At the Bakery

There is an excellent bakery just around the corner from our place in Valencia.  A friendly young woman frequently serves us.  So I got the idea of putting her into a scene like Monet’s Bar at the Folies scene.  This is what I have done here.  I consider this a study for a larger piece.

Close up

We move in on the eye, it’s shimmering reflections, fluidity, how it conveys awareness.

Peg in Scene from ‘Water’

I took a scene from The Shape of Water and placed fantasy images of my wife into the scene.  It’s moody yet comforting simultaneously.

Couple in Vilnius

 

Among the notable things in Vilnius, the capitol of Lithuania,  are the spires and the architecture, featured in the background of this painting.  Lithuania is nominally a Roman Catholic country, with 75% of the population purportedly members.  However the statistics show that half the population does not believe in the Christian deity.  I have portrayed the irony of this apparent contradiction through the unusual placement and distortion of the spires, which serve at once to unite and divide the couple.
