In August 2009 I visited my nephew in Tamraght, Morocco.
We made a mad dash up the coast to Essaouira for a 48 hour trip. During that short time I took
over 650 photos.
That was a lot easier than finally getting to translate
some of that experience into paint.
These two are the first of a series. They are both acrylic on paper – images are approximately 17″x27″.
AVAILABLE: $600.00 – Unframed.
The scenic artist in me can’t resist architectural detail. I painted this capital in September as an exercise in tonality.
The reference is a photograph I took several years ago at the National
Cathedral in Washington, DC.
Although I don’t anticipate making a series of detail images, I will always
have an eye to interesting architecture and you will see evidence of such in
the near future.
I thought I’d already posted this project. Apparently not.
So, catching up – My wonderful, long-term-client-turned-friend up and moved
to a new house after we’d finally finished all the work in her previous one.
I think she planned that just so we wouldn’t run out of projects.
This one exceeded our collective vision. Standing back and looking at it
completed gave us both goose-bumps. We’d been planning this for months and
knew we were going to love it, but seeing the results was still a thrill.
The over-scale damask stencil was custom designed and cut by me 🙂
