This one’s my first installment of Vancouver, Stanley Park images. I’m fond of this one because I want to go up those stairs and get into the magic forest. Hey! Wait a minute. I did that!
Today, a look back at my Sydney stay in December 2008. This image is from downtown Sydney, where Victorian meets with Futuristic every other corner. I just loved the statue and its casual, relaxed pose in the middle of Sydney’s business hubbub.
Arizona desert life at its best. This green barked tree makes for wonderful contrast with the deep blue of a late afternoon sky.
This image is much more impressionistic than my usual work. It has more to do with feeling than with detail. I wanted to convey the sheer power that exhudes from this place, so I used bolder and wilder strokes than usual. I also gave it a bluish/purplish tint because this is the colour I see a lot in special places in Mexico, as if Spirit manifested as a tint over the landscape.
This image is from my Montreal collection of images.
This one’s a take on Vermeer. I’m afraid I’m very far from the master, but I enjoyed painting this one all the same. As usual, thumbnails below access a jpeg and detail view. Thanks for visiting.
Another one of my “Nature Overcomes Man” images. Stumps grow shoots and start over. Wonderful visual of life overcoming cement. I hope you like it.
Today’s image is from an inner courtyard, in a Mexican hacienda. The crossed paths, with the cross in the background, were just too inviting for me to resist. As usual, both 600 x 400 and detail jpegs below. Thanks for visiting.
