Gary Bowling Original Oil Painting Bohemian Abstract Art

This painting was purchased over 10 years ago at a Florida Art Show for $150, and now this artist has received some acclaim. I would like to pass this opportunity on to someone else to own this fun original oil painting on a painter's board that is mounted to a wood frame and painted black all around, so it can hang unframed. In fact, the artist has painted a frame of sorts around the edges. The paint is layered heavily onto this work and the more you look at it, the more you see the primitive and whimsical shapes of man and beast. The artist has signed the painting on the front (photo closeup) and large on the back of the piece in gold paint pen. It is dated '98. Dimensions: 18" wide X 24" long X 1.5" deep. The painting is hung using a stretched wire. Gary Bowling is from Bluefield, West Virginia w he is a leader in the art community, having opened Gary Bowling's House of Art, w patrons can enjoy art, music and culture. It is a 501(c)3 organization. Mr. Bowling has designed the Easter eggs for the White House one year for their annual Egg Roll. People drive to his 15,000 square foot gallery from as far away as Texas.
