"Daybreak" by Jack Providenti
"Daybreak" by Jack Providenti 8 x 10 inches oil on canvas
The sun breaks into the sky at the St. Petersburg Marina in Florida. I arrived before sunrise and waited for the morning light to color the sky. When it did I was ready with my camera and took several photos as reference for this painting.
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.
