Seeing Anew | 12×12 | Mixed Media available through CJK-Studio

Claire J Kendrick is an artist whose paintings reflect Florida landscapes with bold, rich, beautiful colors. Collectors respond to the contemporary style and the expressive way in which she paints. The big open vistas and the marsh views that stretch for miles are favorite subjects to paint.

“This is a hot climate and colorful coast it’s a joy to live here. I love the expanse of the marshlands, the big cloudscapes, 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.”

Vista | 60×48 | Oil and Wax

This is a striking large scale contemporary painting, the inspiration for this marsh scene was from a smaller painting I did some time ago called “Marsh in Fall”. The challenge of course is to have a piece read on a larger scale yet still pushing the paint, using artistic license to go beyond what was done before. A unique change up, in the palette, I had fun playing with color and using the composition to lead the viewer into the painting. With the bright bright light we have in the south the marsh takes on colors that can be extreme. The paint and texture of this painting is layered with vibrations of color play within.

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 ablaze with color!

Symphony Intracoastal | Large Encaustic Oil Painting

Artist Notes

52″ x 66″ | Oil Encaustic | Florida Marsh Painting | “Symphony Intracoastal”

Working large and in thin layers before applying wax gives the surface of this painting a rich textural feel. Oil mixed with wax gives the viewer the chance to see drips and runs on the surface. There is a wonderful matte finish to the painting.

If you are interested in pricing information for this painting please private message me at the studio.
