Standing on the bank of the river, cool in the shade of the dense canopy of trees above me, I was attracted to the delicacy of the grasses in front of me, and their purple- green color against the the reflected sky beyond.
The low angle of the sun bathed the scene in golden light.
This painting is dedicated to our friends Juliana and Nino Panzanzio and their amazing restaurant, La Marea, in Old Saybrook, CT.
I am honored to have this painting hanging above the mantel in their dining room.
Nino’s cooking is worth a trip from anywhere. Ciao ~ “Afternoon on the River,” 21 x 28, oil on linen, $7,500 - 28 minutes ago
