Dog Beach by Carmen  Cilliers

Canvas Prints

Available to buy on…

Acrylic On Canvas – Pure and simple… no mixed media – I thought it was time to head back to basics, it iss afterall the new year, so a fresh start! I did this today, along with Balmy Days – they are for Ebay – what I call ‘money spinners’.


Measurements: 31cm x 41cm on gallery wrapped canvas.

If you are interested in purchasing the original please bubblemail me – unlike my other originals you can have this one for a bargain!


My paintings are an exploration and expression of my personal emotions, interpersonal relationships and recollections of childhood; the human condition; and also influenced by my travel experiences and their influences on my senses as well as inspiration drawn from current fashion and pop culture.

My aim is to represent my world and express, with my chosen media the emotional moments, quirky twists and often humorous encounters of life.

    Thanks Termite… I find the time… no I make the time. I make my own living by painting and selling paintings, holding art workshops, and working part time as a creative development assistant with disabled people, yes, I study too, that seems to suffer most… but if you love art, and you love creating, like anything there is a price to pay!

    It has an unnerving double emotion where the figure appears to be doing a dreamy swan dive right out of the picture while the dog has a startled “oh shit, we’re falling” look. Very narrative but I’d expect it to have a pair with just sand and water…a here and gone pair.

    Artstruggle – I had to read your comment twice, but I just figured out what you mean… another painting… same size… just sand and water – easy done! Thanks for the advice I hadn’t thought of that.

    Thanks Mariette!

    You’re so clever Carmen : ) I love this…from the intricate detail in her dress…to the deep blue of the sea. Well done!
