“Sea Creatures after Miro”

Remaining in the light hearted vein, the next piece, “Sea Creatures after Miro” was inspired by Miro’s stained glass window at the Maeght Foundation in St. Paul de Vence, France. The setting, displays, whimsical landscape, French sun, and joy de vivre contributed to creative impulses. The first image is my quick pen sketch of Miro’s inventive good humored creatures of free forms and shapes in my sketch book. From this sketch, I painted the next image with water colors on an advertisement. “Sea Creatures after Miro” is the edited version of my visions. Layers of glue, more painting, subsequent acrylic painting and gloss layers simulate depth and motion. Where are they going? What are they thinking? They seem to be having fun.
