Every two weeks, we’ll be sharing new paintings on our New Works page
Realist John Falato is new to the gallery and just finished the intricately detailed “Prospect Hill Beech.” In the more painterly “Sycamore” there’s an exciting juxtaposition of lights and darks. Cascading light brings out the character of this beautiful, weathered tree. The mesmerizing bird’s eye view of “Gay Head, Martha’s Vineyard” is a sweeping panorama painted on a mere 8 x 20 inch oil on panel.
Chris Dixon’s “The Passage” at 36 x 48 inches, offers a majestic window to a serene world.
Gulls gather on pilings over sparkling water watching the end of a peaceful, summer day in Polly Seip’s “The Afternoon Post.”
Dan Brown’s trompe l’oeil “About Aug. Is My Time” captures the glow of a warm sunset at West Wharf Beach in Madison. The scene is so detailed that you want to reach out and touch the bent corner of the painted postcard to see if it’s real.
Deborah Quinn-Munson’s oils “Cool,” and “Summer Breeze” are tranquil depictions of nature. Deborah finds inspiration in water, reflections, marsh and sea grass. Thick, textured layers of paint applied with a painting knife channel the Abstract Expressionists whose gestural brushwork and strong composition she admires.
