Now Available! 8" x 10" Original oil painting by Pat Cross entitled The Looking Glass.
Reflections make beauty twice as the slow moving river grows still for a season until the next storm buffets the water's surface with wind and rain. The gathering trees and willows take full advantage of the looking glass to admire their ruddy complexions.
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 8" x 10" oil painting on a wood panel mounts on a 1" deep cradle that's wired and ready to hang. The cradled 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 oil paintings on the North American landscape paintings by Pat Cross.
