Original.  The great thing about the internet is that you can visit other cities and countries from thousands of miles away.  Once when I was living in a cold and rainy part of the world, I would sit and look at the Pacific Ocean, well, LaJolla webcam to be exact.  Its the webcam that I have linked to this blog, there on the righthand side.  Small world, eh ?

Original. This painting was done to surprise daddy for Father's Day.  Mom and Dad had been walking past my studio window for a while, admiring the ocean landscapes, commenting " ... someday we need to have one of these paintings ...".  So Mom walked into my studio last week with adorable 12 month old and we chatted about what sort of painting could be ready in time for  Fathers Day.  This is what I came up with.  She was so happy she presented the Fathers Day gift 4 days early.  Always a good sign !  Thanks, Shannon

Board Walk

 "Board Walk"
Original
Oil on canvas
40" x 30"
$1,400

Original.  If I am lucky enough to leave the studio before the sun sets, I can catch the crowd that is headed out for a a good ending to their day.  Where we live is at streets end but it has a stairway to the beach and is very popular with the surfers.  I have used creative license with this woman's gear.  Everybody, and I do mean everybody, wears an unimaginative black wetsuit. Good for cold water surfers.  Bad for my collectors who appreciate a pretty girl.  As a side note, Jack O'Neill pioneered the wetsuit, which became wildly popular in the 80s.  He passed away June 2017 at the age of 94.  Aloha.

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
©Nancy Tokos 2017

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

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.
