The Wave

"The Wave"
by Rick Wojnilo
24x12 Original Oil on Canvas $650

Wishing I was walking down to this beach with my surf board.

So I thought it'd be fun to post my concept sketch for this painting. I was sitting around this past Sunday afternoon watching the darkening skies and thunderstorms building on the horizon and was wishing that I could have gone to the beach this afternoon instead. So I made a quick sketch of a beach with a perfect aqua-marine colored wave getting ready to break. This is what was in my mind. Above is the finished painting, below is the sketch.

New England Sunset

"New England Sunset"
by Rick Wojnilo
6x6 Original Oil on Gesso Panel $100

I love the evening sunsets. The colorful clouds contrasting against the darkening sky make for striking scenes. Here's a view of this evenings sun reflecting off of the clouds as seen from my backyard. I love to sit and watch the sun going down and I always think that it's heading west, just like I wish I was.

French Fields

"French Fields"
by Rick Wojnilo
20x20 Original Oil on Canvas $650

In honor of the French Grand Prix this past weekend I painted this view of the local farm fields. I've also been studing the works of Paul Cezanne and was inspired by some of his works for this painting.
