Spring splash

Spring Splash

Piece description from the artist

This scene is a celebration of my first spring here in Colorado, where the bright red and pink flowering trees by Sloan's Lake in Denver looked especially good at sunrise. I was painting this piece live at the SpringFest Art Festival in Boulder, when a terrific gust of wind blew down my whole easel, shattering my jar of mineral spirits and splashing it all over the corner of this painting. I thought perhaps nature herself was attempting to improve my work, and she just may have, so I left the painting as-is and considered it finished.

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.
