Artists at Work in the Heart of Matlacha
Long Face 2
24x48 - oil on canvas
Jon Ferrentino's medium is oil. His manipulation of the medium is transcendental. It is as though he paints the soul of his subjects. This ethereal quality captivates the viewer, drawing them into the harmony and mystique
of his paintings.
The detail he skillfully brushes; turning canvas into character, is a direct reflection of his talent and attention to the minutiae of the environment and to the precocious antics of our finned, feathered and footed inhabitants.
Living in beautiful Palm Harbor, Florida, Jon finds inspiration in the crystal clear waters and the abundance of flora and fauna. His paintings are soulful and vibrant, often containing characters that appear as though they are peering back and observing the observer.
