    Flores de Sol

    ,
    This painting undulates with vibrant gold. This painting is part of my unique work as an artist in which I am using pressurized air to move ink and paint already applied to the canvas. The air becomes my brush. However, a lot more went into this painting than the golden abstract elements. Look closer and you will find incredible depth and detail.

    Notes of Gold

    ,
    Eye-grabbing and perfect for any music lover, Notes of Gold measures 36" x 36" x 1.5". It's acrylic on canvas with a secret recipe of ash, chalk, graphite, and oil pastel thrown in. I stretched the canvas myself and gallery-wrapped it onto thick stretcher bars. The edges are painted, so it doesn't require framing.  I worked a very long time on this one. Then I let it set 2 or 3 months, mulled it over, and decided to work it over some more. The result is a painting with great depth and detail. This painting is part of my music notes series.

  • San Francisco painting titled Somebody Stopped the Sun Just So by Terry Smith, 2015

    Somebody Stopped the Sun Just So

    ,
    Inspired by many trips to San Francisco, this mixed-media piece is a combination of acrylic panting and my own photographs. The background painting features a heart referencing the "I Left My Heart in San Francisco" song and theme as well as the many heart sculptures that have been placed around the city. Two white lines lines form a sailboat mast. A photographic image, in archival pigment ink, of the Transamerica Pyramid building was transferred to create the sail of the mast. A yellow cable car, blurred and in motion, is sailing down the hill. To the left, of course, is the iconic Golden Gate Bridge. At the bottom, forming the "hull of the vessel", is a silhouetted panoramic of the San Francisco skyline within which once again the Transamerica Pyramid is featured and aligns centered on the mast. This painting was completed by the artist on a flat piece of canvas before being stretched on 1.5" thick stretcher bars. The edges are painted, so it does not require framing unless desired.
