"In Transit" 24 x 18 Acrylic by John K. Harrell


One never knows where the inspiration for my next painting will come from. This man was riding on the light rail during the daily commute to my studio. He seemed to be lost in thought looking out the window but not really engaged with the view out the window. I think we call all relate to him at some point in our worlds.

"Waiting" 24 x 18 Acrylic by John K. Harrell


I am always drawn to paint figures in what some would call an everyday situation. Capturing the gesture, feel and nuance of the subject in a loose contemporary style is quite thrilling for me as an artist.

"Shaken not Stirred" 18 x 24 Acrylic by John K. Harrell


I captured this image from a recent trip to Provence Town MA. This very quaint town on the cape has quite a developed and highly regarded art community. I was enjoying gallery hopping and stopped to partake in the local fare. This restaurant had the most iconic bar which I imagined only existed on a movie set. The friendly well dressed bartender was very adept at his craft and made the perfectly delicious compliment to a day of beautiful art.

Night Story Acrylic 24 x 30 by John K. Harrell


The energy of New York City is undeniable. Even more so in the evening. The painting approach takes on the energy I felt when I was walking Times Square. I couldn't have painted this scene tightly if I tried. What do you think of my interpretation of Times Square?

San Francisco Magic Acrylic by John K. Harrell


When ever I get the opportunity to travel to different cities I take full advantage of my camera and capture fantastic scenes to paint. This is no exception. Walking around the streets of San Francisco in the rain was immensely entertaining and very inspiring. Not only do the reflections tell a story but the perspective of this piece takes you on an adventure as well.

Mens Wear 7 x 5 Acrylic by John K. Harrell






$200.00 + $10.00 S/H

So many things catch my interest these days that I will never have time to paint them all, but what I like about doing these small paintings and having my blog to share them on is that I can satisfy the thrill of quenching my thirst for that subject quickly and move on to something else. I find that the more technology evolves my artistic world expands right along with it. From the new freedom of camera phones to capture images, and it's capability to process and engage them on social platforms is quite profound.
To be honest keeping up with the technology is sometimes daunting but at the same time exciting. I see it's value in so many personal and professional applications that I can't see a world with out it anymore. Do I fight the current of advancement or do I choose to embrace the limitless journey ahead? I answer the call to Blogger, Instagram, Facebook, Pinterest and anything else that comes along that I'm up for a wild ride of discovery!

On Point 5 x 7 Acrylic by John K. Harrell

I enjoy painting figures especially dancers as they convey their story through movement. I don't know as one artist to another if my portrayal does them justice but I sure enjoy trying my best.

My New Adventure 6 x 6 Acrylic by John K. Harrell






$200.00 + $10.00 S/H

I was traveling on the light-rail train going into downtown Denver last week focusing on the scenery out of the window. I'm typically entertained by what I see, but because it was cloudy I started to look around at the people on the train. This guy was just listing to his music and looking out the window and I was captivated at his pose. The way the pale flat light came through the square window framing him called my iPhone into action. Once again something so simple makes such a fantastic subject for a painting!

Too Cool For My Shadow Acrylic 6 x 6 by John K. Harrell







$200.00 + $10.00 Shipping

I'm always drawn to people in the urban environment just doing common everyday activities. 
This beautiful woman wasn't doing anything extraordinary per se, just walking along the sidewalk. Her stride and the way the light hit her caste a wonderful shadow that made for a delightful painting!

White Wash Acrylic 6 x 6 by John K. Harrell







$200.00 + $10.00 S/H

I love the subject matter of this little gem. The only real contrast in the whole composition is the color of her hair. A very light value painting that captures the magnificent lighting and the easy going nature of the beach.

A Journey to Urban 5 x 7 Acrylic by John K. Harrell





$125.00 + $10.00 S/H

I'm back to painting my feel good subject the urban landscape. Nothing says San Francisco like the trolley. The car and its tracks lead the eye through the painting just as they do in real life. If you haven't ever ridden a trolley in this city you're missing out on a fantastic urban experience.

Pitcher of Red Acrylic 7 x 5 by John K. Harrell



SOLD

Nothing says summer like a beautiful window flower box. This one was particularly eye catching because of the contrast between the red geraniums and the white paint of the house and window curtains. The old fashioned curtains somehow match the traditional use of a longtime favorite annual.

Cherry 7 x 5 Acrylic by John K. Harrell


SOLD

Nature can be such an inspiration for so many things especially a painting. The blossoms this spring were so stunning and fragrant. I can see why the bees love them so much. I was trying to capture some of my bees on these flowers but they were to fast for me to catch them in action with my camera. So the painting is a portrait of just the cherry blossoms at their peak.

A Real Stand Out Acrylic 7 x 5 by John K. Harrell

We don't have little guys like this here in Denver, but close cousins without the extra splash of hair on the ears. Extra hair or not they all share the playful characteristic which I find always entertaining.

I have really had a good time recently painting the figure. These ballet dancers were fascinating to watch and equally exciting to paint.
