My Vision of Peace
Most of my work over the years has been autobiographical and dark. After a visit to St. Bart, where I was stunned by the natural beauty (and lack of commercial development), I wanted to create a painting that celebrates nature and tranquility. The white bird is a universal symbol of peace.


Medium
This is a large oil, acrylic, oil pastel and India ink painting on wood. Instead of painting the bird white, I used sand paper to remove the blue paint of the sky, to reveal the white of the gesso underneath. It created a more detailed effect of feathers.

The image submitted is a detail of the full painting (in order to have it square, for your purposes).

Love the colors, contrast and (faux) "naif", painting style! The kind of peacefulness one finds in a Gaugin painting.
