Sunlit is a joyful work of art. Painted Alla Prima with boldness and vigourous strokes of paint displaying the artists power of Bravura ! Fully open rose blooms, sun struck by the early afternoon light, accompanied by dark foliage in an upright format. The composition tumbles forward to the viewer, displaying four overlapping flowers in full bloom. ” There is, in my mind , nothing more beautiful to gaze upon in nature than Roses in full bloom, struck by the sun’s rays.” This work celebrates that sentiment especially in it’s loose rendering and Bravura brush strokes. The painting also represents the artist’s obsession with three dimensional qualities.
