Piece description from the artist
This is an original oil painting by artist Christopher Clark. In Italy, the food is fabulous, almost always locally grown. And sometimes the simplest of foods yield such powerful flavor. This was a sample of an afternoon snack I had while working on a farm in Imperia, Italy. Add a little focaccia and olive oil, and a glass of red wine made at the farm down the street, and it's the perfect end to a hard day's work.
Christopher Clark specializes in oil paintings of many subjects: romance, dancing, music, Italy, animals, and cityscapes. His impressionist style is compelled by bold brushwork, brilliant colors, and a luminous sense of light.
Christopher Clark has studied art his entire life, ever since he was a boy watching Bob Ross painting shows on TV (that wacky guy with the afro painting "happy little trees"). His art studies and travels have taken him all over the world in pursuit of culture, art knowledge, and painting subjects.
Christopher's favorite subject to paint is light itself, meaning anything becomes a beautiful subject if the light is stunning. Christopher's paintings are collected all over the world, and he is available for commissions of all kinds.
