"The full Moon" Montenegro landscape Watercolor on paper, size 38x56 cm, 2020 year #Tanbelia Artwork available to sale Artwork located in Ukraine The style in art is mosaic impressionism, sensual painting. The decisive idea is to leave the imprint of nature on the artwork, and provide the observer has an aesthetic satisfaction. Artworks are based on the idea of the beauty of nature "Nature is a workshop, an eternal exemplar of art".
Thanks for having a show, virtual or physical! CWA rocks!
Forgotten Art When we think of California writers, we go immediately to Didion, Steinbeck, and even to Fitzgerald, or crime writers like Raymond Chandler and James M. Cain. Off the beaten path, we think of Henry Miller, John Fante and Charles Bukowski. But no painters, aside from Hockey (an L.A. transplant) and Ed Ruscha readily come to mind in the same way, and yet, along the lines of Hopper and Grant, California had Emil Kosa, Jr. Kosa was the art director for 20th Century Fox from the 1930s into the 60s. He was the first to win an Oscar for special effects (Cleopatra, 1964). He was one of the key figures who created the famous Fox logo, and yet, Kosa’s relatively unknown passion was “California Scene Painting,” particularly in watercolors. To me, he should be as well known as O'Keefe, Paul Cadmus or Grant Wood.
Today I did 2 postcards to send out..... great idea, Carol!
