Special Thanks to the Massachusetts DAV - 6/5/12

                                 
                             "Putting at Granite Links" 12"x24" oil on canvas
                                          Auctioned at event for $2750



                I am very honored and humbled to have been chosen by the Massachusetts Disabled American Veterans ( DAV ) as their Disabled Veteran of the Year for 2012. I have donated a painting to auction for their "Heroes Among Us" gala that will be held at Granite Links Golf  Club on June 15, 2012. When I was asked to donate a painting, I originally had absolutely no idea what to paint for the event. Then I remembered hearing about the spectacular views of the Boston skyline from Granite Links. My wife Jenn and I decided to take a ride on an amazingly beautiful spring morning in early May. All I can say is that the rumors did not do the view justice. It was indeed , AMAZING! Originally, I was planning on just painting the skyline itself. But as we were heading back to the car after snapping some great pictures, we spotted this man practicing his putts on a little practice green. I asked Jenn to snap a few shots but she was way ahead of me. Upon returning home and reviewing the reference photos, I thought the ones with the golfer were the most interesting and challenging to paint. I was especially eager to capture the atmospheric perspective created by the haze on the skyline. I was also intrigued by the golfer's bright red cap which compliments the many hues of both cool and warm greens in the scene.

NOTE: If anyone is interested in bidding on the above painting please email me at  dannyowen03@yahoo.com   and I will put you in touch with the proper people.
