I am a self taught artist specialising in oils. I have always had an affinity with art, as a child crayons and pencils were the most important items in my toy box. However, eventually, work and family became the most important aspects in my life and art took a back seat. During the intervening years I became interested in computer generated imagery which helped maintain my interest in art.
2009 brought the realisation of mortality with the diagnosis of Prostate cancer, a three month post radical prostatectomy convalescence from work brought fear and boredom. However with foresight and generosity from my Daughters, (who bought me new paints and brushes in October 2009) encouraged me to remain positive and provide distraction from my predicament! I promptly set about reclaiming my easel from the attic and set up my studio in the confines of my shed that I built from scratch a few years earlier. I now have this almost desperate desire to paint, “it’s almost as if I’m trying to make up for lost time"!
Landscapes are a favourite subject, although I consider my self eclectic in my choice of style and method
My art has become a saviour to me…I cant live without it!
Take a couple of minutes to look at the great impressionist Vincent van Gogh, don't get me wrong here I'm not comparing my work with his, just the situation! Poor old Vincent never really made a penny for himself apart from the help he received from his loyal brother Theo. Today you couldn't buy a scraping from Starry Night with the proceeds from the sale of your Victorian three storey townhouse in Greater London. Sure you may have to wait a generation or two to rack up the spondulics, but hey, that's what investment is all about!
On a more serious note, I would really love you to consider purchasing my work because you liked it and that you considered it's value as a contemporary piece of art in it's own right. Maybe you are looking for an affordable, original painting that compliments your new décor, lets face it, if you do live in a Victorian townhouse in Surrey, you probably can't afford a van Gogh, but you can afford to invest in an original and contemporary work from my studio.
When you make a purchase, each original piece will include it's own provenance document guaranteeing it's authenticity.
On the corporate side of things you may like to consider purchasing the image rights either for an indefinite period or a fixed term, maybe you could use the image or part of it for a commercial campaign or corporate reporting background. Maybe you don't quite see the image you are looking for, if that is the case please contact me via the “CONTACT DAVID” page www.davidfitchart.co.uk/contactform.html. I promise you I will give your enquiry my full and undivided attention.
