Happy Halloween! / by VFG

A one of a kind original abstract-expressionist painting in mixed media by Vincent a Farrell (1928-2008) of an Elvira, Dravula and Wolfman pinball machine. The painting was created in 1990 and is oil paint on linen canvas. The canvas was prepared with silver and gold metal leaf the the artist painted over the metal leaf overlay. 

Strong brush strokes of pure color comprise the geometric patterning of the mechanisms of the pinball machine itself with the artist's interpretation of these Halloween characters. This painting was a significant and playful departure for the artist, although painted about 24 years ago, it displays a timeless contemporary feel.

Wishing you all a safe and fun Halloween!
