Oil on 7x5 hardboard.

This is my contribution to WDE this week. Kathy was the hostess and supplied some great reference photos...Thanks, Kathy!

I knew I had to try this one from the moment I first saw it. vibes...all with the ocean as a backdrop signifying depth and timelessness. Unending.

Well, enough of that. This is oil on a 7x5 hardboard that was first coated with black gesso. I like how the black primer helps me to judge colors.

  1. Deno,
    This is my all time fave of yours.
    Very Jurick's.
    Love it!

  2. Absolutely fabulous, Dean. You are so amazing! And that verse is perfection for this piece. I too like the black preparation for pieces. It seems to bring such depth and richness to the paint laid over the top of it.

  3. So very nice, love this one! I've been staring at a bottle of black gesso for a couple of years now, terrified to open it and try it out. One of these days I'll have to just go for it.

  4. Gosh Dean, I missed your last post of that beautiful little dog! He's wonderful. And this incredible composition makes you feel all warm inside just looking at it. A really wonderful composition - great colours.
