Soar! The First Painting of 2019

My first painting and intention of the year!  Soar!

Big Ben

Finally completed, I present to you The Elizabeth Tower, renamed in 2012 to mark the diamond jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II. Big Ben, is the largest bell within it and weighs 16 tons.  

 

 

I’ve decided to add Big Ben to the Dining room.  🙂 Here are a couple of in-progress photos.

Day 1

Brewster, NY- A History of Now

The first painting completed in 2018. This is oil on canvas and the title is “The Last Customer” It is of Bob’s Diner in #Brewster, NY. I’m painting some of the buildings that will be demolished when they build our new town center in a couple of years, as we will not see their like again. Small theaters, 50’s diners, and Pool Halls.

 

 

Brewster, New York is a village within the Town of Southeast.  They are going to renovate the village in late 2018-19.   They will knock down several historic buildings, including a 50’s Diner (Bob’s Diner) a Pool Hall and the old Cameo Theater.  I plan to paint them each before they are gone.

Here is an in-progress sketch of Bob’s Diner interior.  I will add more works as I go along

Light and Nature

This series is an exploration of light in nature.

Beyond

Farther

A Soft Vision

Lately I’ve been playing with paint to express emotion and a softness of vision. I rather like how these pieces are coming out. Take a look.

I call this one Beyond and it was inspired by a train ride through the Alps.

I worked another version of it in “Memories on a Train” below.

I liked how Beyond came out, but I admit I love color. So I did “Farther”.

I continued in this vein with a slightly more fanciful topic in “Enchanted”.

I think I’m going to explore this “soft view” approach for a year or so and see where it takes me.

The Trickster in Love

After painting the owls, I was wondering what to paint. I had a vague idea that I wanted to do something with a fox. Again I stood in my backyard pondering several different ideas when a fox ran across the yard! I’ve never seen a fox in my backyard before! It happily jumped at the rear bushes, snagged a tasty sparrow and was off! Poor little sparrow. This spring, as a result of a smaller sparrow populations I had a bumper crop of raspberries and even native New York blue birds nesting in the yard.

The fox is also known as a trickster. So beware the gifts he may bring.

But I digress. Without futher ado, here is The Trickster in Love.
