Description 'The Family in Green' is an art print done in a fauvist style of oil painting (Fauvism: a style of painting with vivid expressionistic and non-naturalistic use of color that flourished in Paris from 1905).The inspiration behind this piece are two abstract sculptures we have depicting a family unit. Using them as a basis for this abstract, I created this art print using bright pastel color hues. I positioned the Mom and Dad standing by each other to create a look of partnership. I like the way the bold brush strokes stand out and complete the look. As part of a series based on the same sculpture, I played with a couple of different positions for the parents as well as the color hues. This particular print works well in a contemporary or modern interior design decor because of the bold simple lines.Follow my work:TheWallGallery: https://thewallgallery.comBlog: http://thewallgalleryblog.wordpress.com/Twitter:https://twitter.com/KirtWallGalleryFacebook:https://www.facebook.com/TheWallGallery.KirtTisdaleCopyright 2014 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.
