Piece description from the artist
Bergamo, Italy is a medieval city of winding streets and cobblestone roads, complete with outdoor cafes and gelato shops. Very typical of Italy, but of course not boring or commonplace at all. There is a magic to these kinds of cities, which can only be experienced when you feel the ancient stones under your feet, and you emerge from behind the shadow of a tall stone building, blinking in the bright afternoon summer sun.
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.
