Islands Painting

Art - by Desmond - Islands - May 22 - 2019 cropped

I had thought that this painting was “blogged about” in the past year, but I cannot find any blog about it in the files. What I did find was the post on the art website of artbydesmond [dot] com – [the dot reference is so the hyper link is not created here.]
This is what was said there ……
58 x 92 inches – Oil and Acrylics on canvas – November 2018.
Update: May 8, 2019.
Painted for a previous a client, on my personal whim, who liked it but had several reservations, the crux of which turns out to be the size. “It is too large.” So, that is quite all right and while one cannot argue unknown points, I am reminded of the movie Amadeus and at the end of a symphony, the king told Mozart it was too long and to just … “cut out a few notes.” More later on this painting.

Now, November 5 .. 2019
Over at the Etsy shop of Art by Desmond, is the latest listing of the “Islands” painting. This done in oils and oil based enamel on latex sized wide duck cotton canvas, 58 inches high x 92 inches wide. That is 8 feet wide. The price last year was $2,018.00. It is now $1,385.00.
A real deal !!!!!

New Painting

Art - Harvesting 1963 - 2013-06-28Last Saturday this new painting was taken to the Chris Sorenson Studio for the $1000 Mural Competition and Public Art theme “juried” show. This entry is 48 x 48 inches and is painted with oil based enamels on canvas. It is titled “Harvesting 1963” and this scene depicts, partly, my high school summers. I have no idea the response it will get, although Sorenson liked it as he said he drove tractor on the Giffin Ranch.
Coming in two days …… the author interview with Kristen Elise, PhD.
