Recent painting by Charles Wildbank is a commission for a collector in the Florida Keys. This canine painting “Best Friends” posed a challenge in that it depicts a pair of English Setters, one of which has long been deceased. It is a comfort that the two are reunited on canvas reminiscing of their glorious days together.
The scope of artist Charles Wildbank’s art commissions is never confined within any one genre. He has painted murals for the Queen Mary 2, portraits of celebrities, surreal seascapes, portraits, florals, still life and classical automobiles. His art can be viewed at his latest webpage http://wildbankfineart.com
Wildbank’s visit to Palm Beach and the Ocean Reef Club in Key Largo last month was met with success. Art fans can now enjoy one of his sea life paintings of seashells, “Star of the Sea” in the reception desk area of the Ocean Reef Club Hotel. This clip shows an inside look as Charles applies paint strokes to the canvas including some of his other beach scenes. Currently he is working on another large wave painting, a part of his Wave series due completion the end of this month. Please return to this blog for more details soon and check out his new webpage addition http://wildbankfineart.com
Wildbank unveils his “Golden Wave” painting at The Laurel Group at Baywoods in Watermill. Interior designer Martin Ross spoke praises on painting “The Recital” of a surreal piano swept away at sea plus “The Buddha” shown.
The highlight of exhibition, “The Wave” painting, has been enlarged in Wildbank’s studio into a new triptych this year by adding a pair of panels on each side, adding up to 14 feet length. It was a grand evening so professionally hosted by Mr. and Mrs. McAteer of The Laurel Group and catered by Sen restaurant of Sag Harbor serving delectable sushi and fine wine.
