Artist Spotlight: Van Caerndow

Van Caerndow is known as Phil Strang in RL. He paints on glass. He does about 35 new paintings a year and about 1/2 of them are portraits of SL avatars.  (ask Van for more information) Please visit his gallery and enjoy his westerns and  portraits and dozens of others.

If you ever would like a portrait done please contact him. He does commissioned portraits for 6000 lindens

Most of his paintings are smaller than 8″ by 10″ in real life and he uses a type of paint called Pebeo. The paintings are baked onto the glass and then he has them professionally scanned and brought into SL.

In addition, due to losing most of his sight in his left eye he now is also doing some experimental abstracts on canvas and foam board. He is doing splatter paintings as well as two techniques he created, Splips and Splabs. “Every eye closed is a window open”
