1885 Pueblo Novo - Original Oil Painting

Details 

By Linda Richter

About the image
The ruin of an old tower house is fondly recognized by many locals on Bonaire. A friend visiting my studio just a day after I finished this painting said, “Is that the house in Nikiboko?” I was pleased he recognized it so I made a point to research the history of this iconic house to share.

The tower house was probably built in the early 20th century but potentially the inscription found on the building “1885 Pueblo Novo” indicates the year the original house was built. The style of the house is a “Cas di Hadrey” (house with a porch) with a square tower. The painting shows the window on the bottom floor of the tower and the sky can be glimpsed through the upper window casement. Shadows within the lower room suggest stairs and an upper floor but it is not safe to enter it. This house is listed by the government in Historic Monuments of Bonaire in 1987.

The patchy colors in grays, pinks, and peaches seem to be part of the concrete and local limestone wall. It doesn’t appear to be layers of paint but maybe minerals that have leached out of the natural materials over the years

A Palm's Heart - Original Oil Painting

Details 

By Linda Richter

About the image
Here is a close-up view of the birthplace of the coconut deep in the heart of the palm tree. They begin life as small brilliant orange clustered buds which grow to football size. They then brown and heavy branch will eventually break from the weight.

Attention - Original Oil Painting

Details 

By Linda Richter

About the image
A red macaw has ruffled up his neck feathers and pulled his head back. His full attention is dead center and right on you. “Well?” he seems to ask, “What do you want?” He has not quite decided if you are bothering him yet.

The red macaw is a Red-and-green Macaw, also known as the Green-winged Macaw (Ara chloropterus).

By Linda Richter

About the image
Chogogo is the local name for flamingo. This flamingo searches the water’s surface in the dimming light of evening. The heat of the day is over and the turquoise waters have darkened.

Donkey Huddle - Original Oil Painting

Details 

By Linda Richter

About the image
Donkeys cluster about the feeding trough at the Donkey Sanctuary. They appear to be in a conversation listening to the one facing away from the viewer. One is concentrating with ears perked.

Flamingo to the Left - Original Oil Painting

Details 

By Linda Richter

About the image
Is this flamingo coiled in watchful repose, or waiting to spring into movement? He seems less than restful but not particularly worried about my presence. The fantastic coral oranges and reds add to the implied heart concept. The mottled brown and blue background allows the flamingos to pop to the foreground.

Second in a series of three flamingo inspired paintings. The canvas sides are painted a solid deep coral red

Flamingo to the Right - Original Oil Painting

Details 

By Linda Richter

About the image
The expression of the flamingo’s body and neck is a little more coy with the soft fullness of the body behind the neck. The fantastic coral oranges and reds add to the implied heart concept. The mottled brown and blue background allows the flamingos to pop to the foreground.

Third in a series of three flamingo inspired paintings. The canvas sides are painted a solid deep coral red.

Flamingo World - Original Oil Painting

Details 

Flamingo World By Linda Richter

About the image
Flamingo World is a close up portait of a flamingo and its graceful neck. The unusual view is from above the bird as it dips its head into the water to feed. The water’s surface and rich colors provide a unique background contrasting with the brilliant colors of the flamingo’s feather. The rich blues and greens remind me of the big blue marble as the world appears from space.
