Woman in a Van Gogh Field

No Comments

I joined with two other artists in Valencia to hire a model with whom we enjoyed working.  She is able to hold long poses.  Over three hours I painted her in acrylics and later added the clothing and background.   I took as inspiration for the background the landscape paintings of Van Gogh, with a twist.

Oratorio della SS. Carita di San Piedro is a small church originally connected to a secular effort to raise funds for the ransom the religious abducted by pirates. The anteroom  has outstanding frescoes by Guglielmo Borremans.  One is “The escape of St. Peter from the Prison,” the other “The Glory of St. Peter.” There is also “Francis of Assisi,” “Achaio,” “Vincenzo de ‘Paoli,” and “Paolino.”

Construction on the Romanesque Chiesa San Agostino (Chiesa di Sant’Agostino) is locally known as Santa Rita.  The building was built in the early 14th century . The rose window has 12 intersecting semi-circles and has an unusual trim that defines the entire otherwise plain facade.  The Gothic portal features arabesques (abstract patterns) and plant motifs.

In the Park in St Petersburg Russia, acrylic painting

In the Park in St Petersburg Russia is set in a popular park along the river.  The ghost-like appearance of some people really struck me.  Russian faces, a bright brass steeple, a Kupka inspired background.

A celebration of two outstanding elements of Barcelona’s culture, jazz and Gaudi’s innovative designs at Casa Mila. The main, larger section represents the architecture, an inset the club scene, based on original on site pen and ink drawings at the Palau de la Musica.
