57 www.wrightsvillebeachmagazine.com WBM With roots in the style of Impressionism, Beck was intrigued by the way the humidity mixed with the air and caused colors to run together as the temperatures soared and dropped throughout the day. He began to remember the reason he was originally attracted to the palette of color from which he paints. Colors do not simply sit by themselves, he says. They marry those around them. They create new designs and colors from their mixtures, and they come and go as quickly as the wind changes, which is why Beck says it was so important to him to move here, and capture the light and color of this area.  “When I came here I found that things moved easier. I am able to go outdoors and paint, and I love watching the way the colors shift as the day goes on, but it isn’t just that. There is a good artistic energy in Wilmington. Not just for painters — for any type of artists. You can go to the coffee shop here, and there is the owner who is a working musician and a writer working on a novel,” he says. Beck secured a judge’s spot at the Wilmington Art Association’s 33rd Annual Juried Spring Art Show and Sale, part of the 2015 NC Azalea Festival. He says he will look for key elements across artistic genres: line, shape, value, color, texture and edge to judge the different mediums. But the most important thing Beck looks for when judging a particular piece is the emotional response that it beckons from him. “You can have work that is lacking in some of the technical issues but has the emotional content strong. There are things you can specifically put your finger on, and things you can’t. There’s an immediate reaction, it grabs you the way music you hear on the radio grabs you,” he says. 7 Sandpiper Street • $885,000 Classic beach cottage in Wrightsville Beach three back from the ocean, furnished. 6266 Ingleside Drive • $648,500 Four bedrooms, 3.5 baths, 3,872 square feet Greenville Manor Bobby Brandon CRS, GRI, ABR, SRES 910-538-6261 • [email protected] www.BobbyBrandon.com Sam Crittenden 910-228-1885 Sarah Dobbs 910-256-7795 Administration Assistant Rainey Wallace 252-230-8523 Bobby Brandon 910-538-6261 Elisabeth Mulligan 910-262-1405 BoBBy BRAndon REAl EStAtE tEAm SOLD
