Painting: Oil on Wood.
This painting is from a series of small landscapes in which I explore one of my favorite places on earth, Sand Harbor, a truly amazing state park near Incline Village, Nevada at Lake Tahoe.
Stylistically, I have always been drawn to classical realism. However, I also have a great appreciation for the concept of “truth to the medium”. The truth of my medium is that I am using paint to represent something I’ve seen and felt. While I strive to be almost photorealistic in select focal points, I also want to juxtapose it with the reality that it is not a photograph, it is, in fact, paint. Moreover, that paint was applied in layers with a brush over weeks and sometimes months. I try to let my finished paintings tell the story of my artistic process.
This painting will be an addition to your collection that will stay vibrant for many lifetimes to come due to the precautions taken before and during its production. It was painted on triple acrylic primed MDF board, ensuring the surface will not degrade and will not be vulnerable to puncture damage. Only the finest professional grade archival oil paint was used. It was varnished by hand with archival and removable picture varnish, so that it can be cleaned easily without damaging the work.
