The Classic Fiat 500 Automobile

Photography Prints

I have to admit it. I went to Italy and fell in love with the classic Fiat 500. We’ve started to see the redesigned modern version here in the United States but over in Rome, Florence and other Italian cities, seeing classic, vintage Fiat 500s in their native habit was a treat for the eyes.

Tiny little old Fiat 500s with appropriate scratches and small dents snuggled up against the curbs, squeezed in between Vespas motor scooters, delivery vans and crates full of eggplants and milk in front of an Italian restaurant with the smell of simmering tomato sauce and parked on top of ancient cobble stone streets was simply heaven.

I did this pop art version of the Fiat 500 above with bold colors and a black background in a square format.

I also have this bright purple version of a Fiat 500 parked on the street as well as this graphic design illustration for t-shirts, sweatshirts, throw pillows and more. You can even choose the background color.

The Fiat 500 (Italian: Cinquecento, Italian pronunciation: [ˌtʃiŋkweˈtʃɛnto]) is a rear-engine two-door, four passenger city car manufactured and marketed by Fiat Automobiles from 1957 to 1975 over a single generation in coupé and station wagon body styles.

Launched as the Nuova (new) 500 in July 1957, a cheap and practical town car. Measuring 2.97 metres (9 feet 9 inches) long, and originally powered by 479 cc two-cylinder, air-cooled engine, the 500 is considered one of the first city cars.

In 2007, the 50th anniversary of the Nuova 500’s launch, Fiat launched another new 500, stylistically inspired by the 1957 Nuova 500, featuring a front-mounted engine and front-wheel drive.

Paramount Theater Boston

Art Prints

The Paramount Theater Boston is a watercolor styled photograph by Edward M. Fielding and is available as prints, canvas prints, frame and matted wall art as well as various product variations.  Part of a portfolio of over 4,000 fine art photographs and artwork.

From Wikipedia:

The Paramount opened in 1932 as a 1700-seat, single-screen movie theatre. It was one of the first movie houses in Boston to play talking motion pictures. The theatre was named after its original owner, Paramount Pictures. It closed in 1976 and most of the Art Deco interior decoration was destroyed in the 1980s during the removal of asbestos.[1] In 1984, the building was designated a Boston Landmark by the Boston Landmarks Commission.

In 2002, Millennium Partners agreed to restore the Paramount’s facade, marquee, and vertical sign in exchange for city approval of their adjacent Ritz-Carlton Towers project. The city occasionally lights the sign at night. The city’s hopes that the site would be developed by the Cambridge-based American Repertory Theater were not fulfilled.

In April 2005, Emerson College announced plans to renovate the Paramount Theatre and build a performing arts facility in and around the original building. The $77 million project involved the renovation of the building and adjacent parcels of land into a complex containing a 550-seat theater, a Performance Development Center, a student residence hall, a 125-seat black box theater, a 170-seat film screening room, eight rehearsal studios ranging from 700 square feet (65 m2) to 1,900 square feet (180 m2), six practice rooms for individuals and small groups, a sound stage for film production classes, a scene shop, several classrooms, a restaurant, and up to a dozen offices for faculty and staff.

The project was completed in the fall of 2008.

I’ll Fly Away Artwork

Sell Art Online

This summer I had a great opportunity to photograph one of my favorite places on the planet, Prince Edward Island with bonus of having a car full of “willing” models – friends and family.

Remembering the rather consistent coastal breezes on the island from previous trips to Prince Edward Island, I did a bit of pre-planning and brought along some shear fabric as a prop from my model. Add the perfect location, in front of a beautifully restored and freshly painted lighthouse at New London beach and all of the elements came together to create “I’ll Fly Away”. The final image is a digitally enhanced photograph that brings about a painting like result.

A bit of history about this lighthouse which is officially called “New London Back Range” and is snugged into the dunes around the French River and an area known as Yankee Hill.

When Prince Edward Island joined Confederation in 1873 there was an evaluation of all Island lights. The Superintendents of lighthouses deemed a replacement of the two small lanterns raised on day beacons which guided ships into New London Bay. 

