Ready to Hang

The title "Offshore Nightfall" speaks to the fleeting moment just before the dark while sailing just offshore. I knew this would have to be painted in a tonal range of 6 to 7. Completing a painting like this forces me to be ultra sensitive to the subtle changes in values and color. With the exception the foam from a cresting wave, the over all painting would need to be close in value. Pleased with the outcome, this painting currently hangs in our den. This oil painting is fully cured and ready to ship. "Offshore Nightfall" is ready to hang in that special place in your home.
The edges are painted and may be hung unframed or framed.

Art and creativity has always been part of who I am, but I only really started to focus on painting full time at the age of 50, following a long and successful career in advertising. As an artist, I love working in many different styles and exploring a wide range of subject matters. The beauty of online galleries lies in their eclectic art collections, and without the pressure of brick and mortar galleries dictating what I paint, I am free to paint whatever inspires me. Painting for me is an experience of falling headlong into inspiration. An image I come across will stick in my head and refuse to leave until it finds its way onto the canvas. My work is visually diverse, and there are very few painting styles that don’t inspire me in someway or another. My paintings range from abstract and cubist, to impressionistic and realistic. Most recently, I’ve been inspired by quirky and retro TV shows to tell a story through my paintings. The lighting and cinematography of these shows inspire me to paint dramatic moments in time, and I create unique, intriguing characters that are open to interpretation.
