Summer Art Print: “Corn”
Turns out, this is one of my favorite oil paintings, to date. Corn. It is roughly 60″ x 40,” oil-on-canvas. I offer limited edition prints at George Delany Art. The painting began as an outdoor exercise at just this time of year, August, when corn was in the neighborhood, at the market, and in my head.
Above you see the image as it might appear in a home-office. Below you see the image coming along in the very latter stages, almost done, though the question of what it means to be “done” is always lurking in the air! Print dimensions are 24″ x 18.” I will sign a limited edition print for you. You can frame it as you wish. The print uses archival pigments and paper, but should not hang near or in direct sunlight. Thanks for your inquiry here, appreciate your interest.
Below is a mug shot of me as the painting was first laid on, outdoors, one hot August day. I spread out the easel, the canvas, a table on saw-horses, all my paint and turpentine, brushes, rags, paper towel, a beer and just started in.
It’s August. We’ve suffered thru one storm whose name I can’t quite get. Summer plows ahead. I invite you in this heat, 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 you may enjoy:
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– Corn moves me. I guess this is because corn has kept humanity alive for a long, long time. I attach sacred implications to corn. Maybe I’ll write about this, someday. But to sit and munch down an ear of buttered corn on the cob in August, treat though it is, misses some of the qualities that come with living on planet Earth, seems to me. I have made an effort to capture this in my painting, which, by the way, I completed over a bunch of years– this was a fun painting to puzzle out. What sorts of images really move you?
