Thrill Seeker

40x40x2 | Oil and Wax on Canvas

Exciting brush strokes and physical risk result in the paintings title Thrill Seeker from the Seascape Series.

Living on the east coast of the United States I look out on the Atlantic Ocean and I’m challenged as an artist to capture its vastness. The high seas and big storm fronts with the ferociousness of the weather fronts brings a depth and passion to my work, yet also there is a stillness and peace on the southern shores is a soothing calm and this is both a joy and quest to capture as a plein air and studio painter.

Symbolically the ocean is a sign of power and strength, due to its immensity. Observing and painting the great power of the ocean and its weather fronts is much like having a front row seat at the theater. As a plein air painter there is an urgency and need to capture the essence of your vista – it’s sparked by emotion and energy. In the studio I remeber the atmosphere and weather of the outdoors it adds to the paintings aliveness. All this –- the vigor of life is to be conveyed onto a canvas. It is a love, and a challenge. – Claire J Kendrick

Large Scale Dynamic Landscapes in Oil Paint

Expressive Contemporary Landscapes by Claire J Kendrick showing at Plum Gallery.
Art Walk (St. Augustine) – Late Night Opening 1st Friday of Every Month.

Working in Oil and Wax the matte texture of Kendricks landscape paintings show the energy and brushwork of the artist. Modern interpretations of the Marshlands north of St. Augustine, are inspiration for Kendrick who lives and works on Vilano  Beach. Pushing the boundary of what is traditionally expected in Landscape painting Kendricks paintings are recognizable but she takes artistic license with color, building layers of paint, overlapping tones and textures in oil paint mixed with a wax medium giving her work a signature style.

See this body of work exhibiting at Plum Gallery until January 22nd, 2018.
