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.
