Art Description

Painting: Oil on Canvas.

A second, larger version of Palazzo Reflection #1 with an overall green undertone and varied emphasis in composition .

In Italy I was entranced by the beautiful palazzo gardens.
Here, a reflection of cypress trees in a pond inspired me. I love cypress trees (mediterranean and Middle Eastern "trees of life") with their deep green spires. They are exclamation points in a landscape.

In this painting the cypress tree reflections are fragmented by the motion of the water.

I apply multiple layers of colors with my palette knife to suggest the movement of the water and its reflections.

Autumnal waterlilies add swaths of orange and pink to contrast against the cool blues of the water. A reflection of the Palazzo is visible in the upper right.

This painting is highly textured, with heavy applications of oil paint.

The painting is on un-stretched primed canvas. Because I paint to the trimmed edges of the canvas, I recommend the painting be mounted in a floating frame so the entire painting is visible.
