Fan Out

Fan Out 30x36 Oil on Linen Framed $2700

This painting can be viewed during my solo show at the Spiral Press Cafe, adjoining the Northshire Bookstore in Manchester, VT from November 18, 2009 through the holiday season. Please stop in if you happen to be in the area, look at the work, purchase your favorites, and leave comments on the blog! If you would like to purchase this before the show, please email me:

As you can see I almost covered every bit of the beautiful deep yellow (see October 5th post) with which I had toned this canvas. But still the painting was directed by that tone, as well as the desire to convey the dance of the light - on the boats, on the surface of the water, on the sand and seaweed beneath.

thanks for looking and please comment if you like.

I liked the gold. It made me think of the gold rush and becoming rich quick. But this water is filled with color and is beautiful. You do water so well.

I love this. Thanks for your vote on the white carnation painting. It's always dangerous to post works in progress, since no one but the artist, knows where it's supposed to be going!

Sorry Mel, although I do think in person the gold may still be a presence under the water.

Thanks Mary. And it is fun to take risks. :)
