BEACH PAINTINGS + PORTRAITS

Ongoing Series. Email me for exhibition or purchase inquiries.

 

A new Collection of french and vintage inspired paintings. These paintings invite you to visually escape into fun, colorful, and imaginative scenes that will whisk you away to another time and place. 

J. M. Culver's new oil paintings explore a contemporary approach to traditional themes: airy pastel beach scenes, sensual portraits, nature reflections, and floral abstracts. The new series was inspired by the artist's daydreaming and desire to escape the long winter while longing for Spring and Summer days.

These intimate paintings feature subtle serene blues to sensual vibrant reds to chic black & whites. By using warm light, movement, texture and patterns, these works explore the female form, nature and quiet momeents. 

These paintings are a celebration of life and an ode to french culture and vintage nostalgia.
