Summer Print Art, “Ocean Drive #2”
Ocean Drive in Newport, Rhode Island offers up umpteen magnificent views as you drive the length of it. Here you see endless and often breath-taking scenes of the water, sky and land coming together to captivate. Here is one of a series I painted in acrylic form, originally, at a small scale, 7″ x 5″, from which these digital prints are produced.
The original image looks like this, see below, before any application to print technology or wall decor considerations. This was a wind-blown, watery day when I completed my sketch. The air, water, sun all move, all the time, so I made an effort to capture the dynamism in the moment in this painting as I try to do in most of my paintings that are not in the still-life style. One of a series of small acrylic paintings completed during this time, from which these archival prints are made available.
And if you like pixelated images, as I do, you might like a pixelated print. You can see the difference, here. Not everybody’s choice, but I’ve been enamored with pixelated images since I first discovered them in the graphic design profession, some years ago.
Here in this continued heat-wave, fourth day over ninety, mid-July day, 2020, I invite you amidst the pandemic, economic travail, geopolitical upheaval and national forbearance to reflect, to buy an art print…(have you ever purchased an art print?), to investigate GeorgeDelanyArt… try two neat features on my site:
The first– WALL Preview, a capability that visualizes your art selection in your specifications as seen in different settings; living room, bedroom, sitting room, conference room, these sorts of things, as referenced, above.
Secondly, the Live Augmented Reality feature that allows you to see your chosen art work on YOUR wall…in your setting. Pretty exciting stuff.
This is my “business advice,” for the week– It helps to be able to see or to find beauty in conditions that are not, let’s say, stereotypical. We think full sun, blue sky, glorious! Yes, this is often the case. But when the sun disappears and the clouds arrive, can we still see the beauty in the moment? Can we still celebrate the less-than-fashionably-perfect? Can we see perhaps more beauty in the less idealized than we would believe possible? This is one reason why the art-experience is so powerful. I am lucky to paint some of it in the Ocean Drive painting, produced as a summer wall decor, here, “Ocean Drive #2.”
