” 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 a form of “Realism”, requiring wait time between layers and a full sketch to start, so painting on site is not possible. My photo images remind me of scenes and inspiration to paint.
For this painting I envisioned my Art Gallery just under the awning, if I lived here, and before I painted this painting, I lived above my real Gallery with an awning and its name upon it, BaywoodGallery. See below the image of the awning and the texture found in the white walls.
This is a digital- beveled made by me. It is difficult to get the (actual) entire effect of the beveled edge and keep the horizontal lines concurrent in the curve. When I edit the camera copy for prints I flatten the edges digitally. I have been doing this for a long time and leave as much as I can without altering too much for Prints.
Left side-actual bevel-a very gentle curve allows you to follow the painting from one side to the other even on the wall.⇓

After a full sketch in pastel pencil, the painting begins. ⇓

At the bottom of a stairway or at the end of a hall, this will open a wall with a view ⇓
For the print of this painting the horizon line was straightened (the sea) but with the curved wall remained curved as though it was meant to be. For the steps on the lower left, again, I did not straighten the curved lines of the steps for the print , giving it the effect of a curved entry. I try to leave as much as possible on the prints as I can. For the “collector” of Originals Oil Paintings, this Original would be hard to duplicate because of the bevel. is one of a kind. Either way, it’s all done by me from the painting to the print. The next image shows the actual curved corner of this painting along with two other paintings.
Prints are published and printed, flat, without the bevel effect, as seen below ⇓
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.
