Watercolor of the day ~ Tahitian Shore

Tahitian Shore ~ Watercolor by John Klobucher

Hello friends and art fans! Here’s a little Art of Lore

I’d been looking at a collection of Tahitian paintings by Paul Gauguin when I put brush to paper one morning and imagined this seaside scene. But its statuesque female figure is more abstracted (without defined facial features) in the style of Post-Impressionist Maurice Prendergast, one of the great American watercolorists of the last century and a favorite of mine.

A tip ‘o the cap to two inspirational artists!

Title: Tahitian Shore
Painted: November 1990
