BEST FRIENDS!

March 8, 2012

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

One of Jedediah Hawkins Inn’s owners, Lia Polites welcomed Mary McGuire and myself for a pre-Valentine dinner to celebrate the hanging of my floral and still life art. Within a short walk from our South Jamesport residence, this newly renovated Victorian mansion shone brightly this frigid starry night as we delighted in the culinary ambiance worthy of palate and palette.

The house, restored by Jeff Hallock, descendent of original settlers, was built in 1863, in the rich tradition of the past while indulging in the ecclecticism of the 21st century.
