Oil Paintings by New Hampshire seacoast artist Todd Bonita
Absolutely gorgeous Todd. The delicacy of the temperature shifts is really lovely. Of course, the other thing I love is the quiet serenity and the feeling that there is a "back story" here. I also enjoyed seeing the under painting posted on your other blog-it looks somewhat similar to what I do. Wonderful work!
Hi Deborah,Thanks so much. There is a back story to this, you are very observant. I talk about it a little on my other blog but in a nut shell it's about the quiet and humble reflection of turning forty or aging in general. (Note the indication of the birth date on the side of the boat) the sun starting a new day on one side and the dark shadow casting on the other.. and the title itself. Blah-blah-blah...I really loved painting it. All the best to you,Todd
I agree with Deborah! This is a lovely piece - and your mention of the back story makes it more interesting! (Happy birthday... and may the next 40 take you on an exciting journey!)
A stunning work of art.
This is just so nice. Your paintings really take me there. Your shifts in color are wonderful.Like to back story too.
40's were my most kick-ass decade. I loved them! Then again - maybe thats why I'm in the ER now...ha ha!Beautiful painting - you never fail to amaze me.
Amazing resonance, beautifully done...row, row, row your boat, life is but a dream...Happy birthday Todd! Best,Nina
Helen,Thanks so much for the well wishes, I'm looking forward to the journey..Chris and M Collier,you both know I'm a huge fan of your works and obsessively check your blogs, thanks for the positive words...Cara, I would love to have been a fly on the wall for some of your 40's..I'll let my imagination wander but I think you mentioned you were the wife of a biker. Nina,Thank you for the birthday wishes, life is indeed but a dream. All the best to you all.Sincerely,Todd
HelloI like your art it is the type of art I like. I am looking for art blogs to link with, would you like a link?My blog is :www.art-by-nick-harvey.blogspot.comBye!
Todd - Now here's something to feed your imagination...I started my 40's as the wife of a police officer for just over 20 years...ended them on the back of a Harley. What a ride!
Cara, I'm going to raise a drink to you tonight > to riding another 40 years.All the best.Nick,You are on my blog roll my friend. Thank you.Todd
todd.... again, i am in amazement at the serenity you create with your brush...... and how much better to know the back story.....happy birthday......what a wonderful way to mark it!
Belated birthday wishes Todd and a fantabulous new painting to go with it! These little boats pack a punch as subject matter and you take it even further with your brushwork and palette. All the best, Cooper
Simply wonderful. You make it look so easy. The ''melange'' of colors always astounds me.
Happy Birthday, Todd. I think I was 40 once--I can't remember!This is a wonderful painting. For me it contains the momentary and the eternal all in one. No idea how you managed that, but it's great.
Jacqui, Cooper, Alvin and Don,Wow, thanks, seriously! I'm starting to blush now. Above all, this was great fun to paint. All the best to you all as well.Todd
