'Burning The Candle At Both Ends" is another painting in my "Still Life Jazz" series of works. Each one features fanciful flowers. It projects, fun, energy and a contemporary whimsical feel. This 8x10 piece is quick and easy to frame in an off-the-shelf frame from a framing store. It looks great by itself or in a cluster of similar sized works from this series. Look for other 8x10 sized paintings from this series on this site. I'll be posting many more as this is a very popular size.
I'm Donald Bruce Wright, a fine artist based in the Santa Cruz Mountains of Northern California. You'll see works here from me created in several media, including oil on canvas as well as smaller pieces made with water-based paints on watercolor paper. The paintings displayed on Vango are from my "Still Life Jazz" series. Like a jazz player who takes a musical standard and then interprets it in new ways, I create paintings that are based on an art world standard: the still life. Real life and its structure serve as a point of departure while remaining loosely recognizable in the final work. Creating these bold energetic floral inventions within the traditional conceptual format of a still life allows the work to project the contradictory sense of being somehow familiar yet fresh. Although my painting style is self-taught, I received formal grounding in art by earning a Master of Fine Arts degree in 2007.
