2 New Huntimer Paintings Unveiled!
Don has given us yet 2 new splendors to enjoy this spring! The first
is an original creation - an oil called "Water Lily"
that measures 18" x 24." One can literally feel the joy
coming from the beauty of this flower as it blooms forth in great
color! Take some time to take in that joy, for it is there for those
that open up to it, as the water lily opens to the day.
second painting is the artist's own inspired interpretation of Paul
Cezanne's “Montagne Sainte Victoire Seen From Bibemus”
is done in oils and measures 24”x 30”. The colors in
both are exquisite in not only their brilliance but in their movement.
One is drawn into these paintings by the fluidity of the forms as
well as the sensitive treatment of the tones and hues.
artists are drawn to recreate one another's works for a number of
reasons. To master a different technique or to discover some of
the methods of any one of the great masters, the artist can have
no better teacher than the painting itself that has brought such
things to light. The skilled artist can search out those fine skills
from the masters and discover the intricate nuances that have made
the great painters what they are. These techniques then become a
part of the artist's own pallette and will be found in future works.
To the fine artist, it is not necessary to have the great masters
physically present, as it is possible to "tune in" with
the mind, heart and vision of the masters by studying their work
through this intimate connection.
end result is not so much a "copy" but rather an individualized
vision and interpretation from one artist to another. The painting
above by Don Huntimer is very much a Don Huntimer original, inspired
by the great master Cezanne, but rendered by the skilled hand of
Don Huntimer's own inspirition. We have a new "master work."
