etsy store: louisartworld
listing: Gone Fishing
artist: Louis Vuittonet

Louis' work follows a strong Outsider Art feel. I wonder what the white-hatted fisherman is fishing for. Certainly it's not crocodiles. That fishing pole can't withstand the weight of a croc. That fisherman is quite brave. I'm glad to see his right hand has a strong grip on the tree branch.

Seriously though, this painting has interesting use of perspective. The painting style is clearly flat. However, arrangement of the elements in the painting displays a unique depth of field. Look at the arrangement of the crocs, location of the fishing line in the water, placement of the tree and the fisherman.

Louis' bio:

Self-taught artist, been painting over forty years. My art work is in private collections in the U.S. and other countries. I paint what I feel at the moment, I hope you enjoy.
