Piece description from the artist
"Gallo" (pronounced GAL-lo) is the Italian word for rooster. This rooster is a resident of the farm I stayed at in Imperia, Italy. After some joking debate by the family about not wanting to name the chickens, in case they ever decide to eat them, the kids decided to name him Zamir. So this is Zamir in all his Italian rooster glory.
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.
