The Islands

Art - by Desmond - Islands - May 22 - 2019 cropped

58 x 92 inches – Oil and Acrylics on canvas – November 2018.

Update: May 8, 2019.

Painted for a previous a client, on my personal whim, who liked it but had several reservations, the crux of which turns out to be the size. “It is too large.” So, that is quite all right and while one cannot argue unknown points, I am reminded of the movie Amadeus and at the end of a symphony, the king told Mozart it was too long and to just … “cut out a few notes.” More later on this painting.
