"Lacey Things" is another from my "still Life Jazz" series of paintings. This series focuses on inventions based on the concept of a floral still life - but the creations are fanciful. Each one projects energy and fun. This painting looks great on its own and also looks fantastic when paired with compatible pieces of the same size from this series. Look for more 8x10's from as I post them over time. These works are very easy to frame with an off-the-shelf-frame from a framing store.
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.
