AFFORDABLE HEALTH CARE

"Affordable Health Care"
Original
Oil on canvas
36" x 24"
$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.

WHITE BIRD MUST FLY



"White Bird Must Fly"
Original
Oil on canvas
36" x 24"
Price $975
©Nancy Tokos 2017

Original.  If you attended university in the 70s, you are familiar with an album called " It's A Beautiful Day."  On that wonderful album was a haunting tune called White Bird.  When I finished painting this seagull, the line from that song instantly came to mind.

NO VACANCY

"No Vacancy"
Original
Oil on masonite
17"x11"
$275
©Nancy Tokos 2017

Original.  Crystal Pier is located in Pacific Beach.  Every local knows about this pier because you can literally rent a New England-styled cabin and sleep over the ocean.  This is not a spontaneous decision, you have to book months in advance.  I had a stressful (but fun) career in Los Angeles and decided to keep my summer vacation easy.  Five days of sleeping out on the balcony was better than a trip to the Moon.

"SPARKY"

"Sparky"
Original
14" x 11"
Charcoal wash on Strathmore
SOLD

Original.  Good story:  Liberty Station Arts District, where my art studio is located, invited me to  go on-air for a local morning talk show to help them promote a Holiday Block Party.  I offered a studio promotion for charcoal portraits.  Sara was visiting from Florida and happened to walk in.  Sparky was Sara's constant company, gentle and lovable.  She saw my other pet portraits and immediately showed me a spectacular family iPhoto.  I was instantly inspired.  And after studying Sparky's eyes and kind demeanor, understand why Sara and family wanted this lasting memory.

"Water Meets Sky"
Original
Oil on canvas

Original. California skies have their own distinctive look.  Englands skies are distinctive. I'm willing to bet that every country is unique but no two are alike. When it comes to painting them, bigger is amazingly better.

RAIN OR SHINE 2

"Rain or Shine 2"
Original
Oil on canvas
30" x 24"
SOLD
©Nancy Tokos 2016

Original.  Once in a great while, a painting takes on its own life.   I finished an earlier version of this painting and a dear collector/friend had phoned and said that this was the painting he'd been looking for his son.  My husband and I were out the door to dinner and upon return, PayPal notified me that the painting had been paid.  I assumed it was my collector/friend.  But it was a new collector !   I telephoned my collector/friend and left the decision with him ... adding I would paint another version nearly twice the size.  I must admit, bigger is better !
