New painting off the easel today. "On The Wind", 24X30" Oil on canvas. $950 in a nice dark wood/linen liner frame. This one began as a response to the beauty of this woman's face. As it progressed I felt the impulse to paint more fluidly and the resulting piece seems to imply expectation and anticipation with an element of mystery. If you or someone you know would be interested in purchasing this oil painting I would be happy to deliver and help you with hanging it on site.
I have been focusing on the beauty of the brushstroke as well as finding beauty in my subjects lately. I am moving into a season of figurative work and will explore different ways of manipulating my tools to teach myself to paint simply but in a manner that is more sophisticated than my present work. Time will tell the story.
My inspiration comes from the great Spanish painter Sorolla. I have so much to learn..
"My Tribe" opened at the Summerland gallery with a wonderful reception. Plenty of friends and visitors. I will post a video of the opening soon but for now here are a couple of images I shot just before my artists talk on friday.
Have a great June!
