Brides Bouquet inspires Painting – Newlywed Gift

The Bridal Bouquet was inspiration for the wedding gift given to a wonderful couple. The painting is to be a reminder of their special day. Please view a Progression Video, of the painting “Sweet Wild Blooms”.

Artists notes-

The subject and style of the Bridal Bouquet lends itself to a timeless lasting work of art. Instead of the bouquet floating in mid – air or placed on its side, the floral arrangement is set into a glass vase. Keeping the background palette clean to compliment the subtle colors in the arrangement of wild blooms, I hope the newlyweds will enjoy this still life painting, the title was easy because the scent was so divine  –  “Sweet Wild Blooms”

EXHIBITION STATEMENT

DUNE SHACK SEASCAPE SERIES

Exhibiting at CCPV will be five paintings by Claire Kendrick they are plein air works, reflecting her dune life onto canvas and creating beautiful paintings which captivate the magnificence of the Cape.

In 2016 Claire Kendrick was awarded with an opportunity artists around the world dream of, a residency at the Peaked Hill Bars National Register Historic District. Claire Kendrick’s residency on Cape Cod, occurred completely off the grid providing the artist with only the bare necessities and her painting materials in an effort to preserve and enhance the natural beauty of the Cape and reflect such beauty in Kendrick’s works.

The artist resided in one of the well-known Dune Shacks. The shanty was located miles away from civilization, but it has lodged several famous artists and authors throughout time all in search of seclusion to work.

Artist Claire Kendrick has produced many breathtaking paintings seascapes and dunes throughout her career. Kendrick is a Florida based artist but this was not her first time capturing the North East’s coast. In 2011 Claire Kendrick accepted an invitation from fellow landscape artist Anne Packard to paint at her coastal home in Provincetown, MA.

“Staying at the Dune Shack was both marvelous and frightening, life was stripped of the superfluous—no cell phone or computer—the essentials, paint supplies, a gas ring to cook on and gas light to read with at night, alone for a week perched on the dunes with uninterrupted views and huge open vistas looking out to sea, this is escapism and a chance to observe and emotionally connect to nature in its raw and finest moments. This is the thrill of the plain air painter.” – Kendrick

Vibrant Marsh

48×48 | Oil and Wax on Canvas | CJK

This large scale contemporary marsh painting is full of color and energy. Pushing color it is an uplifting vibrant painting and depiction of the marsh. Here in Florida the light sends the marshes into shock waves of color. As an artist its fun to push the boundary’s. Vibrant Marsh is available and at Plum Art Gallery, St Augustine.

“This is a hot climate and colorful coast it’s a joy to live here. I love the expanse of the marshlands, the big cloud-scapes, the scenery is dramatic and I try to express that in my paintings. When you’re out painting in these isolated places it feels like you have the world to yourself. The subtle shifts of light can in a moment calm or energize the environment. The paintings on exhibition are color sensations, passionate responses, and magical experiences.” – CJK
