NO VACANCY.



"No Vacancy"
Oil on masonite
17"x11"
SOLD
©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.

This is an original work of art by California artist, Nancy Tokos, member American Impressionist Society, San Diego Portrait Society and Oil Painters of America.  Oil on masonite.   Safely packaged and shipped via FedEx but please allow 1-5 days for shipping. Save shipping and take delivery from my San Diego brick and mortar studio. Values may vary slightly between the actual painting and the image on your computer due to my digital camera settings, time of day the photograph is taken and the monitor you are looking at right now. *

Shipping will be a separate charge based entirely on your location.

Original.  Navy pilot's personal photograph taken 4 days before Honorable Discharge and was great inspiration for an oil painting.  Brian's unassuming personality was in sharp contrast when I asked, "what did you do?"  He responded "land jets on aircraft carriers."  This painting posted on D-Day's 75th Anniversary.  The shoe fits.

Price $225

Original.  The visitors who stroll past my southern California art studio almost always stop when they see a new "Frida" portrait.  This is my latest oil painting.  The previous portrait, Frida in a white dress on white background, was purchased by visitors from Japan.  Clearly, her notoriety is global !  I have a new art show tonight, so, I am hopeful ...

Marilyn Monroe study

$525

Original. I had painted a study of Marilyn Monroe a few years back.  I was learning the portrait and so ... it was a very "tight" rendering.  It's great fun to paint Monroe a few years later (and several hundred paintings!).  Helps me see my "style" progress.

THIS ONE

"THIS ONE"
Original
Oil on Masonite
17" x 11"
Price $ 325
©Nancy Tokos 2014

Original.  Sometimes, the title says it all.  This is a study of snow and the similarities with water.  The underpaint, the gesso'd texture lend to the looseness I was hoping to achieve.  A young boy wearing short trousers can only mean he is from Great Britain, as I came to learn in my life,  the English believe bare legs in winter "toughen up" the little men.

Save shipping and take delivery from my bricks and motar studio location in San Diego.  Most of my Oil paintings + drawings are very handsome in "barnwood" frame, my favorite available at Frame USA http://www.frameusa.com/.  However, this one comes with a great white wood frame (displayed).

Original.  This is a Snowy Egret and they are very busy on the beach in the morning.  Along with the sandpipers ! And the seagulls and pelicans.  Catching one of them in -flight was a real moment.  The sun's back lighting dictated the simplicity of this canvas.
