There are places were the farmer's market goes on year around. The choice of vegetables is restricted in Winter but at least it is in season. In this painting i combined 2 sketches together to make an interesting scene. The woman is anxiously looking at the man's fumbling for his change. Some attractive yellow orange pumpkins on the side resonate with the man's bright yellow jacket. The purple jacket of the other man offers a contract like a vibration in the middle of a symphony. The background is non descript with a few shadows milling around. The merchant has his back to us and is just a looming figure with no face. This is the art of creating an interesting scene out of a very ordinary setting.
And remember: " Art is the best asset class right now"

This piece is painted from the live model. Right now I am exploring with very loose brush strokes. The real essence of painting is the relationship between shapes, tones, colors, textures, edges, and line. Everything else follows-including light, form, concepts. My trend is finding a poetry in figures in their ordinary life setting.

This is painted from the live model. The composition and colors are unusual in this painting. It gives a strong effect actually detracting from the figure which is strong anyway. I did not want the piece to look like a portrait but more like an interesting unsettling painting.

This is an original, not a print by Dominique Amendola.The painting is signed in front. Dominique has many paintings hanging in private museums in the US as well as in castles in France.

This work was painted from the model. You can see the detail of the face on the top image. Actually when you click on any pictures on this blog you get a larger view of it.
I am not focusing on this painting as a portrait but instead i am trying to capture the mood and character of my model. Again the style is fluid and carefree.

Another water lillie painting was in order since the first one sold. Water lillies have the advantage to be both water and plants and flowers. the water and sky have neither beginning nor end. This can be a refuge for a peaceful meditation.

Nap time

It's the afternoon and after a refreshing dip in cool waters, it's nap time. This is an impressionist painting. It just gives a quick impression of the situation and the time of the day. It is a whole art to balance the cools and warms in a painting as well as the darks and the lights. This painting is very affordable. It is a good investment in these times where the stock market is unreliable.

This is painted from the live model. in this painting, I remained very impressionistic in my style. i did not focus on the drawing or the prettiness of the model, but rather the large masses and the colors. The result is something very lively, and full of vibration.
