Piece description from the artist
This was painted on a swedish burlap coffee sack, mounted with plaster on masonite, and then mounted for hanging. This is a scene from the beautiful circular piazza in the center of Lucca, Italy. The original reference photo I used for this painting was from a tiny little refrigerator magnet, and there wasn’t even a sunset in it! I thought I would see how far I could embellish with my own addition of light and atmosphere.
There is a companion painting for this, called "Lucca at Sunset II". Look for it on my profile and hang both of them if you'd like.
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.
