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”

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

Rapture in Blue | 48×60 | Claire J Kendrick available through Plum Gallery, St Augustine

“It is my practice to always work with reference. I like to buy fresh flowers and set up the arrangement and start with a strong composition. This is always my foundation. As I begin painting, each brush stroke has to say something. Putting down a mark and deciding to keep or remove, I try to ask myself if this mark adds something to the painting. The results are dynamic, energetic forms–they show the energy you put into the painting. The still life floral paintings have a life and vitality.”

Pushing boundaries, Claire takes the paintings outdoors and uses a blow torch to melt wax mixed with oil paint, giving a free-flow effect which she then decides to manipulate or leave. This is a process of constant editing, painting, taking away then reapplying paint or wax, building the image slowly in layers.

“You should paint as you live life; expression should be in your work. See the things of beauty you enjoy and fill your life with that energy.”

“The dialogue is something I strive for–what is spoken and what is left unspoken–it’s the tension and energy between the painting and the private dialogue–the interpretation of the viewer(s)–their need to fill in the gaps.Body language is the unspoken dialogue.”

Claire paints landscape, still life and figurative paintings. Originally from Ireland, she worked in the fashion industry in Europe before she relocated to Florida in 2006. From a family of architects and designers, it seems that artistic expression, a love of design, and an eye for detail have enriched her life as a painter.
