Fine art of Lawrence R. O'Leary Jr.

Month: March 2018

April Contest win a $95.00 Glicee

There was such a great response from my first “guess the title of the artwork” in March that i have just finished another painting to name.

Click on the link to Face Book on this page and make your guess. Read to the bottom of this post to get all riddles and clues.

One guess per day. A new clue is provided each day on this posting page. You must make your guess on Facebook.

The painting can be viewed here and on facebook.

Now for the first clue. The painting is a title that is six words long. I will provide one letter to each word each day and often a clue as to the composition of the work. This composition does depict the chosen name and once discovered you will be amazed. I created this as I am fairly confined to my studio as I battle this cancer and go through radiation. I have to stay away from social gatherings because of being vulnerable to getting sick from social interaction with cold and flu. It was all cut out in Feb of 2017 but came back. I came up with this contest in March to stay connected and have some fun.

Good luck my friends but more importantly have fun.

March Contest Winner!!

Here is the happy winner Bernie Fournier as I award him the prize. Congratulations Bernie

Titled ” Voyage of the Merchant Mariner”  A painting about my grandfather James O’Leary who was a merchant mariner from Ireland to Boston.

Bernie tried very hard to guess the clues by reading all of the information on the web site and actively trying to guess each days clues. On the day of the last clue (which provided the first letter of the first word) he was up quite early to catch the next clue. Bernie and his wife Lisa love the piece and were passionate about winning the Signed Giclee print #1 to live in their home. I only make 25 prints of each original so if anyone wants to purchase one visit the store on my site. $95.00. The framed original in oil is also available for $1,260.00

If you see Bernie congratulate him, he really worked hard on this contest.

I am currently working on another painting and will have a new “name the fine artwork” in April. Visit my site regularly for the next contest, updates, shows and new works. Have fun and thank you to all who enjoy my art.
