At San Donato is a plein air (painted outside) painting, valued by some collectors who like the immediacy of the work, knowing it was done on the spot, and in front of the subject. I painted this during my last year of plein air painting, during a workshop in Tuscany, working in the shade, looking out over the sunny landscape.
The painting is 16 inches high by 22 inches wide, acrylic on stretched canvas. The framed dimensions are 17 x 23 inches. The shadow frame cuts nothing out of the picture which seems to float. I signed and dated the painting on the back.
I send a letter of provenance, which increases the value of the work. All my artwork is copyrighted by Eleanor Gilpatrick. Copyright is nontransferable through the purchase of artwork.
Hello!! I am a contemporary realist painter of landscapes, people, still lifes, and abstracts that reflect my love of beauty and the way I see the world. Some paintings deal with peace issues; some are about Climate Change; many have edgy compositions. I never sell prints of my artwork. So, see my descriptions to find out about each piece. Please write to me if you have any questions.
