Dawn raises the night curtain to bathe the landscape with renewing light. Quiet waters mirror the onlooking willows, rocks and foliage with fresh anticipation.
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 deep gallery wrap canvas, the painting flows around the deep canvas edge and adds more dimension to the piece, appealing to anyone who also appreciates sculpture. The oil painting mounts in a 15" x 27" x 2" deep handmade, solid wood floater frame that reveals the painted edges, yet protects the painting. This piece is wired and ready to hang in a favored nook, but also perches well on any mantle, counter or table. All materials in this oil painting are of archival quality for lasting impressions.
One of a series of award-winning oil paintings on the North American landscape by Pat Cross.
