NAPIERALA Abstract Painting "Crystal Bullet" In his recent multi-layered, panel paintings, New York abstract painter Jim Napierala has made works with ghostly underpainting beneath undulating shapes and softly reflective metallic surfaces. Napierala sees the curving shapes as figurative and f emale. We see this work as falling into a intriguing new creative form--emerging both in music and in visual arts--where the artist sets for himself very narrow perameters, then uses subtly altered iterations to expand the central theme. Please email or phone for more images or information on this painting or the artist. Buyer pays shipping and insurance.

European (Dutch?) Landscape Painting 19th Century This painting is believed to be 19th century and northern European in origin.

Please email for detail photos of these minor flaws and for a photo of the back of the canvas. Buyer pays shipping and insurance.
