Description 'Dock On The Bay' is a wall art print done using a fauvism technique of the San Diego skyline from Coronado Island (fauvism: style of painting born in Paris around 1905). This technique focuses on bold brush strokes creating abstract oriented shapes and bright non-naturalistic colors creating a bold modern or contemporary look.The setting is downtown San Diego, a vibrant and active center of urban life for both the locals and the many tourist that visit the city. Sitting on the San Diego Bay facing Coronado Island, the skyline wraps around the shoreline from the Coronado Bay Bridge on the south end to the airport on the north end of the bay. Having grown dramatically in the last 20 years, there has been a resurgence of building in downtown along the bay. With the construction of Petco Park for the Padres near the convention center and the Gaslamp Quarter, high-rise condos and office buildings starting popping up everywhere.Follow my work:TheWallGallery: https://thewallgallery.comBlog: http://thewallgalleryblog.wordpress.com/Twitter:https://twitter.com/KirtWallGalleryFacebook:https://www.facebook.com/TheWallGallery.KirtTisdaleCopyright 2009 Kirt D.

Kirt Tisdale, Sherman Oaks Member Since February 2013 Artist Statement I have been creating art since I can remember. I have been blessed with having my work featured in various venues. What drives me is the beauty in the world with which we live. I remember as a kid looking up at the clouds and watching them change shape...if they could only stay in one shape long enough for me to enjoy and appreciate them....but that's not how it works. What I can do though is take a moment and freeze it. The beauty around us needs to be savored, contemplated and appreciated. Good art invokes an emotional response either through the scene depicted or the colors used. I hope my work invokes the same in you.
