“Florida Eclipse” is a new southern landscape. Two 56×22 gallery wrap panels making this 56×45″ when hung. It is a mix of impressionistic stylings, bright colors next to muted colors and swirling brushstrokes give more interest.
This next weekend I will be traveling with some artist friends to the beautiful island of St. Kitts in the West Indies. We plan on painting plein air daily, enjoying the island and its residents. Last year we had so much fun and produced many fun tropical paintings.
Last week, I started a grouping of rather small paintings 12×24 and 10×20″ with a base of modeling plaster. I then added heavy strokes of acrylic paints with brushes and palette knives. The quick light strokes brushing over the raised plaster is actually fun. Try it!!
Since these little landscapes were made up from memories, I had the freedom to invent and imagine.
While in California, I painted this semi abstract painting of palms onto a quarter inch hard wood panel. It is 12″ square and will have a box white frame that floats the panel.
