Garnet City

“Garnet City”
Acrylic on Canvas – January 2015

I find that I often paint paintings of cities on water.. which makes sense as many cities (especially older cities) tend to be near major bodies of water due to transportation, trade, and natural resources back in the days before planes and cars. I wanted to try one that was inspired by jewel tones and this is what transpired. Garnets can be red, orange, yellow, green, purple, brown, blue, black, pink and colorless. Thus a garnet can embody the colors in the painting, it’s a play on the emerald city of Oz and frankly, it was made in January and Garnet is the birthstone of the month! Even though I’m not crazy about winter weather, I love my January peoples!
