Auction Ends Tomorrow • Original Oil Twomey




Auction Ending Tomorrow!

This is an original, hand painted oil painting by internationally award winning artist Catherine Twomey. The positive and negative tension between the strawberry and eggplant are reemphasized in the lock. I could not resist painting such a gorgeous composition. The eggplant was a special challenge and I was finally pleased with how it turned out.

Please NOTE: FRAME INCLUDED! This painting is professionally framed, at cost, in a lovely satin black finish floater frame with a buffer-through reddish undertone finish at the outer edges and a speckled gold fillet detail on the inside.  Visit for further details of their framing services.

My artwork has been featured at the world renowned TED (Technology, Education and Design) conference (TED MED in San Diego, on huge high definition screens throughout the exhibition center). I recently won the nationally acclaimed ArtInPlace competition in Virginia which placed a 12' X 24' mural on aluminum of my work, now seen by thousands of commuters daily. 

Two museums currently house my art: The William H. Benton Museum in Connecticut, andThe LLoyd Museum in Cincinnati, Ohio. It was a great honor to be asked to exhibit and I continue to add to their collections. Speaking of collections, my work is a part of hundreds of private collections worldwide.
Fine art influencers include Georgia O'Keefe, da Vinci, Rembrandt and Degas. I look to their struggles and triumphs, and their unflinching persistence.
