NEW ! Off the Trodden Trail 16" x 12" original oil painting by Pat Cross.
As the afternoon heat rises, the sound of rippling water entices the hiker off the beaten path to seek refreshment. However, much more than cooler temperatures reward the traveler who discovers a feast for the eyes.
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.
Painted on a 16” x 12” gallery wrap canvas, the water flows around the 1.5" deep edge and adds more dimension to the piece, appealing to anyone who also appreciates sculpture. This piece is wired and ready to hang in a favored nook, but also perches well on any mantle, shelf, credenza or desk. All materials in this oil painting are of archival quality for lasting impressions.
