“The Process”

Spendlove uses a method inspired by the old masters called “Glazing” in all his oil paintings. It is considered a “Lost Art” technique and is used very rarely in the world of Art. This method has been self-taught through much research, as most of the old masters took their secrets to the grave. Using this “Glazing Technique” he paints many translucent layers of color over color to create realistic skin tones, vibrant colors and the depth you see in his paintings. The layers of oils capture the light in a way that is spectacular. The skin tones in his paintings are created using at least 30 layers of glaze and takes time between layers to thoroughly dry –  most of his paintings take little over a year to create. Before painting, he searches for the most unique antique frames that suites his inspiration. Most of his frames are antiques and are sometimes modified with gold leafing and custom patinas to create a completely unified experience for connoisseur of fine arts.

Enlightenment:

As a young boy he stood tall, with courage and creativity. As he grew he was told “No” and “You can’t.” So he put himself in a box, locked with a key and hidden away from the world. Slowly he forgot about the boy in the box. The days grew long and the nights were even longer. Time passed and the taste of life became dull and flavorless. One day while walking alone through the woods he sat under a tree to rest and just listened to the silence, he drifted off and saw outside of himself and upon awakening remembered the box that was locked and wondered what was inside? “Am I in a box?” he went looking for the key… little did he know, he was the one with the key. Unlocking the child within, although sometimes frightening, may be exactly what is needed. Go within and release your inner child… it may set you free. Where is your key?

Lady Lockwood:

Oh Lady Lockwood, once beautiful, young, and in love… The war of the mind has taken her…. The war of her time took him from her. The beetle broach in her hair is the only thing Lady Lockwood has left to remember her dearly departed. Alone she walks the misty forest to drown her sorrows. The depth of her loss is counted in the bags under her eyes and written in the lines on her face. She wears black like the widow from her dreams. “Oh my beloved, I will join you”- Lady Lockwood
