SPACE BETWEEN US

 "Space Between Us"
Original
Oil on canvas
20" x 10"
$275

Original. This is a different aspect ratio for me to paint.  Frequently, you see a 3-4 ratio but thought I would shake up my world a little bit and try this canvas.  Below photo has the canvas sitting on my easel so you have a better sense of the look and feel.  I absolutely love this shade of blue.  Hence, a rare cloud-free sky from me !

CHILDREN OF THE FUTURE


  "Children of the Future"
Original
Oil on panel
10" x 8"
SOLD

Original.  A brilliant photographer, Janelle Maas, invited a group of artists to her home for an afternoon of plein air painting.  This was the first time our group gathered for a creative session.  Some brought their easels other brought their camera.  The unique feature about this location was, in reality, a private residence in Cabrillo National Park which is where all the ships at sea look to the lighthouse, located at the tip of Point Loma, California !  Most focused on painting the lighthouse but I was fascinated with the children.  Who were clearly fascinated with computer games.  Hence, this title.

2 HR. PARKING

"2 Hr. Parking"
Original
Oil on canvas
20" x 10"
$395
©Nancy Tokos 2017

Original.  Ever notice how life becomes comfortable and you stop trying different things ? I've been painting on canvasses that are similar aspect ratios, often a 4 X 3. Standard size, popular, and common. The above canvas is similar to the digital television aspect ratio or 16 x 9. It's absolutely wonderful for landscapes and that is exactly what I have in mind.  Except a client of mine has asked for a very wide canvas: 58" x 10".  Thank you Mrs. C for making me paint outside my comfort zone !  Now that I have done a few warm-ups (the above) I am totally ready to grow.

CLEAR SAILING

"Clear Sailing"
Original

Price $750

Original.  I had painted a smaller version of this and it received a great deal of attention. I've posted them side by side so you can compare.  I don't paint too many sailboats, most people like to look at a girl in a bikini.  I personally prefer a sailboat just like this one.  And the larger version (this one) actually makes a greater statement.

Original.  Friends of ours took us for a sunset ride on their motor boat.  Great fun looking at the Southern California coast line from the Pacific Ocean !  But who cares about the coastline when the sun is catching light on canvas.  I salute the Captain of this beautiful sailboat.

$750
©Nancy Tokos 2017

Original.  I am a health nut.  I enjoy staying away from doctors and hospitals and pills.  Believe me, I love a good vitamin store !  I once lived in England and there weren't many sunshine days.  They called it "seasonal affected disorder" or SAD.  As soon as we moved to the beach, to the sun, I bought a $10 beach chair to get some vitamin C.  Natural. Free. You know, affordable health care.

WINTER SUNSET


"Winter Sunset"
Original
Oil on Masonite
17" x 11"
$225
©Nancy Tokos 2017

Original.  My husband often takes a photograph at the end of our street and says "this will make a great painting".  Because Southern California has actually had a colder Winter than usual, the ocean has had many different color palettes that I have found inspiring.  One day, my husband captured a grey sky with a pale yellow sunset.  This painting does not come close to the unique greys and yellow but I will continue to try.
