At home: New World Island

At home: New World Island

Oil Painting (30" x 40")

This painting is about the movement of oil paint on the canvas as a means to fulfill an image. There is a controlled yet hurried hand-held brush that speeds along with my imagination.  This landscape is as much from the imagination as it is representational. 

I did a photo shoot in the rocky area of New World Island.  Out of those pictures information from only three pictures were used for the painting.  The experience is what sticks with you: overlapping hills broken by the ocean then rocks rise again to form another island.

Also, the play of light on the water stands out. The subtle changes grey to white to blues while the coves trap the light and the water becomes deep and dark.
