View In A Room
Saatchi Art is pleased to offer the Painting, "Down by the Sea in Mykonos," by Mary Grden, available for purchase at $1,320 USD. Original Painting: Oil on Wood.
I am inspired by the sea and architecture on the island of Mykonos. I hope it is a painting that can be viewed often as I feel is exudes a sense of calm and yet imagination for each viewer individually. I purposely do not paint people in close up views such as this as I want the viewers' imagination to intervene and suggest they are a part of the Painting. I paint in Oils for the ability to create realistic texture on the buildings and the open time it affords me in mixing and using the paint. I like to paint what I "felt" when I captured the scene whether it is imaginary or real. Oils take longer to dry, but for me its time well spent. The subject matter is always current for its time and mine because my realistic style keeps it fresh.
