Ready to Hang
A friend helped us find a lovely home to rent in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico. When we arrived at the home, we were greeted by a lovely bouquet of fresh flowers from our friend Cherie. That bouquet was the starting point for this painting. Then the process of invention began.
As with all the paintings in my "Still Life Jazz" series, this painting was created to project energy, life and fun.
The painting is framed and ready to enliven any environment in which it is hung. The piece is framed in a simple handsome black frame which sets off the picture perfectly.
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.
