Reading by the gelato shop

Reading by the Gelato Shop

Piece description from the artist

This is an original oil painting by artist Christopher Clark. While in Italy last summer, gelato is of course a daily occurrence, and so is strolling through town. People are always out and about, walking, riding bikes, visiting little shops, going to dinner. This woman was reading quietly right in front of a gelato shop I had just visited. This scene reminds me to stop and enjoy quiet time for yourself, preferably outdoors if you can. This painting is painted in my impressionism style, focusing on the effects of light, and the savoring of brushwork over too many details.

About Christopher Clark

Denver, CO

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.
