House of Many Colors
Created by Jeff Ferst
Ferst paints vibrant and whimsical paintings using oil stick, oil paint, and oil pastel. His muse is the Sonoron desert he calls home, and the many nearby places he visits. His new "Barrio Viejo" series shows the colorful houses and gardens of this historic neighborhood. Each painting is created in layers that, like a story, unfold as each is applied. This painting depicts one of the fabulous houses and its magical garden. The sides of the gallery-wrapped canvsas are painted black, and it is wired for hanging.
