I create oil and acrylic paintings that use vibrant colors through a subtle employment of tinting strengths over undertones. The medium is applied in a painterly fashion with brushes and palette knife on canvas.
The series I am submitting focuses on canalscapes from Venice where light plays on the architecture in a style akin to the Impressionists. The artwork brings the serene ambience of the quiet canals of Venice to the walls of the American home.
The splash of illustration that extends beyond the straight edge of the painting intends to envelop the viewer and draw him into the environment. Once in, the viewer moves down the canal, wondering what lies around the corner.
