Original
Oil on canvas

Price $950
©Nancy Tokos 2017  

Original.  "All white with wispy plumes on head and back in breeding season" ... according to Wikipedia.  My story is a lot more interesting but actually, has nothing to do with the painting.  The painting was inspired by a terrific photograph.  The photographer is a friend that goes back to school days.  But I never knew he was so talented !  Thanks, Frank

Original oil painting.   This is painted from a series of photos I took during a morning walk on the nearby pier.  At first, I kept a distance of about 20 ft.  The sunlight was good and the bird remained still.  I crept closer and closer until I was within 2 ft.  The queen turned her head to the right.  Then the left.  From the series of photos taken that day, I've done three paintings.  That's more than I've painted my husband.  Ha ha ha !

SKY LIGHT

"Sky Light"
Original
Oil on canvas

Price $ 1,400

Original.  For me, the shadowed form of bathing beauties in summers canvas wooden chairs has turned into a popular theme.  I've pulled in a few elements from my personal life.  I have always tanned in the canvas beach chair but they are now found mostly in the EU, which is where I saw them again in Central London public parks, in the middle of the city.  You won't see the canvas chairs on a California beach.  But the sky is California.  The sea is Caribbean green.  The sand is Florida sugar sand.  The occupants are the beach boys ...

Original.  My studio at Liberty Station doubles as a Gallery.  I enjoy painting all that surrounds me, which is the Pacific Ocean.  After 5 years, I suddenly realized that my Gallery has two walls that are predominately paintings of blue or shades of blue.  With this painting, I have purposely painted something "not blue."  But still ...

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
