This Large Contemporary Original Troll Canvas Painting is naturally titled ‘Self-Portrait by Migglet’ and has been lurking in the back of my daft little mind I suppose for about two years.
My marvellous HIM bought me a toy ‘Artist Troll’ as a gift about 3 years ago, soon after I really got going with my arty fartying! The toy Artist Troll has featured online (especially on my ArtyMigglet Facebook page) over the last 3 or 4 years whenever I have won any trophies or awards and has been my mascot, ‘Mini Me’ or ‘Mini Migglet’ all along with it’s smile-making happy little crazy face!
I am really not keen on having my photo taken, so the wee Artist Troll was my ideal substitute in any photos I took and uploaded when exciting arty things were happening for me!
As a child of the 60’s, I had quite a collection of Trolls and adored them all, spending many a happy hour combing their fluorescent crazy long locks and playing imaginary games. Who knew back then, that I would one day paint a HUGE Troll on canvas?! I certainly didn’t until very recently!
I never ever plan what I am going to paint, I just get an urge and off I go! So suddenly, one day in June, I looked at my empty canvases, spotted the largest one I had tucked against a wall (didn’t have a clue what I was going to paint on it when I purchased that canvas, it just seemed like a good idea at the time!) and when I looked at that canvas I had the AHA! moment…now is the time to paint that ‘Mini Me’!!
And so I did!
I just cannot tell you what a huge buzz creating this Troll Painting was! It may be the first in a series of Troll Paintings with their vivid fluorescent hair or it may be a completely ‘one off’ I honestly don’t know!
I am still just a kid at heart and do still have a bit of a soft spot for Vintage Trolls and have turned a few little toy Trolls into lightpulls around the house…sacrilage to true Vintage Troll collectors I am sure, so do keep that confession between us, won’t you?!!
I hope my tongue in cheek ‘Self-Portrait by Migglet’ Troll Painting brings as much smiley to others’ faces as it brought to mine whilst creating this quirky piece of Contemporary Art, pure joy to create and I honestly don’t wish to part with it!
Glazed with a thin layer of Professional Gloss Medium and Varnish, this Original Troll Painting on Canvas has a medium gloss finish.
