Description This sun drenched plaza is a public gathering place for all the region surrounding this old colonial town.It is a spot to relax, to bring the family, to eat, to shop, or just to meet and chat with old friends.The vendors and entertainers mix with shoppers, families with children, and people hurrying about their business.In the center of the square is a statue to some long forgotten hero or notable from a time past.It could be a scene from almost any Central American country.It was painted from many photographs I took while drawing and sketching around Patzcuaro, in south-western Mexico, February, 2006.With over 175 painted figures and with dozens of individual stories, their interactions stimulate the viewer's imagination.*****The original is painted in oil on canvas. This triptych consist of three painted canvas panels each 18 x 36 inches. The panels are designed to be hung side-by-side with a gap of about two inches between each. Together they extend over about nine and half feet of wall space.This print has been digitally stitched so that all three panels are in one frame. Also, the you may purchase a separate print of each panel. This allows the you to hang the three panels as the were originally intended.
Peter Worsley, Santa Barbara, California Member Since July 2007 Artist Statement Born in England, Peter Worsley came to California in 1956, and to Santa Barbara in 1970. His serious work in the visual arts began in 1996, after retiring from some fifty years in industry. Though largely self-taught, he continues to study with some of the wonderful artists who teach locally.
Always, he has a strong desire to include people in his paintings. To him, people add life. After initially choosing to work in watercolor, Peter gradually introduced opaque gouache into his work, producing many gouache paintings over several years. From these early struggles, Peter has evolved to where today he paints ordinary people doing everyday things at interesting places, in a Social Realism style, using oil on canvas.
Active in the local art community, Worsley is a Past President of both the Santa Barbara Art Association and the Goleta Valley Art Association, a member of the Santa Barbara Studio Artists, Associate Member of Oil Painters Of America, and a Founder and former Director of Santa Barbara Visual Arts Alliance.
