Paintings

I have divided my paintings into four categories. Whether its a landscape,  a person, a close-up, nature, or an abstract painting, certain elements are universal in my work. These include the light intensity which could be described as being dramatic. Also a sense of motion and energy are a constant fascination. Hope you enjoy browsing through the various categories.

Commissions

Here are examples of paintings and murals created on commission for individuals. During the initial consultation a client gets to share his/her ideas for the commissioned work.  I then share ideas and give suggestions relating to content, size, colour, impact, style etc. A price estimate can be given at this stage. The price of the mural or canvas painting will depend on the size and complexity of the image.  I then create a number of sketches which the client can later make a choice from. Then with much joint discussion the final plans are drawn up before the execution of the commissioned art work. For an estimate contact me at Olivia_o_keeffe@hotmail.com

Sue

This client liked  both initial sketches so much, that they wanted both but then in a smaller size and in such a way that the paintings could work together as a diptych.

 

Mieke's schilderij

This painting was created from a combination of images and fantasy to combine the three elements of a Dutch sand dune, climaxing wave and an exciting sky.

This painting was based on photos from the client, taken at a beach in Ireland where the client’s husband proposed.
