We took lots of photos asÂ Daniel worked on his paintings for his “Arkansas Weather Report” show in March at Cantrell Gallery. We thought it would be fun to create a video showing the progression of the paintings. Here is the first video, for the painting The Green Trim. The painting depicts an old country store, once thriving but now sitting abandoned by the roadside in Ladd, Arkansas. We are happy to say that the painting was purchased by an Arkansas fine art collector during the first week of the show. But if you like his work, Daniel has several other works for sale at Cantrell Gallery in Little Rock, Arkansas. Hope you enjoy the video!
Great News! We are pleased to announce that Daniel’s painting ‘Coy’s Castle’ was acquired for the Permanent Collection by The Arts & Science Center for Southeast Arkansas as part of the 2013 Rosenzweig Biennial!! From the press release announcing the purchase: “The landscape painting depicts gin operation buildings, a tower, and silos of the Coy Gin Co. of Coy, Arkansas, located approximately 30 miles northeast of Pine Bluff. The work preserves an iconic and pervasive scene in the Delta landscape that is disappearing rapidly; indeed, since the work’s creation, much of the gin depicted has been since demolished. Inspired by the form and prominence of the tower and connected silos, Coston was reminded of an Albrecht Durer watercolor of a modest European castle, hence the title, Coy’s Castle.”
