"A Morning Walk in June" 16" x 20"
In this painting, I was seeking to evoke some feelings of nostalgia in the mind of the viewer, by choosing a somewhat vintage color palette. Photos of satin party dresses, hat boxes, antique drawer liners and pretty floral wallpapers from the 1940s and 1950s influenced my choices, most notably the range of aqua blues and greens. My grandmother’s attic was a magical place to explore when I was child, as was her amazing garden, and I loved my summers spent at her quiet home. Using transparent glazes of color to soften edges and create dappled light and shadow, I hoped to give the viewer a feeling that this imaginary garden is fading into time.
"A Morning Walk in June" was painted using the acrylic paints on gallery wrapped canvas, varnished to protect it from dust and sunlight. Signed on the front, titled and dated on the back. Arrives wired and ready to hang. 16" x 20" x 1.5" Sides of canvas are painted a muted blue-green that harmonizes with the colors of the painting.
This painting arrives UNFRAMED. I can frame your painting in a simple yet elegant floater frame hand crafted of either metal or wood.
