Oil on Canvas
I am showing paintings by Rita Spalding, now at Eye On Art.
Rita's approach to painting is fairly traditional in terms of subject and medium, but hardly pure representational. Her joy in painting is creating quiet, poetic paintings with deep, rich colors, compelling subject matter, and concise elegant compositions.
The current paintings by Ryan incorporate many of the same tools and materials used in the furniture making process and give his paintings a very unique texture and depth. The paintings have both spontaneous and craftsmen like qualities which give his work a undeniable vibrancy.
"I am interested in painting horizons or borders and hope to capture the mystery of an approaching event. Whether the impression is foreboding or optimistic is entirely to be determined by the viewer."
