A juicy Puniho in the desert of Trade-Me



I think these paintings are beautiful.
They are all in thick oil paint on board, and are mostly quite small.
The attention to light and composition in these reminds me of the C18th century French painter Chardin, who also used the pictorial technique of placing the edge of the table in the foreground, as seen in this painting 'Dandelion in a green bottle'.

It is always nice when a painter really obviously enjoys paint. The thick globs and brustrokes that the artist has left shows their revelment in the medium, in a lovely understated way.

They are not going for nearly enough.
Go and put in a bid!

Go to www.trademe.co.nz and search for 'Puniho'

We have been positive about trade me artists before, but 99.9% of the stuff on there is shit (In our opinion of course).Manukarose is a prime example.

Looks like an artex ceiling. Ghastly. The marbles...not bad...maybe.

reporting manukarose to trademe? Bit petty.

the previous one - Gustav Klimt? You're kidding, tell me you are. It's a copy of a Quality Street advertisement from the 1960's. A bad one at that.

It's better than alot of the other crap, doc, trustme.

As for reporting that sad lady, I wouldn't bother. It's none of my business.

And that post was only a lure to fish out one of the trademe artists that hangs out here and occasionally makes comments. I snared the wrong catch as it turns out.
