12" x 16" Original oil painting by Pat Cross entitled Welcoming Willows now available at UGallery.com
River willows lean in with a blush of color to greet the paddling visitor. The colorful corridor leads to a view of the mountain peak that raises its glacial crown above the horizon line. In this painting, the artist layered glazes of oil paint to add luminance to the colors. Some areas are carefully blended while others are applied with a painting knife to set in contrast the rich texture.
This 12" x 16" oil painting on a wood panel mounts on a 1" deep cradle that's wired and ready to hang. The cradel and back are painted in a soft dove gray making it perfect for perching on an easel and displaying on a credenza, shelf, counter or mantel. All materials in this oil painting are of archival quality for lasting impressions.
One of a series of award-winning landscape paintings by Pat Cross.
