Pastel Palm Grove – Featured Art Print

I created this art print using a colored pencil and chalk technique. This technique uses strong drawing lines with softer chalk strokes filling in. The colors are in pastels, giving it a soft modern look.

The setting is a grove of palm trees in a local park near our home here in Arizona. It reminds me of a similar palm grove I came across on the big Island of Hawaii along the shoreline. I love the look of a group of palm trees creating a small “forest”. The fronds create a shaded canopy from the hot day sun and invite you into the palms to relax and enjoy the afternoon.

I have only used this particular technique on a few of my art prints and welcome any feedback. Thoughts?

Fishing Village Harbor – Featured Art Print

 

Fishing Village Harbor another one of my art prints where I used a fauvism technique creating this scene. This technique uses bold abstract brush strokes and surreal colors creating a modern and contemporary look. To highlight the quaint architecture of the buildings, I created more detail in the homes, docks and waterfront area as the focal point. This particular art print depicts a New England fishing village and harbor. Thoughts?

Simple Beauty – Featured Art Print

All of us on this journey we call life, experience pain, suffering and disappointment…it is an aspect of the human condition. We also experience, joy, love and peace….it is also part of the human condition. Anyone that follows my work and blog know that I try and stay focused on the positive aspects of life. It is a single go around, so why waste time dwelling on the negative. To me, this art print serves as a reminder for all of us to stop and smell the roses.  Thoughts?

I Quiet My Mind – Featured Art Print

 

I’m featuring this art print this week for a couple of reasons. First and foremost is the prayer on this print and secondly the print was created from one of my many hikes in the Pacific Northwest.

My wife and I have been blessed with three wonderful daughters and have spent the past weekend in the Seattle area participating in the wedding of our youngest and the last of the three to get married. The ceremony was incredible and my third walk down the aisle with one of my girls. The time we spent with family on both sides is priceless and I am so grateful for my siblings and their children flying in for this celebration. It was an incredible weekend and gives me pause to reflect on how blessed we are.

Mrs. T and I got married in college, waited until our late 20’s to start a family and had the joy of raising three girls (I had to readjust my communication style as I grew up with two brothers and one sister…my poor sister). The time goes by so quickly and has made us very thankful for our family and friends who have blessed our lives. I continue to give thanks for the blessings of life.

May this find you and yours well, happy and blessed…even when the road of life gives you twists and turns.  Kirt

New England Beach Strolling – Featured Art Print

 

In keeping with a summer theme this week, I am featuring New England Beach Strolling. I created this art print using an impasto style technique. This technique uses bold brush strokes and bright colors creating a bold oil look.

This particular wall art print depicts people strolling on a beach. The setting is the coastal region of New England along Martha’s Vineyard.  Thoughts?

Bedrock in Fauvism – Featured Art Prints

This is a follow-up to a post I did in October of 2015 (The Flintstones Town of Bedrock). I shared excerpts from a photo shoot I had done of a tourist attraction south of the Grand Canyon which is a recreation of the town of Bedrock made famous by the Flintstones cartoon characters. That post starts with this quote: “This post is a fun one for me….I haven’t a clue what I will ever do with any of these shots, but I had a great time taking them.” 

I truly didn’t think I would do anything with those shots, but middle of last year I came across them again and decided I would see what they would look like presented in a more abstract manner by using the fauvism technique I work with on other prints. The final result is the five art prints I have attached.

I like the bright surreal colors of this style along with the abstract interpretation of the subject matter. Considering the surreal look of the structures, it all seemed to come together as an appropriate marriage. Thoughts?

Evening Sunset Along The Walk – Featured Art Print

Evening Sunset Along the Walk is a wall art print I created using an abstract watercolor technique of an evening sunset along the walkway. This technique uses abstract shapes and bold colors to create a clean modern look.

The setting is Carlsbad, California along the coast highway. Carlsbad is located in the northern part of San Diego County and is a popular beach town. In this particular area, there is a sidewalk up on the bluff overlooking the beach and surf of the Pacific Ocean. It’s a great place to take a sunset stroll and enjoy the cool ocean breeze. In this print, the sun is just getting ready to dip into the ocean for the night. The setting is beautiful with not only the sunset, but also the palm trees in the foreground of this print. Thoughts?
