Oil Paintings by Artist Maria Gibbs Depict Moments From Everyday Life

Hens and Chicks, oil painting by Maria Gibbs

Hens and Chicks, oil painting by Maria Gibbs

Maria Gibbs paints to fulfill her passion for the world around her. She loves the artistic process and the act of painting in oils in her studio. She follows her creative inner voice producing stunning images of subjects that include flowers, succulents, landscapes, and people dancing. Her use of vivid colors bring the paintings to life and her combined brush and palette knife work result in remarkable and subtle nuances in texture. Maria works her large floral images in two series–the first, stylized in nature with much romantic appeal, and the second, near photo-realism. She is excited to share these paintings with you in the galleries on her website  http://mariagibbsfineart.com/.

New York City Artist Blossom Verlinsky Made Art During the Four Day Power Outage of Hurricane Sandy

Dear Marie

The power went out and there was nothing else to do but paint. In the cold dark space with candlelight augmented by a new eerie silence I began to finish the paintings that I had started days before. The colors took on a new life, shimmering in the flicker of the flame. During the day I was able to paint by daylight, able to actually see the brush I was using. The night came all too soon and I was again surrounded by the darkness and drawn to the light reflected by the canvas. This went on for 4 days, each day colder and drearier than the day before.

Attached are 3 paintings that resulted from the 4 nights of darkness and 4 days of angst.

The Space Between, Barbara Rachko

To say that her pastel paintings are skillful is truly an understatement! New York City artist Barbara Rachko has perfected her artistic style working from her large collection of Mexican and Guatemalan folk art – masks, carved wooden animals, papier mâché figures, and toys – to create pastel paintings that combine reality and fantasy and depict personal narratives.

If you are wondering how this artist achieves such fine detail and a photographic quality in her pastel paintings, you can find out more about her techniques by following her blog appropriately named Colored Dust. The artist also share a lot about her art-making on her Facebook page, which you can Like to follow her there.

The multi-talented Barbara is a gifted photographic artist as well, and currently represented by the New York City art gallery HP Garcia.
