The image above is a large painting on canvas, with a simple lattice frame. It is not square. The picture is also not taken straight on due to the circumstances. The parallelogram shape of the canvas is is foreshortened to get the whole picture in. The actual dimensions of the artwork are longer, with a smaller difference in the height lengths. The overall impression of the painting is much the same.
Dock of the Bay
- This painting is composed from a low-lying perspective to convey the mood of calm but resounding solitude. from the prospective of a lone viewer on the edge of a rugged whitewashed pierre. The detail in some places, and blurred composition in others was consciously intended to convey a feeling of isolation. It is about being in a beautiful place, all alone, in an unfamiliar place, in a foreign country. Have you been there? The dock is in Australia, on the east coast somewhere. The looming figure is a group of posts, out of focus and overlapping, like your fingers held up in front of what you are looking at. The focal points are at the horizon, or out to sea.
The Specifications for this painting are:
Dock of the Bay - 36" x 82" x approximately 28", oil on linen
