Uncle Dan's Easel......DANIEL GERHARTZ'S compelling paintings resonate honesty and integrity. His skillful and technically adept work celebrates the world he creates within his paintings. His subjects evoke a timelessness and idealism because of his intimate content of his art. Emotions are a vital part of his express design, while his mastery of anatomy, the human form and complex surfaces combine to make his canvases very powerful visual experiences.
Sunrays by G.Gercken 2012 This piece has the illusion of space with foreground (the closest stakes), middleground (the stakes in the middle of the group of stakes and painting), bcakground (the stakes furthest from the primary object). The positive space is the large tree branch hanging down in front of all the other objects. All this comes together to form a cohesive landscape.
I've had a painting board sitting here for weeks without any pictures to fill it. This Daniel Gerhartz painting caught my eye because of the way the light glints off of the water and the edges of the girl's hair giving a peaceful feel to the whole scene.
