the parade.
Matt has added gold leafing to this piece, not only adorning the head dress, but he has graciously also peppered it throughout. He did not skimp on the fine details either, even in the smallest parts he has filled with marks of a fine point brush. I have provided close up visuals of those details for you to see.
Unfortunately the original has already sold, but no real surprise there. However not to fret, there will be a small limited edition of giclees on canvas availale, of which will all be nicely hand embellished and gold leafed by Matt. It is also the first piece in a series of the Mardi Gras pieces to come through the years.
Milo’s – “Raven” and “Ladies Choice”
First we are happy to announce that Milo has been accepted as an Associate member of American Women Artists. This non-profit organization is sponsored by some of the well known names in the art world such as The American Art Collector, Fine Art Connoisseur, Faso, and the Scottsdale Artists School. As always we are not surprised by her achievements, but we are always very proud of her.
Her new pieces are not only full of texture, but are a wonderful reflection of her personality, which is both playful and motivated. They give the viewer a picture to a story that the viewer is left to create. In “Ladies Choice” the female cardinal’s distant gaze gives no hint to whom she is going to select. It is left up to us to judge, debate, and choose. It is curious that the “Raven’s” gaze is directed above him. As a scavenger bird, one has to wonder what does he see above him that has caused him to have such an intense stare?
“Painting to me is about experimentation of mediums textures and styles. Like the many characteristics of my personality, I have many different styles that I love to explore.” Milo feels that, as a painter, this gives her work balance. Milo’s goal for each piece is to put what is in her head and within her heart on the canvas, but her challenge with each piece is to capture the feeling of her vision in the painting so the viewer experience what she feels and can relate to her on an emotional level. “I learned that painting could unlock trapped emotions and that even my worst paintings were lessons that would lead me to something special.” Milo work is indeed leading her to special places.
