Great Eagle Beginnings

rough sketch of painting to be… 14 x 11″ oil paint on gessoed artist board

I usually do my use of space and general light and dark plan before I take to actual painting. This stage is often a far cry from the end result. See following post for transformation.

Motor Girl

5.75 x 7.25 oil paint on canvas sheet

For the time being I may have gotten some of Ngyuen Thanh Binh out of my system. I do aspire to his kind of essence in oil paint.

Bird Girl

8 x 6″ oil paint on canvas sheet

After the simplicity of Nguyen Thanh Binh. The previous post has the explanation for these last two paintings.

Flower Girl

8 x 6″ oil paint on canvas sheet

I am so inspired by the lovely simplicity of the striking work of Vietnamese painter Nguyen Thanh Binh that I had to try a spin off myself. Mine lacks his genius, and if you search his name you may agree!

Child of Light

10 x 8″ oil paint on stretched canvas

While the world celebrates New Year’s Day, on January 1 in the Catholic Church, the Solemnity of the Mother of God is also celebrated. Mary’s yes brought Light to the world.
