Tuileries, from an image
by Demi Kalfa for
Robert Oster’s Green at
Night is new to me,
on sale at Vanness in
*I shouldn’t tell you about Grandpa’s basement
because, more for me.*
It has rich undertones of
black and also touches of
warm yellow, though it is hard
to see in the washes above.
I have been told that the way an artist crops an image changes the way the piece feels.
Maybe that is why I like playing with cropping after the fact…
Included in this cropping is the banner above (if you can see it on your phones.)
But I’m not sure about this. I think it is line or brush stroke and color.
What say you?

That annoying loud-mouth editor/critic in your head? GONE! How great would that be?
Your work inspires me. Thank you!
I am a recovering photojournalist. Cropping often makes or breaks a photograph. I can see it can be also true for a rendering, a drawing or a painting.
I like that — a recovering photojournalist. I am a recovering architect. My thang is symmetry… it is in my blood.
I think it does change the mood. I think it’s very personal, both for the artist and the onlooker. I do prefer the open edges in the first share.
Thank you — I may be too close once I’ve drawn it to see what I prefer…
What a gorgeous green this is!!
Yes! I bought it on sale from Vanness and I am not disappointed.
