Venice italy nil the front door

Venice, Italy – the Front Door

Piece description from the artist

While in Venice, I made the ridiculous touristy mistake of renting a small boat with the intent of exploring little canals and taking photos alone. Being an inexperienced motorboat pilot wasn't bad enough. The small maneuvering space of these little canals was tricky, and I caught some lovely colorful Italian phrases uttered to me by boat owners that I bumped into. And the large wide-open canals were frothy with more boats than I could count. I returned to the boat rental place a sweaty, nervous wreck, but with a few hundred photos that I took through my camera without even looking through the finder. This scene, as serene as it appears, came from that silly adventure.

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.
