Part of my Layers series, this painting conveys the color and excitement of Old Town Havana, Cuba. Vividly painted homes and storefronts stand in the foreground. Behind them looms the majestic Great Theatre of Havana, home of the Cuban National Ballet. Atop the dome stands a statue of an angel, reaching toward the heavens. Behind the theater, city homes stretch into the far distance, a rainbow of color and life. Fun details wait to be discovered: a dozing cat . . . bright lines of laundry drying in the sun . . . the beautiful Cuban trogon, Cuba's national bird.
I recently participated in a Studio Montclair (NJ) exhibition entitled The Place Called Home. Click at the bottom of this post for a virtual tour of the show! View all of the pieces and hear the artists comment on their work.
Below is the painting I had in the show: Leaving Home, 2019, acrylic on canvas, 20 in x 20 in, $600, available on Saatchi Art and Singulart.
