Provincetown Gathering!


'Dinghies' pastel, 16x20
I'm about to make the trip to Provincetown, MA to paint with a distinguished group of very, very good artists; I'm proud to be included in the group.

If you missed my comment before, "Dinghies" is one on my all time favourite paintings. I love it. :-)

That is a beaut! Great work from top to bottom.

PS. Were you in San Miguel with Scott Burdick? He's a friend.

An art form is the specific shape, or quality an artistic expression takes. The media used often influence the form. For example, the form of a sculpture must exist in space in three dimensions, and respond to gravity. The constraints and limitations of a particular medium are thus called its formal qualities. To give another example, the formal qualities of oil painting are the canvas texture, color, and brush texture. The formal qualities of video games are non-linearity, interactivity and virtual presence. The form of a particular belstaff jackets outlet is determined by the formal qualities of the media, and is not related to the intentions of the artist or the reactions of the audience in any way whatsoever as these properties are related to content rather than form.
