The Silence and the Autumn Rain - © Christopher Greco

"The Silence and the Autumn Rain"
9x12" oil on canvas panel.
The leaves were wet and soft.
As I walked on them I noticed that the only sound was the drizzling rain on the leaves above me.

6x6 paintings

These are paintings I am thinking about entering in a gallery competition/show. The paintings have to be six inch squares.  I chose this subject because I liked the idea of painting the huge tower on a tiny canvas. Ten years ago we were searching for a home here, this tower became the landmark we used to find our way around. For the last couple of weeks I have been exploring the various views and times of day. 
I will post individual images of the paintings when I finish the series...soon, I hope.

A Gray Day Beside The Giant - © Christopher Greco

"A Gray Day Beside The Giant"
8x10" oil on linen panel.
October in Connecticut is my favorite time and place. I drove 11 hours from Ohio to Connecticut, pulled into Sleeping Giant State Park and painted this. I rarely paint on gray days but this was a very quick trip and I wanted to absorb as much autumn in Connecticut as I could.

October Sanctum - © Christopher Greco

"October Sanctum"
8x10" oil on Belgian Linen panel.
This is a spot that I visit whenever I feel the need for a peaceful and quiet afternoon of painting and my dog needs an afternoon of running the woods and river.  Rarely does anyone hike down the hill and through the woods to invade our sanctuary...other than the deer.

A River Sunset - © Christopher Greco

"A River Sunset"
10x14" oil on masonite panel.
The setting sun was spectacular and I was thrilled to find myself at the river and ready to paint. This painting went through a few changes along the way. At one point my dog was in the foreground, standing on the large flat rocks, then a Blue Heron made an appearance in the middle ground and for awhile there was a fisherman way off to the left and his wife and child up on the river bank. The large mass of trees on the left was mostly in sunlight for quite awhile too. In the end, I like what I ended up with.

"Edgewater In, Edgewater, Out" - © Christopher Greco

 "Edgewater In"
6x8" oil on canvas panel.

"Edgewater Out"
8x8" oil on canvas panel.
 
My two warm up sketches. 
As I was painting two park rangers stopped by to chat. I usually don't like to stop painting to talk but they were very friendly and gave my some great suggestions of other places in the Metroparks to paint that I was unaware of.  I also met another painter on my way out of the park, all in all it was a pretty sociable morning for me.
I am offering these two as a pair.

A Quiet Moment Before...- © Christopher Greco - SOLD

"A Quiet Moment Before..."
8.5 x 12" oil on masonite panel.
Shortly after I chose this beautiful peaceful location...75-100 middle school runners came racing back and forth through the distant field. I didn't know this spot was on the cross country running circuit.

Maddie Bomb - © Christopher Greco

"Maddie Bomb"
11x14" oil on canvas panel.
I have a large backlog of recent paintings to post but this one from the other day makes me chuckle so it jumped to the top of my list.
The weather was great and I knew I should get out and paint but I was running late and decided to paint something in the back yard.  I chose to paint a still life. With very little thought or plan, I grabbed a few items and a small table and cloth from the garage. I set everything down and began painting. As I got everything blocked in, I saw that this was as terrifically uninspired picture. I should have scrapped it down but I continued thinking this will just be a quick painting exercise and nothing more. About an hour into the painting and thinking that I should call it a day, my dog came over and sat next to the table. It was as if she wanted to be a part of the still life...so I painted her too and now, I like the painting.

Bank Failure - © Christopher greco

"Bank Failure"
9x12" oil on stretched canvas.
This is from last week, before all of the excitement in the Greco family. I had an unexpected stay at the hospital for a small surgery. While visiting me, my daughter Caroline went into labor. Her mother walked her down to the second floor maternity ward. She then spent the evening traveling between my room on the third floor and our daughter on the second floor. Mom/Grandma was there to witness the birth of our grand daughter Grace Kathleen and then "wheeled" me down to meet her! 

About this painting;
The bank couldn't hold up the tree any longer so, the tree adjusted.

Conversation At Rose Hill - © Christopher Greco

"Conversation At Rose Hill"
9x12 oil on canvas panel.
While painting at Rose Hill, I met a Mrs. Dwyer. She told me of the history of this farmhouse and of the wonderful displays inside. It turns out that she had been a past president of the Rose Hill Museum and is also a member of the Dwyer family whose name is on the building that the Bay Village Senior Center is located within. I pick up and drop off "Meals on Wheels" there, and/or drive seniors to the grocery store or doctors office one morning a week. I meet some very interesting people when I'm out painting.
