The original oil painting is painted on hand-stretched cotton canvas, 24″x24″. My palette knife impasto painting technique creates a lively textured surface, with really thick paint. The original is no longer available.
I call it Golden Vineyard, and it was painted as a gift for a gentleman who was graduating from school as a vintner. Artistically, I wanted to push the concept of how late autumn sunsets in southern France or Tuscany can have a warm haze about them, and then draw a strong focal point to the couple walking out of the long row of vines at the far end. Sort of a “mission accomplished” viewpoint of all the hard work he’s put into the education.
My original custom giclée paper prints are produced on archival quality fine art papers that are 100% cotton, with a distinctive textured surface and heavy weight.
Custom prints on canvas add an extra level of authenticity. I personally hand-retouch all my canvas prints with a special surface texture that adds additional gloss and recreates the texture present in the original oil painting back into the print. Other custom print options are also available. Contact me directly to discuss before purchasing!
