Description 'The Sidewalk' is an art print I created using a gothic oil technique of a sidewalk in a residential area of Marthas Vineyard. This technique focuses on bold brush strokes and earth tone colors creating an old world look.The setting is Marthas Vineyard, an island just to the south of Cape Cod in Massachusetts. The island is known as an affluent summer colony with over half of the homes on the island considered seasonal. The island can only be reached by air or boat, making it the largest island not connected to the mainland along the east coast. It retains the charm of a New England village, albeit an upscale village.Follow my work:TheWallGallery: https://thewallgallery.comBlog: http://thewallgalleryblog.wordpress.com/Twitter:https://twitter.com/KirtWallGalleryFacebook:https://www.facebook.com/TheWallGallery.KirtTisdaleCopyright 2012 Kirt D.

Kirt Tisdale, Everett, Washington Member Since February 2013 Artist Statement I have been creating art since I can remember. I have been blessed with having my work featured in various venues. What drives me is the beauty in the world with which we live. I remember as a kid looking up at the clouds and watching them change shape...if they could only stay in one shape long enough for me to enjoy and appreciate them....but that's not how it works. What I can do though is take a moment and freeze it. The beauty around us needs to be savored, contemplated and appreciated. Good art invokes an emotional response either through the scene depicted or the colors used. I hope my work invokes the same in you.
