"Haunted" by Jack Providenti
"Haunted" impressionism by Jack Providenti oil on canvas 10 x 20 inches
I named this painting "Haunted"...10 x 20 inches.I'm sometimes certain that the mountain forest is haunted. This piece might reflect that with it's filtered light and dark shadows. There's an "under-painting" of an oil wash which delineates the dominant shapes. The rest of the piece is done with palette knives. This process allows me to fully express the uniqueness of the ancient Ponderosa Pines.
I paint to celebrate nature and to honor people who are celebrating life. Art, wether it is practiced or purchased, will heal & inspire, it will reveal the extraordinary in what previously seemed ordinary. It also helps us re-experience precious moments. I'm using the skills I've learned in order to inspire an emotional response. I emphasize the play of natural light In my paintings and use color generously combined with brush strokes that capture fleeting and treasured moments. I love to paint outdoors as well as in my studio. Being actively immersed in nature contributes to a soulful expression of her many moods. My seascapes and portraits have been hailed by patrons as stunning, vivid and emotionally stirring.
