New and Old




Here is some new paintings and some old paintings. It is interesting how we grow in our thoughts and attitudes not only as a person but as an artist as well. The top painting I just finished. Once again it is a street scene in Aix-en-Provence. I'm not sure whether I am finished with the painting. I may or may put in some more foliage at the top of the painting to kind of "frame" the composition. The Sunset at Northern California Beach I painted about three weeks ago. It already has sold, but cards are always available. The second painting is a painting I did on location. It is from the "wedge" in Newport Beach, CA. I finished it my studio. The next painting, below, is once again painted from a photo I took in Aix-en-Provence. I finished it today. I call it Les Rues D'Aix. I keep wanting to paint France. Speaking of France the final painting has been painted by many artist. It is Sainte-Victoire painted by C├ęzanne a few times. Sainte-Victoire is right outside of Aix. The bottom painting is of the San Juan Capistrano Mission which is near where I live in Southern California. I painted that about 5 years ago. Double click on any painting to see a larger version.

As the paintings on my blog are for sale (unless they have already been sold). Prints are available as well as note cards that come 8 in a box for $12. I also do commissions. If you are interested you can contact me at: ken@kenharris.com.
