Painting in quietude

It’s been pretty quiet around here this week. Most people are probably out of town to see their families for Easter and Passover. My better half is away on a fishing trip. So, I took advantage of the respite to paint, working on three paintings alternately. While one was drying, I worked on another. My work table is a mess but it is a studio, after all. I only clear up when expecting guests. Bliss!

No Apologies: a slideshow of my art

I just created a slideshow of my art below:

Why No Apologies? My styles and themes are so varied that people say my art portfolio looks like a group exhibition. Most galleries show artists with a common theme and a consistent style. I prefer to paint what I feel and sometimes challenge myself to try a genre I haven’t done in the past. The common threads that bind my art are the vivid colors and a “need to convey a mood or tell a story”.

My dentist’s office – Part II

The rest of the paintings in my dentist’s clinic are as follows:

The Old Oak (Oil on Canvas, 17″ x 21″ including frame)

My dentist’s office

I sat in my dentist’s waiting room yesterday and was surrounded by my own paintings. More than a year ago, I made arrangements for some of my paintings to be hung in his clinic but I still get surprised with each visit.

The Brook

The Brook is the biggest attention-drawer, according to the office. No wonder, it is a 30″ x 40″ canvas with lovely autumn colors.

Benguerra Coast

Benguerra Coast is the second most popular piece among the lot. It is a 16″ x 20″ oil painting (including frame).
