Piece description from the artist
This is an original Italian street scene oil painting by Christopher Clark, fine artist. As you walk among the bustling streets of a small Italian town, you hear talk of nearby farmlands, politics, romance, food. Scents of coffee and pastries waft at you from an open window. And doors with the untold mysteries of everyday Italian life drift past you as you walk toward the afternoon sun, which squeezes its pleasant rays through the towering plaster walls of orange, yellow, and burnt pink.
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.
