It’s been a while since I have shown any of my paintings at Artpromotivate. In this post, I thought I would display some of what I have been up to regarding my painting for 2013.
These are two past articles featuring my own art:
That second article actually shows some in progress versions of some paintings displayed below.
There are certain themes I have been working on – the fishery, imagery of Newfoundland, and also often underlying psychological elements in each artwork.
Please let me know what you think in the comments below this post. Thanks!
Big Catch – Oil on canvas – 16 x 20” - 2013
Big Catch originated from two separate source photographs of my own. The image on the left of the man holding the huge cod was photographed during the food fishery in Newfoundland, this past summer. Cod were very plentiful this summer and many of them were very large! The 3 boats came from a separate photograph taken two years ago during the same yearly cod fishery.
Capelin in a Fishtub
Capelin in a Fish Tub – Oil on canvas – 16 x 20” – 2013
A client wanted a painting identical to my larger painting Capelin Run. Since I dislike the idea of creating exact copies, I mentioned that I would create something similar - using the same palette, composition and subject. I also wanted to create something unique which stands on its own.
Fish Entangled – Oil on canvas – 16 x 20” - 2013
Fish Eyes – Oil on canvas – 16 x 20” – 2013
Fish Monument – Oil on canvas – 16 x 20” – 2013
I think of the imagery in this painting as a monument to the failed fishery of Newfoundland. Fish stocks are depleted and many fish-plants are closed.
