Original Oil Painting

Three Sail Boats on an Emerald Sea, Dorothy's memories of sailing as a young girl are captured in vibrant blue turquoise and hot pink sails. Dorothy's Fauve palette can be enjoyed at it's best in this painting, with the dramatic upsweep of colors. This elongated, horizontal format fits beautifully over a small mantle, master bed, doorway or foyer table.

About the Paintings
I paint vivid, impressionistic oil paintings that capture the feeling of being alive. My joyful paintings are inspired by my travels on trails and beaches near my home in Virginia, to Italy, France and across the U.S. My technique is done with expressive color and loose, calligraphic brush strokes, in a wet-on-wet technique known as alla prima.  Alla prima comes from Italian, literally meaning "at first attempt" and is loosely applied to any painting that is done in a direct, expressive style.  

hanging your painting

I work with a limited 6-color spectral palette, painting over a color-toned, textured canvas reminiscent of my favorite pastel papers. While my inspiration begins with the scene, each painting is also fueled with a fusion of feelings present at the moment of its conception. It might be the marriage of a child, or the birth of a grandchild, or memory of a parent. The joy of life infused with my passion for living, in good times and through trials, heals the heart in each and every painting.

 

Hanging Your Painting
All my canvases are wired and ready to hang. To help keep your painting level, I recommend hanging your painting from two picture hanging hooks spaced apart on the wall.  


Framing

My oil paintings are offered both framed and unframed.  We are happy to help you find the perfect frame for your new painting. The larger paintings, which are done on 1-1/2" canvas, are best framed in floater frames, or left to hang unframed on the wall. 

Gold Black Float Frame

Floater frames are designed to cradle deep canvases. A small gap around the painting, allows the canvas to "float" in the frame. Floater frames can be made in a variety of finishes, including gold, silver, black, white, and in any type of hardwood and stain finish. I am partial to the gold and black shown here. However, your decor may require a special touch, which we are happy to recommend.


In the Best Light
DAYLIGHT   Your painting will look different depending on the changing quality of the surrounding light. Natural ambient light will create a nice feel for your painting during daylight hours, as the colors subtly change throughout the day.

AT NIGHT   Art galleries use warm or cool-toned spot lighting to accentuate the colors in the painting, and they usually intensify the light on the painting's center of attention. You can imitate this effect in your own home by installing halogen or LED directional spot lighting in the ceiling above your painting. These lights are surprisingly inexpensive to install. An electrician can install them in a few hours. If you wish you can purchase the fixtures and bulbs yourself online. 

Use the Right Bulbs
The wrong color bulb can cause your painting to look "muddy." Use cool lighting to illuminate a painting that has predominately cool colors, and use warm lighting on a painting with mostly warm colors. 

Many houses are already fitted with recessed ceiling fixtures. These can be adapted to directional spot lighting by a handyman. Even without direct lighting on your painting, your artwork will still look good with nearby incandescent lighting. 

Enjoy!

Dorothy Fagan Collection Fine Art Prints

satisfaction guaranteedFine Art Prints are created with highly-pigmented, archival inks, rated to stay vibrant and true for a hundred years, printed on archival cotton canvas and archival rag watercolor paper.

Printed to order, please allow 3 business days for shipping.

Canvas

Works on Canvas are generally more durable than works on paper, and DO NOT require glass. Dorothy Fagan Collection fine art canvas prints are coated with a satin finish, non-yellowing UV resistant varnish for protection, durability, and long life. 

Dorothy recommends using the Artist's Canvas for most installations. For a contemporary, gallery look, your canvas print can be hung "Gallery Wrap" style, with the image mirrored on the edge of the 1.5" deep stretcher bars . If you prefer, create a create an edge frame appearance with a solid edge color to match other design elements in your room. 

If you prefer to use a frame, the frames we offer are heavy-weight solid wood construction. Contemporary in style, the black, natural, or white blend with most decors. Dorothy is personally fond of the black float frame for canvases. However, if the natural finish is preferred for your selected art piece, they are an excellent choice. If you prefer to have your own framer create a custom frame for your new artwork, Dorothy recommends the 3/4" deep stretchers, as this shallower depth will give you a wider selection of mouldings at the framer.


Watercolor Paper

Works on paper hould be framed behind glass. Dorothy uses cold press, archival watercolor paper. It is heavy weight 140 lb and creates rich saturated colors that last a lifetime, as the canvas does. 

Be sure your framer uses acid-free, archival materials to ensure no harm comes to your works on paper. Frame prints behind coonservation glass and use a lint-free cloth to clean either surface. Ultraviolet protection and anti-glare options are available. Avoid hanging in direct sunlight or in settings that are very humid.

Fine Art Prints 

Dorothy Fagan offers fine art prints directly to her fans and collectors! 

These prints are created on artist-selected canvas, with inks and finishes that Dorothy has selected because it best captures the look of her original oil paintings. These open-edition prints use the finest Epson inks available. The high-quality canvas provides a consistent and smooth semi-gloss printing surface that allows for an incredibly wide color gamut and deep rich blacks, while still offering the traditional look and feel of artist canvas. The semi-gloss finish ensures full color saturation and adds a protective varnish over the print. 

There is no embellished texture applied to the prints; the photography of the painting accurately captures the illusion of texture of a Fagan original.

Our canvas prints are available on gallery wrap stretchers, and either framed or unframed.  Our framing options include four colors of wooden floater frames, pictured below.  You can select your choice of frame from the menu above. The sizes indicated are for the canvas print only (please add 1" to the dimension for the floater frame.)