Built in 1876, the New London Back Range was originally an independent light but became the Back Range when a new front light was built in 1879, approximately 300 m (1000ft.) seaward at the narrow entrance to New London Bay

In 1876, George McKenzie of French River constructed the New London Lighthouse for $1,300. Upon completion, he stayed on as lighthouse keeper for twenty years.

Vintage Tractors

September 14th, 2016 – Etna, NH

New vintage tractor artwork. Photographer and visual artist Edward M. Fielding (www.edwardfielding.com) has just release a new artwork in his popular series of vintage tractor photographs, paintings and art.

Fielding says, “I now have close to 100 photographs and artworks in my Vintage Tractors portfolio. I’m a a big fan of these farming workhorses, really the most important machine on any farm. I’m especially fond of the old reliable equipment that family farmers keep in good shape. Some of restored as a piece of history and become as pampered as a classic car but I see a lot of these old tractors in use around the Upper Valley region of Vermont and New Hampshire where I live.

At local fairs you can see vintage tractor clubs displaying their pride and joys but I really get excited when I see one of these beauties cutting hay in a neighbor’s field or pulling a trailer float at a local Fourth of July parade.”

The newest artwork is an acrylic painting effect created using an original photograph of a row of vintage tractors recently found on Prince Edward Island in Canada. Fielding just returned from a photography exploration of the island from its rural seaside farms and countryside to the red sand beaches and lighthouses.

This vintage tractor artwork can be purchase as a framed and matted print, metal print, canvas or printed and rolled in a tube for framing locally. Canvas prints are available all the way up to huge sofa sized 60.00″ x 33.75″ prints for maximum impact.

tractor is an engineering vehicle specifically designed to deliver a high tractive effort (or torque) at slow speeds, for the purposes of hauling a trailer or machinery used in agriculture or construction. Most commonly, the term is used to describe a farm vehicle that provides the power and traction to mechanize agricultural tasks, especially (and originally) tillage, but nowadays a great variety of tasks. Agricultural implements may be towed behind or mounted on the tractor, and the tractor may also provide a source of power if the implement is mechanized.

Plein Air Painting at the Cornish-Windsor Bridge

This weekend my son’s pastel class with Derek Bell from the AVA Gallery in Lebanon, New Hampshire headed out to the Cornish-Windsor bridge to do a little plein air pastel painting. This bridge spans the Connecticut River connecting the towns of Cornish N.H. and Windsor, Vt. and is the longest wooden covered bridge in the United States and the longest two-span covered bridge in the world.  They set up in a nice spot at the boat launch between the entrance to Saint-Gauden’s and the Windsor-Cornish Covered Bridge.  There is a nice flat, grassy spot with a perfect view of the river and the bridge.

Plein Air

Video of a plein air pastel painting class working on landscapes in the Cornish and Windsor area of the Connecticut River Valley. This region is home to the Saint-Gaudens National Historic Site in Cornish, New Hampshire, USA, preserves the home, gardens, and studios of Augustus Saint-Gaudens, one of America’s foremost sculptors.

The Cornish Art Colony (or Cornish Artists’ Colony, or Cornish Colony) was a popular art colony centered in Cornish, New Hampshire from about 1895 through the years of World War I. Attracted by the natural beauty of the area, about 100 artists, sculptors, writers, designers, and politicians lived there either full-time or during the summer months. With views across the Connecticut River Valley to Mount Ascutney in Vermont, the bucolic scenery purported to resemble that of an Italian landscape.

The central figure of the Cornish Colony was Augustus Saint-Gaudens. Beginning around 1885, Augustus attracted a summer colony of artists that grew into a single extended social network. Some were related, some were friends, some were promising students from the Art Students League of New York that Saint-Gaudens had co-founded, and some were Saint-Gaudens’ assistants who developed significant careers of their own.

