A Walk by the Sea in Mykonos

” A Walk by the Sea, in Mykonos”  (in inches 18″x 36″) ⇓

While in Mykonos I wandered the little streets no wider than a path, but perfect for a stroll.  This subject is a combination of memories of my time on Mykonos Island, Greece.  I paint in oils and in an Expressionism form, so painting on site is not possible.  In the subjects I paint the layers require time,  Photo images remind me of scenes and inspiration to paint.  I envisioned my Art Gallery just under the awning if I lived there.  The size of this image does not lend itself to its texture on the walls and even in the canvas sky.  See below the image of the awning and the texture found in the white walls.  Read about the framing and how I make these beveled-edged and hand stretched Canvases.  See>Menu> Artists>Mary

Texture in the white⇓


For over 25 years I made these curved (beveled) frames. The design and depth of the frame was made by me and submitted to a milling company, where they made a “knife” to be used over and over to cut this curve. The hardwood used, was either Oak, Poplar, or Ash so that the frame could withstand the stretching of the canvas over and around to the back where it was stapled. I am older now and will not be building these frames anymore, but selling the machine used to join the corners and the original “knife” design. It is basically a 2-inch from the back and curved so gently that the canvas floats over the edge on the inside frame. All paintings come ready to hang. Coated wire mounted through brackets and screwed to back of frame.

I will be using the traditional, but upgraded, Gallery Wrap (flat edges rather than the curved). I have been left with many loyal collectors and followers who have commented on how the framing enhances the depth and interest in my paintings. All paintings are painted to the back edge of the canvas and so I will also paint the flat edge of future paintings I complete for sale.
