Fine Artist in Virginia

My work is mainly figurative, but also abstract. Ceramic with mixed-media.
Acrylic on canvas or paper; of the figure or pure non-objective. Size ranges from 8 x 8 to 30 x 40 inches.
Ancient Japanese method of firing, these pieces have unexpected color. They are wall sculptures, vessels, animals. The drama of the black background is from the smoking of the combustibles in the firing process.
Peter Haikalis, 1919-2014
The apple doesn’t fall too far from the tree – these are original paintings by my father, Peter Haikalis, who was a WWII veteran, an advertising executive, and who passed away in January 2014. I have literally hundreds of his works on paper of female and male nudes; and many abstract expressionist works on stretched canvas. Check back again for uploaded images.