While the students painted I had a chance to retrace my own paths to some of areas natural and historic treasures.  I spent a fast hour attracting ticks, poison ivy and photographing and filming the waterfall and historic buildings around the Blow Me Down Mill on the Maxfield Parrish Highway near Saint-Gaudens National Historic Site.  I also grabbed some reference photographs of the Cornish-Windsor bridge for one of my colored pencil techniques of altered digital works.

This floral pastel painting by Caffrey Fielding of flowers in an old canning jar is available as prints, framed and matted ready to hang artwork, as a canvas, acrylic, metal or on products such as tote bags, throw pillows, cell phone case and more.

Proceeds go to supporting this young art students summer session at a six week program at the Rhode Island School of Design (RISD) in Providence Rhode Island.

Rhode Island School of Design (RISD, /ˈrɪzdiː/) is a fine arts and design college located in Providence, in the U.S. state of Rhode Island. It has been ranked among the best art and design universities in the United States.

Founded in 1877, it is located at the base of College Hill; the RISD campus is contiguous with the Brown University campus. The two institutions share social, academic, and community resources and offer joint courses. Applicants to RISD are required to complete RISD’s famous two-drawing “hometest”, one of which involves the trademark RISD bicycle drawing.

Caffrey Fielding is a high school student at Hanover High School in Hanover, New Hampshire and recently received an honorable mention at the annual regional student art show at the AVA Gallery in Lebanon, NH.

A pastel (UK: /ˈpæstl/; US: /pæˈstɛl/) is an art medium in the form of a stick, consisting of pure powdered pigment and a binder. The pigments used in pastels are the same as those used to produce all colored art media, including oil paints; the binder is of a neutral hue and low saturation.

Pastels have been used by artists since the Renaissance, and gained considerable popularity in the 18th century, when a number of notable artists made pastel their primary medium.

An artwork made using pastels is called a pastel (or a pastel drawing or pastel painting). Pastel used as a verb means to produce an artwork with pastels; as an adjective it means pale in color.

The Volkswagen Type 2, known officially (depending on body type) as the Transporter, Kombi or Microbus, or, informally, as the Bus (US) or Camper (UK), is a cabover panel van introduced in 1950 by the German automaker Volkswagen as its secondcar model. Following – and initially deriving from Volkswagen’s first model, the Type 1 (Beetle) – it was given the factory designation Type 2.[10]

As one of the forerunners of the modern cargo and passenger vans, the Type 2 gave rise to forward control competitors in the United States in the 1960s, including the Ford Econoline, the Dodge A100, and the Chevrolet Corvair 95 Corvan, the latter adopting the Type 2’s rear-engine configuration. European competition included the 1960s FF layout Renault Estafette and theFR layout Ford Transit.

Like the Beetle, the van has received numerous nicknames worldwide, including the “microbus”, “minibus”,[11] and, because of its popularity during the counterculture movement of the 1960s, “Hippie van”.

According to Wikipedia:

Robert Norman “Bob” Ross (October 29, 1942 – July 4, 1995) was an American painter, art instructor, and television host. He was best known as the creator and host of The Joy of Painting, an instructional television program that aired from 1983 to 1994 on PBS in the United States, and also aired in Canada, Latin America and Europe.

His style is described as:

Ross used the wet-on-wet oil painting technique, in which the painter continues adding paint on top of still-wet paint rather than waiting a lengthy amount of time to allow each layer of paint to dry. From the beginning, the program kept the selection of tools and colors simple so that viewers wouldn’t have to make large investments in expensive equipment. Ross frequently recommended odorless paint thinner (aka odorless mineral spirits) for brush cleaning. Combining the wet painting method with the use of large one- and two-inch brushes, as well as painting knives, allowed Ross to paint trees, clouds, mountains, and water in a matter of seconds. Each painting would start with simple strokes that appeared as nothing more than smudges of color. As he added more and more strokes, the blotches would transform into intricate landscapes

“Ross was well known for the catchphrases he used while painting such as “happy little trees”.[20] In most episodes of The Joy of Painting, Ross would note that one of his favorite parts of painting was cleaning the brush”
