Sea Folk I - Sergeant Majors
Painting - Oil On Canvas
"Sea Folk" - triptych oil on canvas 78" wide x 50" high
"Sea Folk" was painted in oil as a triptych that evolved over a three month period during the summer of 2006. It was again inspired by snorkeling trips to Key Largo. The Parrot Fish fascinate me with their rainbow of colors and the comical look of their faces. The Sergeant Majors were very abundant and striking and the Blue Tang are just gorgeous. When I began the painting I tried hard to emulate the colors I used in the "Sea eScape" series, which featured very vibrant orange, reds and blues, but every time I would attempt to use these bright colors the painting would cry out against them and I finally gave up and used variations on blues and greens. This worked and the painting came together for me. This painting has a more whimsical feel to it than most of my other paintings and I am very pleased with the result. Two of the original paintings measure 24" x 50". The middle panel is 28" x 50". Together, the triptych is 6' 4" wide x 50" deep. They are available as one piece in giclees of any size.
