|Rojos Hermosos, 30"x40", oil/panel, (click to enlarge)|
The title of this painting is Spanish for "beautiful reds". The client who commissioned this painting missed a similar themed work at auction. She contacted Gallerie de Bellefeuille in Montreal who passed on her desire and asked if I could work with the idea again.
Sometimes this kind of thing presents an opportunity to get right what I did not succeed at in the first painting. I wasn't as happy with the branching structures and the horizon placement the first time. Now with the commission I have been able to improve those compositional aspects to my satisfaction.
