Van Caerndow's "World Traveler" Paintings on Glass at the OZLAND Art Gallery - March 2014

"I paint on glass as a window to the worlds in my imagination"

Van Caerndow has developed a style of painting on glass using a French water based craft paint called Pebeo, which is designed for glass and ceramics. After painting is done he bakes the glass for 20 minutes at 325 degrees. From these finished works he signs, and numbers Giclee prints at up to 400% of the actual size.

In Second Life, Van is best known as a painter of portraits of fellow avatars on glass and he brings scanned versions in world. In rl Van is Phil Strang and as much as he loves doing SL portraits and SL scenes, he does so much more. Still lifes, westerns, sports, landscapes and real life portraits as well. In this exhibit you will see a selection of Van's travels in SL and in RL.

Visit the OZLAND Art Gallery for the month of March and make sure you take home the free gift that Van has made specially for guests who visit this exhibit!
