Dolce Vita, #1
(18" x 24", oil on canvas)
This painting was inspired by my recent research into BC's Okanagan Valley, known in part for it's vineyards and wine festivals. This is the first piece in a series that I am titling Dolce Vita, or, good life, as represented by the bounty of the area. Compositions such as this are endless in their variety of colours and textures, a feast for both the palette and for the eye of the artist. The only possible drawback being a rather "fragrant" studio as the cheeses melt under my hot lights.
