# Comes framed in a black oak floating frame

Howdy spunky art lover! Awesome to see you looking in on this painting… “Brothers in Arms” which is the latest addition to our ongoing Ned Kelly (Sidney Nolan inspired) series. Features red, orange, sienna, ochre, green, blue, grey, teal, black and white acrylics, oils and inks on a heavily textured and layered canvas base!

The main focus of this collection is my “Abstract Realism” Heads series. This series features varied subject matter including nudes, semi nudes, Geishas, Native Americans, Aboriginals, sporting legends and lots of pop icons such as Marilyn, Hendrix, Lennon, Williams, Prince, Bowie to name a few. These pieces are always created by hand and brush with acrylics (no spray or screen-printing). They feature 100% textured bases (in some cases 2 and 3cm tall textured parts) and hand created stippling over texture. There is no mistaking this for being an original painting, rather than a FLAT FLUID piece or print. This painting will NEVER EVER be sold as a print. The full gamut of acrylics, oils and inks intermesh with a lovely varnish coat that plays with light that falls over it and the texture. This painting has LIFE.

Cousins, these Abstract Realism pieces are my animals, which are mostly off the same highly textures bases and things like Chanel Bottles, Chairs, Moto GP riders, V8s and flora. They are also highly commissionable and I do a lot of pieces of loved ones, pets and peoples own favourite entertainers or subject matters.

This is a developing range, so you can expect to see lots of different subject matter coming but all based on the same principles of texture, depth and abstract styled bases.

They are created on a 40mm frame wrapped in the highest quality canvas, with a triple varnish coat and gallery finished edges painted and finished as such. A “canvas” really has 5 faces. If this piece caught your eye but it’s not quite the right size or colours, or you would like something more personal, do reach out and let’s discuss possibilities.

Mumma Bear and spunky wife Wendy is CFO and big cheese. To add to the family vibe, since the world was rocked by covid, both of my offspring (Franksy and Franketta as I call them) have become fulltime understudies, having “helped out Dad” during their school years. Under my watchful eye, they are both now collaborating with me at the highest level.

Other stuff at a glance:
# One of Australia’s Top Selling Artists.

# Over 6000 pieces sold.

# Gallery Exhibited and partnered.
# Collaborates with many talented designers.
# Works used on TV shows such as The Block and Selling Houses Australia.
# I don’t use artshop frames. Canvases personally manufactured to my Spec.

Finishing:
Most paintings arrive ready to install with hardware installed on the rear. It is recommend that the really really big ones, some of the heavier pieces and some of the specialist pieces, such as pallets, be installed by a professional hanger. This is cheaper than you may think and would be in the $150 to $250 range. We have partners in most areas that can be recommended if you need help. If you would like more information, just ask away.

Freight and delivery:
We package the paintings securely in twin walled, reinforced, CUSTOM MADE “Franko” cartons, with additional protective inserts & of course the painting is wrapped in bubble wrap and often felt, for rub protection. We are the consummate professionals in all that we do. Our trusted freight partners are TNT, TOLL and DHL. Often with larger pieces and local deliveries, we arrange direct delivery with our own driver.

Insurance and returns:
All paintings are sent fully insured and you have to love your art! If you don’t, do please reach out as I offer free returns.

Finally, all works come with a Certificate of Authenticity and free hugs and kisses!

Happy Trails!
