Painting in Grenada--heart of the art

The rainy season was long--inspired these "wet" paintings.

 Coconuts--Bright Shiny Day   36" x 36" Oil

So eventually it stopped raining, and I could use oil paints again.

The last piece in this series "Coconuts - Bright Shiny Day" is very inspiring to me. One of the first things I notice is the lines from the upper leaves of the tree which mesh with the somewhat sporadic nature of the lines coming off of the actual coconuts themselves in the middle of the painting. There is also a very profound line which the viewer can trace to the middle of the piece from the coconut tree trunk itself all the way to the top which extends out of the painting. Geometrically my favorite aspects of this work are the leaves at the top which, combined with the lines from the tree holistically help draw the viewer into the middle where the light and dark shades of the coconuts seems to play off of one another. I am so thankfull that the rain let up so that you could paint this one. Thanks for sharing the entire series.
