DETROIT STORIES... ORIGINAL SMALL OIL PAINTINGS
OF DETROIT BY STEPHEN MAGSIG
I like this! It reminds me of Mary Sheehan Winn's work on her blog. Simple, not sentimental, but inviting and interesting!
Superb. Vermeer's blue and yellow--an unbeatable combination. Love the handling of foreground shadow and overall design.
good morning - have been visiting your web-log for some time. i've noticed that most of your visitors'comments have been about your handling of the paint and your colors, etc. they are all valid comments, but what i like most about your small works (as opposed to your larger ones) is that they convey a greater amount of emotive content. there is something happening beyond the visual appearance. they are not belabored/overworked, nor over-thought. You are obviously drawn to an urban/suburban arrangement, respond to it, and then convey that response to us, seemingly without much editing. your paintings remind me so much of alex katz's smaller paintings - a lifetime of looking and of familiarity of craft - crystallized so perfectly in such small spaces. i admire your work very much and look forward to each new post. sincerely - jim
