About the Item

A Village in Spain is typical of the small villages that you see outside of the larger cities of Madrid and Barcelona. It is oil on canvas and is 24 x 30. Marty Ricks is known for his Tonalism paintings that have been done in the USA and around the world. This painting shows the beauty of spring and summer in these small Spanish villages. Life to me feels very much like a river, wherein strong currents and lazy meanderings carry us along. We have no idea what lies around the next bend. So we fear the unknown and we crave the illumination of light. Life is also like a painting, in that it is all about the contrasts of colors and values. I love to create a sense of light in my work, but the feeling of light emanates from the shadow areas. I’ll sum it up with a borrowed verse from Russell Chatham’s collection of short stories, Dark Waters. When I read this twenty-five years ago, all that I saw was beautiful prose about where the big fish most likely were hiding. Now, the meaning has been seasoned with a few good hard kicks to the teeth. Thank God for loss, disappointment, re-evaluation, and the discovery which lies waiting just beyond the well-lit path. Martin Edwin Ricks 2011 In the midnight Arctic seas, stained tropical rivers at dawn, the Gulf Stream at noon, where thin shafts of light chisel down into blue-black; a small creek in evening shade beneath willows and sycamores; in northern rivers in deep viridian hollows. It is always the dark water which promises the most. Russell Chatham
