New Greek Village Series

Share on Facebook

My village scenes consist of plaster/sand mix on canvas, with the usual acrylic finish... These pieces have always sold well... I miss the simplicity of the Greek way of life...so recently completed a few more paintings...

Misty Greek Village was painted in 2011, but never completed to my satisfaction... I touched up the coloring yesterday and am pleased with the final result!

The blue depicted in the lighter colored pieces has rather a light teal/grey than blue hue in real life... The night scene looks pretty much as depicted inthe photo!

New Work - April 2013

sold

 

Have at last time to paint again... a new piece Blue Shipwreck 40"x30" (multi-media/acrylic on canvas) is a toned down version of the usually turbulent skies I usually enjoy painting...

Dead Sea Sentinel 30"x40" (multi-media/acrylic on canvas) is a retouched earlier work that I thought lacked life... it now has more vibrant earthy/orange hues...

Reclaimed by Nature

This experimental work, 30"x36" acrylic/multi-media on canvas, depicts the return of man-made objects to nature. The remnants of a rusted wreck returning to natural elements.

Metaphorically the world as we know it returns to the greater whole... The great unknown! My intention was to juxtapose structure and formlessness... All structure exists in a greater realm...  

The camera seemed incapable of capturing the teal tones of the piece... Another skill-set to develop! :-) 

Rusted Wrecks on the Shore

Share on Facebook

Ater a slow start this year, I am working on several pieces that feature rusted wrecks on the shore. While the theme of nature reclaiming man made objects continues to fascinate me, the popularity of these paintings has prompted me to consider an exhibition dedicated to this subject later this year! 

The darker piece, Wreck at Sunset, 48"x36" features a piece of rusted/encrusted metal found on the beach, intended to depict a decaying wreck that has merged into the landscape. I have incorporated sea-sand/pebbles (from wherever I spotted the metal pieces) into the textured foreground. The sunset/sea background derives from my imagination.   

The second, Wreck in the Mist, 40"x20" attempts to depict the pristine isolation of a wreck as an integral part of the landscape. The rusty hulk has no toxicity left...  

The third, Fiery Wreck 30'x40", fourth Wreck at Dawn 30"x30" & fifth Wreck - Afternoon Sky 14"x14'are similar in concept/construction... Capturing the precise moment of light emerging through cloud is always a challenge!

The sixth work High & Dry 30"x36"depicts an old wooden wreck stranded high above the receding water line... 

The smaller pieces, Partially Submerged Wreck 14x11, Wrecked Frigate 20'x20" & Beached Wreck II 14'x11"depict simplicity rather than my usual preoccupationwith the dramatic juxtaposition of nature and gradual decay...
