Daydreams of ease and comfort. The pelican finds a place to survey his kingdom. A full belly and a cool breeze, a place in the sun. Peace and contentment are palpable here for this king of the hill reigns supreme. Be your own king or queen. Own your hill or boulder, even if just for this one moment. The world can be beautiful.
It’s been too long since a beach visit happened. Time to take some time. Prints of beach scenes painted by Arnica Grace will be available at the Port Aransas Art Center beginning in August! Pick this print up there for a reasonable cost. Visit, have fun, go swimming!
Every cloud has a silver lining. These are golden. What could be better than the sun peeking out at you at the end of a cloudy day? Come visit the Port Aransas Art Center today and enjoy the glow.
This work is a marvel of layering. The colors shift as the daylight changes. In the evening, the darker tones are dominant, but midday the glazes of blue and violet are strongest. Come see for yourself!
It’s not a sunny day, but the world offers beauty anyway. Sometimes a little mist on your nose is just the right thing. With layers of impasto and glazing, this painting glows from within. The heavy impasto- a technique of laying on paint so thickly that it stands out from a surface- adds character and form.
Arnica Grace has been known to use painting knives- a flexible metal blade. This device helps her to put down the thick paint she likes to see in some of her larger works. This being a Big Big Sky, she uses the painting knife with gusto! Energy and form, peace and activity, layers of color sing in a unique harmony.
Collections begin with one piece. This is a good cornerstone for the foundation of your own art empire. Enjoy!
"The purpose of art is to wash the dust of daily life off our souls." -Pablo Picasso
