Lake Tahoe Peninsula

Lake Tahoe Peninsula by Jason Campbell I recently went on a retreat to Lake Tahoe and took some photos. This is a painting based on one of the photos.
While painting it I looked at other paintings of landscapes for inspiration in my art books and at the Crocker Art Museum. It’s interesting that everyone paints the sky and water a little differently. I guess you could classify them as “more realistic” and “more expressionistic” but maybe it is just that everyone sees them a little different. You never know exactly what the world looks like through someone else’s eyes… because you aren’t them.

Lady of the Lake

"Lady of the Lake" by Jason T. Campbell - fine art painting - acrylic on canvasHad a lot of fun doing this one. It was hard to stop… but I think I’m done. 🙂 It’s 22 x 28 inches which is pretty big for me. I found a couple images from the web and used the basic elements and shading but then did my own thing. As we all know cameras flatten things out. So I attempted to add back gradients. And of course I added extra colors. As my teacher Mick said…. I’m a natural expressionist. ha ha

The Silver Spoon

"The Silver Spoon" by Jason Campbell - fine art painting - acrylic on canvasThis painting was inspired by Magritte and Christo‘s work with sheets of canvas and a little bit by the Occupy Movement. I didn’t intend for it to be for or against them. But I think they bring up an interesting observation that there is a small percentage of people with a lot of wealth. And with politics aside I think they have a responsibility, should they choose to except it, to help their fellow humans in need. Like the old saying goes “With great power comes great responsibility.”

Still Life with Apple and Bottle

"Still Life with Apple and Bottle" fine art painting by Jason CampbellAfter taking my Modern Art History class at American River College by Ken Magri, I was really challenged to spend more time with my paintings. Some artists would spend a month on a painting. Although Van Gogh boasted he did a painting in a day and of course it look GORGEOUS, I don’t want to use that as an excuse to not spend more time with mine. So this is the start of spending more time with a painting. It may be making it realistic or just experimenting like de Kooning. Not that I’m at ashamed of the rest of my work. Each painting is part of the journey so I love them all.
