I have spent many mornings swimming and walking the beach here at Sunset Beach, Treasure Island. This painting, done from on site studies and photos, pays tribute to those magic moments. Available at http://jackprovidenti.fineartstudioonline.com
I have a thing for umbrellas. The deep reds in this one caught me. There were people there....behind that dune, you'll need to use your imagination to see them! I was plein air painting there and saw this as I was packing up, so I took a picture and painted it at home. Available at http://jackprovidenti.fineartstudioonline.com
"Honering A Love" I painted this from an old photo...my parents, married around 1938. For some reason, painting my dad was easy, but I struggled with my mom. Kept hearing her say " Jackie, my lipstick was darker, my hair had more curls!" Frued would have fun with that one!. Whatever...Here's to you Mom & Dad...love ya both. By the way....just asking.....does an oil painting such as this seem like a good gift to a mom or dad? Husband or wife?
"A Look At Love" ....and a question. This is what two people look like when they are in love. I happened to be painting on the beach when I passed by the wedding. I was touched.....took several pics and did this painting. Now I'm wondering.....would it be a good idea to offer this as a special service...to preserve moments such as this in a painting done in oils?
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.
