Oil on Canvas
Simple White Float Frame
Wired for Hanging
This painting was part of a series of work painted after returning from my trip to Venice in 2015 and was inspired by the wondering paintings of Tintorretto I was blessed to see throughout my adventures in the city. I too sought the luminous color and spiritual depth seeping out of the ruddy depths of earthy tones and the winding alleys of a mysterious place.
In the process of painting this painting I sought the assistance of my mentor, friend and master painter Robert Gilmore. I could not get the painting to work and he agreed. He told me I needed to do something drastic to fix it and if I ruined it then I wasnt really missing much anyway. I took my brush and loaded it with Orange paint and like a butcher painted out huge swathes of detailed forms and drawing. I was left with the piece I have today.
Painting can be delivered framed and stretched ready to hang or removed from the stretcher and delivered rolled in a tube.
Shipping costs for rolled delivery will be significantly less. Any professional frame shop can restretch the canvas on a new stretcher for a fee.
